Tenable Announces General Availability of Log Correlation Engine 4.4

Tenable delivers update to SecurityCenter CV’s Log Correlation Engine, making it easier to integrate Continuous Monitoring in your IT infrastructure.

Tenable recommends that customers of these products consider upgrading to take advantage of the new self-monitoring and enhanced integration features in this release.

New in Tenable LCE 4.4

LCE 4.4 allows system administrators to easily integrate Tenable LCE and SecurityCenter CV into their environments. The following key capabilities will be available in the release:

Common Event Format (CEF) Support

Tenable LCE 4.4 now supports syslog event forwarding in the Common Event Format. CEF is an open log format that is supported by many SIEM and IT infrastructure products. It is also used when describing rules to send syslog based alerts. CEF support will allow system administrators to easily integrate security and network products into their Tenable SecurityCenter CV implementations, providing instant visibility into the network health of their IT environment.

Health and Status Monitoring

Administrators can easily monitor the health and status of each daemon/process, including statistical information about event volume from each log source. This release also monitors the status of syslog sensors. These features allow users to ensure the continuous network monitoring of their IT resources, and quickly identify issues in log sources that may be operating improperly.

Configuration Updates

LCE 4.4 introduces a new HTML5 interface, as well as a web-based First Time Setup wizard for a simpler install. The wizard guides the user through the required configuration steps. In addition, LCE is able to reload configuration changes automatically without the need for a restart. These enhancements dramatically improve the administration experience for security analysts using LCE.

Native Syslog Rule Response

LCE 4.4 now includes a new "Syslog" option that supports variable substitution like the "Command" option, but sends the syslog from within LCE/SecurityCenter. This feature significantly improves security analyst efficiency when used for alerting on frequent logs.
