LogLogic Announces Security Event Manager v3.3

LogLogic®, the security and log management leader, today announced the general availability of LogLogic Security Event Manager v3.3. The solution streamlines the analysis of log data throughout the enterprise and provides deep insights into data, simplifying security event management processes, improving security and reducing time to resolution.

The latest version of LogLogic Security Event Manager features three new advancements: the first Incident Case API supporting the Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF) standard, Correlation Engine enhancement, and new log collection policies.

LogLogic’s new Incident Case API enhances communications with third-party applications, such as trouble ticket systems, using the industry standard Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF). The Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF), issued from RFC5070 is the new commonly accepted standard for incident description. Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERT) can now, for the first time, manage and share all incidents in a common format, from security event management systems to helpdesk systems. LogLogic is the first company to support the IODEF.

“The open IODEF format allows us an integrated incident supervision through all our monitoring systems. Issued from our collaboration with LogLogic, the new Security Event Manager v3.3 natively supports the IODEF format and is then easily integrated into our security cockpit by our SOC team,” said Patrick Radja, from the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS), a LogLogic customer and global leader in aerospace, defense and related services with over € 43.3 billion in revenues and over 118,000 employees.

“LogLogic is committed to providing our customers with easy-to-use and easy-to-integrate solutions that meet and exceed their security and compliance goals,” said Dominique Levin, EVP of Marketing and Strategy at LogLogic. “We have upgraded Security Event Manager v3.3 to support the latest open industry standards, as well as to enhance the management controls and usability of the product.”

The Correlation Engine enhancement to Security Event Manager v3.3 allows users to instantly and easily see, with a single correlation rule, when accounts are being hijacked or shared, while other security event management products require several disparate rules. Having a single correlation rule to detect common threats greatly simplifies product administration and reduces the chance of human error. In addition to the 60 existing correlation rules of this type, version 3.3 adds single correlation rules to detect the following common threats:

-User account sharing
-User account hijacking
-Distributed DOS
-Distributed Port scan

To further simplify deployment, LogLogic Security Event Manager v3.3 introduces pre-built, high-level collection policies and filtering rules. Companies can decide to collect all, none or only particular raw logs. Instead of building such collection and filtering rules from scratch, as is required with other security event management solutions, with LogLogic Security Event Manager v3.3 customers can determine the organization’s level of risk and select from one of several pre-built recommended collection and filtering policies. The default settings are pre-configured for regulatory compliance with all major standards, including PCI DSS, SOX, and HIPAA.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
