RandomStorm releases next-generation Log Analysis Platform
June 2013 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
RandomStorm has released its new integrated log analysis; host-based intrusion detection system (HIDS) and file integrity platform, StormAgent.
StormAgent automates protective monitoring of network hosts. At the core of the system, RandomStorm’s Instance, Event, Alert (IEA) algorithm identifies, classifies and stores alerts into IP and time-based Events that are associated with Instances of matched rules.
StormAgent’s graphical and menu-driven management dashboard enables users to quickly drill down into each Instance, based on five thousand pre-defined rules, to view the correlated alerts and access vital information such as the source IP address and the timeline of the event, to help users to assess the severity of security risks.
Together with its alert management functionality, StormAgent provides an enterprise-class HIDS and file integrity management tool that can be configured to monitor critical hosts, identify imminent threats and pinpoint any changes to confidential files in real-time.
Built for SME and enterprise networks, StormAgent is highly scalable and can support diverse, multi-platform networks including Linux™, Apple Macintosh® Microsoft Windows® and IBM iSeries (AS/400) environments. Incorporating a sophisticated asset management tool, StormAgent can be configured to monitor and report on individual or grouped hosts to aid close monitoring of business-critical applications and resources.
