SolarWinds Asks: If Advanced Security Threats Affect Organizations of All Sizes, Why Should Powerful SIEM Solutions Only Cater to the Global 2000?

Now With Real-Time File Integrity Monitoring (FIM), Latest SolarWinds(R) Log & Event Manager 6.0 Is the Only SIEM Solution to Deliver Greater Intelligence Into Security Monitoring, Remediation and an Affordable Price Point Any IT Organization Can Afford

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced the availability of SolarWinds Log & Event Manager 6.0, the only all-in-one Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) designed specifically for the resource-constrained security and IT Pro. With this latest release, SolarWinds provides advanced security insight through real-time File Integrity Monitoring (FIM), which helps to actively detect advanced persistent threats, insider abuse and helps comply with numerous regulations such as PCI DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA.

When it comes to IT security, organizations can't stop what they can't see. The availability of "DIY" malware kits, improvement in automated hacking tools, combined with advanced social engineering techniques are making attacks harder to detect from logs alone. By adding FIM, fully embedded into Log & Event Manager's event stream, at no extra cost -- SolarWinds is offering the only affordable SIEM that provides the essential combination of advanced intelligence and in-depth remediation in an easy to use, easy to manage virtual appliance.

"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."

Three Real Threats IT Teams Can Overcome with SolarWinds Log & Event Manager 6.0
According to the 2014 Verizon® Data Breach Investigations Report, breaches caused by malware, external hacking and social engineering techniques are skyrocketing and insider espionage targeting internal data and trade secrets is on the rise. SolarWinds Log & Event Manager can help detect advanced 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 comprehensive SIEM capabilities in a highly affordable, easy-to-deploy virtual appliance. Log & Event Manager automates and simplifies 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.

In a recent group SIEM product review conducted by SC Magazine, SolarWinds Log & Event Manager 5.7 received a five-star review and rating, stating:

"SolarWinds has put together another outstanding product. The SolarWinds Log & Event Manager (LEM) offers a quality set of log management, event correlation, search and reporting facilities. This gives organizations the ability to collect large volumes of data from virtually any device on a network in real time and then correlate the data into actionable information. The company does this by paying attention to the need for real-time incident response and effective forensics, as well as security and IT troubleshooting issues. Another winning set of features are the quality regulatory compliance management and ready-made reporting functions."

SolarWinds Log & Event Manager pricing starts at $4,495 and includes the first year of maintenance. For more information, including a downloadable, free 30-day evaluation, visit the SolarWinds website or call 866.530.8100.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
