Check point eventia enhancements provide easier real-time forensic investigations
Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced that Eventia™ Suite - a comprehensive security information and event management (SIEM) solution – provides tighter integration with SmartCenter™ and Provider-1®. This release demonstrates Check Point’s commitment and vision to provide enterprise customers with a unified security architecture as well as simplified security event management. The Eventia Suite enables Eventia Analyzer™ customers to perform more in-depth forensic investigation with expanded reporting capabilities.The dynamic update feature allows customers to add new device support and new security events for Eventia Analyzer, as well as run new reports for Eventia™ Reporter, between software revisions, ensuring minimal disruption to their services. Data overload and compliance are two pain points for enterprises across the globe, and security information and event management (SIEM) solutions, such as Eventia Suite, help relieve the burden placed on IT administrators by analysing raw log data from multiple security devices across the network while automatically prioritising the data for immediate action. This integrated approach saves thousands of man hours in scrolling through logs and analysis and reduces the amount of time spent on log analysis by 80 percent within the first few days.
“Today many companies have infrastructures in place in which their layered architecture does not integrate all the security devices and management systems they have deployed,” said Scott McKinnel, Country Manager Australia and New Zealand, Check Point Software Technologies. “The goal for our customers is to take a proactive and simplified approach when it comes to security management. Eventia Suite frees up the IT manager’s time to focus on threats that pose the greatest risk, allowing for high cost and resource savings. With seamless integration of devices and management systems, Eventia Suite gives customers with complex security environments the flexibility of centralised global analysis and reporting for their entire network.”Eventia Suite, comprised of Eventia Analyzer and Eventia Reporter, is a SIEM solution designed to help IT security departments reduce the cost and complexity of security log analysis and reporting. Eventia Analyzer provides centralised, real-time correlation of log data from Check Point products, as well as third-party network and security devices – automatically prioritising security events for decisive intelligent action. Eventia Reporter’s centralized reporting system provides consistent presentation of data from desktop to perimeter security, increasing visibility into security posture across the enterprise. Customers should consider deploying the Eventia Suite as part of their network security strategy for the following reasons:
- Simplified threat analysis. Automatically filters out noise so administrators do not have to pour through countless logs from disparate sources. Provides a centralised, integrated solution for normalising and correlating data, storing it, and producing easy-to-read reports to help administrators quickly identify security threats or perform forensic investigations.
- Seamless integration. Quick deployment with predefined security events and reports and native support for all Check Point products enables enterprises to easily integrate these solutions into their existing security infrastructure. Eventia Analyzer also supports third party network and security devices for heterogeneous environments.
- Scalable for the enterprise. Tight integration with Check Point’s SmartCenter and Provider-1, with superior performance and scalability to address the unique needs of enterprises with complex security environments.
