Trustwave has announced new software that helps businesses better defend against the onslaught of security threats putting their confidential data and operations at risk – including advanced persistent threats, targeted malware and other forms of cybercrime – while improving day-to-day intelligence, visibility and management.
The new security information and event management (SIEM) software, Trustwave SIEM Enterprise, melds advanced data correlation and threat intelligence, typically available only in complex SIEM products, with the pre-configured rule- and role-based controls and reporting that security analysts need for proactive decision-making and efficient management of daily operations.
Trustwave SIEM Enterprise also includes extensive third-party device support, hundreds of pre-packaged security and compliance reports, advanced threat correlation and intelligence feeds, and “big data” processing power.
“Today’s security professionals are demanding more value and manageability out of SIEM,” says Leo Cole, GM of Security Solutions at Trustwave.
“They need to advance from traditional log management to more sophisticated threat correlation, improved security intelligence and sustainable risk management, without the deployment and management complexity that often turns traditional SIEM tools into ‘shelf-ware’.
“Trustwave SIEM Enterprise gives security analysts the power to do what they’ve wanted to do with SIEM but couldn’t before due to complexity and limited resources.”
According to the 2013 Trustwave Global Security Report, businesses took 210 days on average to detect an intrusion, while most victims relied on third parties, such as customers, law enforcement or regulatory bodies, to notify them a breach had occurred.
SIEM technologies can assist businesses with preventing data breaches and fraud by helping them more proactively “see” and prepare for evolving threats, as well as minimise impact through better response and mitigation.
SIEM can deliver improved visibility into known and unknown external threats such as malware and advanced persistent threats, as well as internal threats such as application flaws or insecure administrator or user practices. SIEM allows businesses to collect, analyse, and assess security and non-security events for rapid identification, prioritisation and response.
Trustwave SIEM solutions have helped businesses of all sizes protect their environment as part of both organisational compliance and defence-in-depth security strategies. Trustwave offers a variety of SIEM deployment options including software, managed security services and appliances.
Trustwave SIEM Enterprise is currently available.
