Reed Smith LLP Selects ArcSight to Enhance Network Visibility and Mitigate Risk

FishNet Security Teams with ArcSight to Deliver Comprehensive Security Solution

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- ArcSight, Inc., an HP company and leading global provider of cybersecurity and compliance solutions, today announced that international law firm Reed Smith LLP selected ArcSight to provide enhanced visibility and risk mitigation across its global infrastructure.

In addition, Reed Smith chose FishNet Security, an ArcSight channel partner and leading provider of information security solutions, to assist with and provide support for the comprehensive solution deployment. 

Reed Smith represents many of the world’s leading companies in complex litigation and high-stakes disputes, cross-border and strategic transactions, and crucial regulatory matters. “The ability to collect, analyze and correlate data across our network to identify and prioritize security risks is a top focus,” said Eric Mazurak, network and security engineer, Reed Smith LLP. “We look forward to working with both ArcSight and FishNet to not only improve the security posture of our global infrastructure, but also gain additional visibility into our day-to-day traffic.”

As part of the deployment, Reed Smith selected the ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) to provide a powerful analysis engine for managing threats and risks across its network, as well as ArcSight Logger to capture, store and search on any type of information, anytime. These solutions will help enable a hierarchical system of alerting, escalation and response to emerging threats.

Reed Smith chose ArcSight after evaluating every major vendor represented in the Gartner 2010 Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management.(1)

“Mitigating cybercrime is more complex than simply monitoring violations of security policy. It requires the ability to collect, analyze and correlate many complex points of data across a global network,” said Hugh Njemanze, chief technology officer, ArcSight. “ArcSight provides customers such as Reed Smith with the analytics and technology to improve visibility and risk mitigation across the network, ensuring a high level of protection for digital assets.” 

As a leading provider of information security solutions and services, FishNet Security enables clients to effectively manage risk, meet compliance requirements and reduce costs while maximizing security effectiveness and operational efficiency. “Together with ArcSight, we look forward to delivering a comprehensive information security solution to Reed Smith that enhances overall visibility, improves security effectiveness and reduces risk across its enterprise,” said Gordon Shevlin, executive vice president, FishNet Security.
