the1 company that's tired of how press releases always start,
has been named a Cool Vendor in the "Cool Vendors in Security Operations
and Vulnerability Management" report by technology research firm,
Gartner (News - Alert), Inc. Expel was one of four vendors recognized in the report,
which evaluates emerging vendors in a particular market. According to
the report "security and risk management leaders should consider new
vendors of security technology and services to address security
monitoring and vulnerability management requirements."2

why Gartner thinks each vendor is cool, their challenges and who should
care is available here: http://info.expel.io/expel-named-cool-vendor-by-gartner
"I'm a little biased. Of course I think we're cool," said Dave Merkel,
CEO at Expel. "Well...Expel is cool. I'm not. I'm a suburban dad. But,
to us it's nice to hear someone else - especially Gartner - write it
down and explain the ins and outs of why Expel is cool."
As a side note, we should probably mention that Expel replaces alerts
with answers using a new approach called transparent managedsecurity.
Expel analysts use customers' existing security products to monitor
their environment 24x7 and investigate suspicious activity. When Expel
spots an attack the customer gets answers, written in plain english,
that explain exactly what to do, including how to fix the root cause of
problems that happen over and over again. Customers can watch
investigations as they're unfolding and take action immediately - all
within a shared interface. A complete overview of Expel's offering is
available at: https://www.expel.io/managed-security/.

provides transparent managed security. It's the antidote for companies
trapped in failed relationships with their managed security service
provider (MSSP) and those looking to avoid the frustration of working
with one in the first place.
Transparency is the unique bit. You get 24x7 access to our security
analysts so you can watch investigations as they're unfolding and take
action immediately - all within a shared interface. Our analysts monitor
your environment and investigate suspicious activity using the security
products you already own. When we find a problem, we tell you exactly
what to do about it including how to fix the root cause of problems that
happen over and over. To learn more, check us out at https://www.expel.io.
