The San Francisco-based company is expected to unveil an integrated security analytics bundle for its partners and customers sometime next week, which officials say will tighten up access, delete or modify data stored on Centera appliance disks in write-once, read many (WORM) formats for compliance purposes.

SenSage’s analytic software automatically collects security event log data from IT devices including application servers, security appliances, switches, routers and firewall servers. It stores this data in a queryable data repository for trend analysis and network activity monitoring.

The bundles will be sold through SenSage’s direct sales force and indirect channels. It will include SenSage’s core software which a four-node Centera systems and comes pre-built, industry-specific rules and reports to support regulatory and auditing initiatives, like Sarbanes Oxley and HIPAA, which mandate data to be stored for several years.

Founded in 2000 as Addmark Technologies, SenSage’s software analyzes, monitors and stores terabyte-amounts of security event log data, a new class of data that SenSage’s vice president of marketing Scott Gordon says is growing at an exponential rate.

The average enterprise collects a minimum of 15 gigabytes of access and security data a day, while some can collect up to 100 gigabytes per day, Gordon pointed out. All the data we collect remains online for analysis.

SenSage says it will offer three upwardly scalable configurations, starting with an 11-terabyte (compressed capacity) base offering priced at around $200,000.

Around 50% of SenSage’s revenue comes from indirect sales, via partners. The company hopes to raise this percentage even further next year and is actively seeking out vertical solutions partners.
