ManageEngine Introduces IT Security and Compliance with Firewall Analyzer, EventLog Analyzer Enhancements
Sep 09, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, announced key enhancements to its firewall security and configuration management software, Firewall Analyzer, and to EventLog Analyzer, its log management and IT compliance software for security information and event management (SIEM).
Now, Firewall Analyzer provides security policy management for Cisco and FortiNet firewalls as well as in-depth reporting on used and unused firewall policies and policy objects. EventLog Analyzer can now manage event logs from Amazon Web Server Windows instances and collect audit logs generated by AS/400 and MS SQL systems. Together, the products' upgrades help businesses bolster their IT security and compliance.
According to a release, companies defending against cyber-attacks are finding it critical to analyze traffic patterns of their firewalls' most used and unused policies. Unused policies, in particular, can leave the network vulnerable to a brute force attack. Meanwhile, a growing number of IT organizations are expanding beyond a single premise to include co-location facilities as well as public cloud services. In all cases, IT teams are challenged to defend against increasingly sophisticated cyber threats and to maintain compliance with internal security policies and regulatory directives such as PCI DSS, FISMA, SOX and HIPAA.
"To ensure a secure corporate network, network admins must plug all the possible security holes and monitor the traffic patterns in real time to spot unintended network traffic," said Pravin Kumar, product manager at ManageEngine "With this release of Firewall Analyzer, our customers can analyze firewall policies and rules, pinpoint security flaws in their network and track traffic information visually using a geo-location map view."
"Multi-site IT infrastructure and cloud adoption are commonplace for our customers these days," said Chenthil Kumaran, product manager at ManageEngine. "By supporting event log management of Amazon Web Server instances, EventLog Analyzer helps IT organizations centralize log management and thwart security breaches in real time. And ease of use has been improved thanks to a drag-and-drop alert builder and tags for search queries."
The new features for Firewall Analyzer 8.0 and EventLog Analyzer 8.6 are available immediately. Firewall Analyzer pricing starts at $395 for one device and is available for download at http://manageengine.com/products/firewall/download.html. EventLog Analyzer pricing starts at $795 for 25 hosts and is available for download at http://manageengine.com/products/eventlog/download.html.
