Tenable releases file integrity monitoring, historic log processing and event alerting with programmed response capability for its Unified Security Monitoring Suite
Tenable Network Security, Inc., the leader in Unified Security Monitoring and creator of the award-winning Nessus® vulnerability scanner, today announces the release of Tenable’s Log Correlation Engine 3.4 for general availability. With this release, Tenable now offers enterprise customers file integrity monitoring, historic log processing and event alerting with programmed response capabilities in one fully integrated product offering.
File Integrity Monitoring
This latest version of the Log Correlation Engine allows enterprises to deploy Unix and Windows Log Correlation Engine file monitoring agents to monitor files or directories for a variety of changes such as file modifications, moves, adds and deletes and more. This is a very effective way to monitor and record activity on enterprise desktops and servers, especially when combined with process accounting on Unix systems or program auditing on Windows systems.
Historic Log Processing
Tenable’s Log Correlation Engine version 3.4 also supports the ability to import older logs. This requires the end user to move the files to the Log Correlation Engine where the logs can be imported to the compressed archive of all logs and be normalized.
Event Alerting and Programmed Responses
Finally, Tenable’s Log Correlation Engine can now be programmed to respond to alerts by sending emails, syslogs or performing other actions based on combinations of events. This feature has many possibilities to customize any response to any set of events such as firewall reconfigurations, invoking custom tools and more.
“With this release of the Log Correlation Engine, Tenable further extends its powerful log and event management solution with the capability to monitor files for changes, process historic logs and provide automatic notifications which is in high demand by CIOs for insight on their networks,” says Ron Gula, CEO of Tenable Network Security.
