Oxford, United Kingdom, 8th September, 2008 – Secerno, the technology leader in data security today announced a partnership with ArcSight, Inc. (, a leading global provider of compliance and security management solutions, to provide enterprises with a comprehensive security solution to reduce risk and increase visibility across IT infrastructure.

As a DataView Partner within the ArcSight EnterpriseView program, Secerno delivers the capability to monitor and protect confidential data residing in corporate databases. Secerno.SQL enables enterprises to respond to threats to their databases in real-time through Secerno’s unique database activity blocking capabilities and will enable full visibility of previously unseen activity. The ArcSight platform correlates the information from Secerno.SQL with user activity beyond the database to give joint customers a clear picture of what is happening to their information. As a result, organisations benefit from improved compliance with confidentiality laws as well as increased data security.

“Customers need to know who is on the network, what data they are seeing, and which actions they are taking with that data,” commented Jeff Scheel, senior vice president of business development at ArcSight. “Our partnership with Secerno provides the capability to view activity and prevent unauthorised actions within corporate databases. Customers can leverage their investment in ArcSight by adding database coverage without the overhead of internal database logging. The result is a broader view of enterprise activity, beyond perimeter security."

Steve Hurn, CEO of Secerno added: “We are delighted to be working with ArcSight and developing a partnership that provides enterprises with an easy way to get pre-integrated, best-of-breed security solutions. As information is compromised more and more by malicious attacks and security breaches these types of solutions are becoming absolutely crucial for customers.”

The partnership will be officially announced at the ArcSight User Conference in Alexandra, Virginia where Secerno is a gold sponsor.

About Secerno

Headquartered in Oxford, UK, Secerno provides the world’s most advanced, comprehensive and intelligent activity monitoring and database security solution, now uniquely available in both a hardware and virtual appliance.

The company offers the highest levels of protection against internal and external threats, optimises compliance auditing and delivers the ability to improve the security of applications. Its proprietary machine-learning technology automatically fingerprints the true intent of all database interactions, enabling organisations to see and prove with unprecedented granular analysis exactly how their databases are accessed.

At the core of all products is Secerno’s SynoptiQ technology, based on breakthrough research into efficient grammatical clustering. SynoptiQ analyses all database traffic to automatically fingerprint the true intent of all database requests. This enables organisations to see and prove with unprecedented granular analysis exactly how their data is accessed and changed. SynoptiQ automatically clusters database interactions with others of similar intent; highlighting areas of concern such as authenticated users abusing their privileges, attackers masquerading as authenticated users or any other form of SQL injection attack.

Uniquely, Secerno enforces a positive security policy of only approved behaviour, providing the option to either log, monitor, block or substitute database requests, all the while delivering zero false positives and eliminating the need for resource-intensive allow and block lists or externally-produced signatures
