NitroSecurity to Provide Security and PCI Compliance for Green Mountain Coffee Roasters

Selects NitroView SIEM, Log Management and Database Activity Monitoring Solutions.


SAN FRANCISCO February 15, 2011 – NitroSecurity, Inc., the leader in high-performance, content-aware security information and event management (SIEM) solutions, today announced that Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Inc. (GMCR), a leader in specialty coffee and coffeemakers, has selected the company’s integrated NitroView SIEM, Log Management and Database Activity Monitoring solutions to enhance its security posture.Founded in 1981, GMCR is recognized for its award-winning coffees, innovative brewing technology and socially responsible business practices. Widely known for its family of brands including Keurig®, Green Mountain Coffee®, Tully’s Coffee®, Newman’s Own® Organics coffee and others, GMCR was ranked # 2 on Fortune’s 2010 list of the 100 Fastest-Growing Companies.

As a result of its growth, the company needed to replace its existing log management platforms with a more scalable and flexible security solution that could perform granular searches and correlate security events in real-time for the purposes of threat detection, incident response and forensics. As a company with PCI DSS compliance requirements, GMCR liked the flexibility associated with NitroSecurity’s log management functionality including the ability to segment by device category, multiple storage options, and the ease to retrieve and search archived data.“After performing extensive due diligence, NitroSecurity offered the highest performance and scalability; the most comprehensive functionality; a ‘single pane of glass’ user interface; and the ability to integrate with our vulnerability scanning tools,” said Mike Conlogue, Network Engineer at GMCR.

“NitroView provides us with a solution that can meet our current security and compliance demands, and scale readily as we do.”NitroSecurity’s integrated NitroView SIEM solution – which includes NitroView Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) and NitroView Enterprise Log Manager (ELM) – stood out among six other competitors during the evaluation process. NitroView offered GMCR unparalleled scalability in automating log monitoring, aggregation, correlation and analysis; and single-click, granular access to source log records for trend identification, incident response and detailed forensics. It also provided the most user-friendly and comprehensive interface for all SIEM and log management functions.GMCR was initially focused on replacing its current log management and event correlation solution. By including multiple departments in the evaluation process, though, the company quickly realized the value of the NitroView suite of products. In particular, GMCR’s Database Group sought a solution to create an automated transaction trail with less performance impact than existing tools. NitroSecurity’s NitroView Database Monitor (DBM) so impressed GMCR that the company selected it to complete the solution, and free up the Database Group to address other equally valuable projects. “Global leaders like GMCR require security and compliance solutions that are flexible and robust enough to grow with their rapidly expanding businesses,” said Ken Levine, CEO of NitroSecurity. “

By partnering with NitroSecurity, GMCR will know that its critical information and compliance requirements are being addressed by best-in-class products and services.”For more information on NitroView and other NitroSecurity offerings, please visit the company’s Web site at http://www.nitrosecurity.com.About NitroSecurityNitroSecurity develops high-performance security information and event management (SIEM) solutions that protect critical information and infrastructure.
