ManageEngine Delivers SIEM for Cost-Conscious SMBs, Enterprises EventLog Analyzer Optimized for Security Information and Event Management

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.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics.

The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
