ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the availability of its Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) software for cost-conscious SMBs and enterprises, EventLog Analyzer. Previously dedicated to log analytics and compliance reporting duties, the latest version of EventLog Analyzer enters the SIEM arena with the addition of IT data indexing, universal log parsing and universal log search capabilities as well as a streamlined user interface.
Recent security breaches at Yahoo!, LinkedIn, eHarmony and others highlight the need for companies to protect themselves against criminal hacks. Meanwhile, regulatory mandates demand more companies to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and other compliance acts. SIEM is becoming a key technology to help companies of all sizes thwart increasingly-sophisticated cyber attacks as well as comply with internal and third-party regulations.
“For IT departments, SIEM offers a way to swiftly discover security threats and compliance violations and inform immediate, remediating action,” said Chenthil Kumaran, product manager, ManageEngine. “However, SIEM has traditionally been priced out of reach for the value-seeking SMBs and enterprises. Those that could afford it were often overwhelmed by complex solutions that were difficult to implement and operate. EventLog Analyzer brings SIEM to the masses, with potent features in an affordable solution that’s easy to deploy and use.”
EventLog Analyzer: SIEM for the Masses
The revamped EventLog Analyzer provides the industry’s most cost-effective IT SIEM solution, meeting all critical SIEM capabilities — log management, compliance reporting, user and application monitoring, and simple deployment and support. With EventLog Analyzer in place, organizations can automate the entire process of managing terabytes of machine-generated logs by collecting, analyzing, reporting, archiving and searching from one central location.
The latest version of EventLog Analyzer introduces advanced functionality that facilitates effortless and effective network log forensics and SIEM, with features such as:
- Streamlined user interface: The sleek, new user interface offers improved flexibility and functionality. Support for customizable dashboard views and the enhanced user experience provide better visibility into network user activities, policy violations, network anomalies, system downtime, and network threats.
- Universal Log Parsing and Indexing (ULPI): EventLog Analyzer can now receive ANY human-readable log and break it down into meaningful field-value pairs to enhance indexing and searching capabilities. [Feature video: http://ow.ly/f7c6l]
- Enhanced IT search: Users can search any kind of log formats with the flexibility to construct custom search expressions to perform wild-card search, phrase search, Boolean search, grouped search and range search. [Feature video: http://ow.ly/f7ceR]
- Log field extraction: Provides an interactive regular expression (regex) syntax builder for extracting one or more raw log fields, which further adds intelligence to the universal log parser. [Feature video: http://ow.ly/f7c6l]
The new features above complement long-standing EventLog Analyzer highlights such as its web-based user interface, agentless architecture (with optional agents), support for all log types, ability to import log data, and a wide variety of reporting options including compliance reports and customizable reports.
“EventLog Analyzer helps us mitigate threats, conduct log forensic analysis, monitor server usage and meet regulatory compliance requirements,” said Dimitri Yioulos, chief information officer, Onpoint Financial Corporation. “Beyond the security and compliance advantages, EventLog Analyzer plays an important role in optimizing network uptime. Finding the root cause of network problems can be like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack. EventLog Analyzer is a very useful tool, providing a simple, powerful log parser to greatly accelerate and simplify that root-cause analysis.”
Pricing and Availability
EventLog Analyzer 8.0 is available immediately. EventLog Analyzer starts at $395 for 10 hosts and is available for download at http://ow.ly/d57gb. A fully functional, 30-day trial version is also available for download.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
