New EventTracker 8 Addresses the Detection Deficit in Data Security

Latest Version of EventTracker Offers Advanced Solution for Threatscape 2015 and Beyond

COLUMBIA, MD- Jul 14, 2015- EventTracker, a leading provider of comprehensive SIEM solutions, today announced the general availability of the newest version of its flagship security and compliance offering, EventTracker 8.

Today’s data security landscape is more insecure than ever before. Despite the deployment of an array of security solutions, cyber-attacks too often remain undetected for months, creating massive financial, operational and reputational impact for the breached organizations. Detection systems produce excessive alerts forcing security analysts to spend hours on manual validation to eliminate false positives.

Persistent threats require an equally persistent response. EventTracker 8, an advanced SIEM solution, incorporates purpose-built sensors to continually collect digital forensics data and leverage machine learning to identify lateral movement, possible malware, suspicious network traffic and user behavior analytics. This enables timely incident response.

EventTracker 8 simplifies regulatory standards compliance with a new auditor-ready Top Level Summary artifact. New Knowledge Packs are available in an updated Knowledge Center on the EventTracker website with accompanying Integration Guides, reports, alerts, and dashboards available.

EventTracker 8 also offers a completely refreshed GUI developed to easily visualize data to respond to the modern Threatscape; it is touch ready and has a responsive design to fit form factors from smart phones to tablets to desktops.

Additional features include:
-A new agent for Red Hat Enterprise Linux which includes features such as log forwarding, file/folder change detection, and performance metrics gathering.
-A new integration with ntopng supports flow analysis including NetFlow v5/9 and IPFIX, jFlow and Flow as well as deep packet inspection.
-Updates to the Intrusion Detection System, based on Snort
-Updates to the Vulnerability Assessment System, based on OpenVAS

“The introduction of EventTracker 8 furthers our continued commitment to security and compliance. Together with SIEM Simplified, our services component, we ensure long term success for our clients in identifying and eliminating security vulnerabilities while meeting compliance requirements. We want practitioners to understand that we have developed a SIEM solution to tackle the modern threatscape,” said A.N. Ananth, CEO of EventTracker. “It’s important to recognize that 100% of data breach victims have up-to-date anti-virus and that it regularly takes 200+ days before a breach is detected. Those stats are simply unacceptable. EventTracker 8 expressly fills in this ‘detection deficit.’ We are extremely proud to bring this version to market.”
