SolarWinds Rolls Out Security Information and Event Management for Resource-Constrained Security and IT Pro [Professional Services Close - Up]
(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SolarWinds said it has released SolarWinds Log & Event Manager 6.0, an all-in-one Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) designed specifically for the resource-constrained security and IT Pro.
According to a release from the company, by adding FIM, fully embedded into Log & Event Manager's event stream -- SolarWinds is offering an SIEM that provides a combination of intelligence and in- depth remediation.
"The growing prevalence of advanced hacking tools, organized cyber-crime rings and sophisticated attack techniques coupled with the pressure to meet regulatory compliance are creating demand for stronger security practices across all organizations. Unfortunately, most SIEM solutions are designed with only the large enterprise security teams in mind," said Suaad Sait, executive vice president, products and markets, SolarWinds. "SolarWinds' focus is serving organizations that have resource-constrained -- yet highly important -- security and IT Pros to deliver the automation, deep inspection, active blocking and broad compliance management they so desperately need at a cost and manageability level they can realize. We call it 'SIEM for One, SIEM for All' and believe that it is a long overdue solution for the broader IT market."
SolarWinds Log & Event Manager can help detect attacks and stop them in their tracks through active response, including:
-Zero-day malware -- Log & Event Manager can detect changes to key system files and executable writes, providing deeper insight into zero day malware. Log & Event Manager's remediation capabilities can halt this attack by automatically stopping the running malware process.
-Insider Abuse -- By auditing files directly, Log & Event Manager can more accurately identify insider abuse through intelligent correlation rules. Active integration with active directory settings can disable accounts, change user groups and rights.
-Advanced Persistent Threats -- Advanced threats are stealthy and very hard to detect. By inserting a granular, file-based auditing into the existing event stream -- Log & Event Manager can help resource-constrained security pros pinpoint these attacks faster and help them block them in progress.
SolarWinds Log & Event Manager delivers SIEM capabilities in a virtual appliance.
Log & Event Manager automates the complex task of security management, root cause analysis, incident response and continuous compliance, enabling IT Pros to immediately identify and remediate threats and vital network issues--before critical systems and data can be exploited.
SolarWinds provides IT management software.
