Today’s enterprises face unprecedented security threats. As organizations embrace new technologies, newer threats continue to proliferate. Mobile devices, cloud computing and virtualization have each made enterprise security all the more complex and difficult and never more essential.
When you dig deep into security incidents such as identity thefts, breaches, DoS attacks and other security breaches, you typically discover that basic security measures were carelessly handled. And the damage goes beyond the jeopardy to IT infrastructure and corporation information -- with today’s social networks, bad news travels faster, to threaten your business and perhaps even taint your brand name forever.
Combating sophisticated cyber threats mandates a multi-pronged strategy incorporating a complex set activities including:
- Deploying security devices
- Enforcing security policies
- Controlling access to resources
- Monitoring events, analyzing logs
- Detecting vulnerabilities
- Managing patches
- Tracking changes
- Ensuring compliance
- Monitoring traffic
What’s more while defining security measures is fundamental, ensuring compliance to numerous IT regulations has become an integral facet of enterprise security.
ManageEngine has a range of affordable Enterprise Security Management Software Solutions that help you build a secure fortress enabling you to stay secure, ensure business continuity and enhance productivity.
The Watch Towers - EventLog Analyzer & Firewall Analyzer
Monitor, analyze log data and alert on internal, external security threats
Watch Towers in the fortress help in observing the happenings around and protect from potential threats. In enterprises, keeping a watchful eye over the eventlog, application log and trails from perimeter security devices is essential to safeguard the organization from evolving internal and external threats and optimize performance. This mandates:
- Automatically collecting, analyzing, reporting, alerting and archiving event log from distributed Windows hosts, Syslog from Unix hosts and devices & Application log from servers and databases
- Monitoring, analyzing and reporting on logs from firewalls and other perimeter security devices
- Troubleshooting network problems and optimize bandwidth usage & performance
- Complete visibility on internal & external security threats
- Meeting regulatory audit and compliance requirements for SOX, PCI, FISMA, and others
ADAudit Plus & Exchange Reporter Plus
Active Directory, Exchange Servers and File Servers are like the treasuries of a kingdom. Monitoring user access to this wealth of data and auditing changes occurring in them are the two must-reach milestones on the road to IT compliance and security.
- Active Directory Change Auditing: Get information about "who" made "what" change in Active Directory, "when" and from "where"
- Identity & Access Intelligence: Gain action-oriented knowledge about identity and access in your organization, and comfortably make crucial business decisions.
- User Access & Activity Monitoring: Monitor what files users access and what operations they perform on them.
- Exchange Server Auditing: Learn about changes, such as mailbox permission changes, effected by users in an Exchange server. Keep the mailbox settings and the server secure.
- Exchange Server Intelligence: Right from email traffic stats to mailbox size and content reports, get every data needed to secure Exchange servers and fine-tune their performance.
Exchange and Active Directory log data are extremely raw, and requires an intelligent collation and presentation in a format that is conducive to decision-making. These two tools provide you just that - instantly.
ADManager Plus & ADSelfService Plus
Just like the prosperity and safety of a kingdom depends on its monarch and his administrative skills, an organization’s operational efficiency and distinction in demonstrating IT compliance are dependent on how well the organization’s IT manages its user identities and accesses.
ADManager Plus is a web-based tool that offers IAM solutions which help (Windows-based) organizations in their IT compliance objectives. It offers:
- IAM Policy Implementers: Tools such as provisioning templates, workflow engine, etc., help you to practically implement the organization’s IT policies/procedures for user management.
- Streamlined User Management Tools: Features including template-based provisioning or modification, bulk AD management, off-the-shelf AD management, etc. make way for error-free AD content management, which is the first step towards being IT regulatory compliant.
- Active Directory Automation: Regular and crucial IAM tasks in Active Directory and Exchange, which have direct impact on IT compliance -- including inactive user management, or user provisioning, or termination procedures -- can be automated and standardized.
- Identity & Access Knowledge: Through prepackaged Active Directory reports, you can get clear picture about all the Active Directory objects (including the NTFS permissions).
- Business-oriented Delegation: Through workflow and smart delegation, ADManager Plus seals the gap between business processes and IT operations, which is a very crucial step in IT compliance and security. It enables the key decision-makers, who possess business knowledge, to participate in or entirely carry out IAM tasks, even though they do not have the required technical know-how for IAM operations.
Additionally, ManageEngine offers a tool – ADSelfService Plus – entirely dedicated to IAM issues that enterprises can resolve by awarding IT self-service to end-users. ADSelfService Plus offers:
- Self-service password management
- Password (or Account) expiry notifier
- Password synchronizer
- Self-service profile/directory updater
- Directory search
A Secret Chamber - Password Manager Pro
Protect the keys to your kingdom
After building the fortress, the keys to your kingdom need to be protected. A strong perimeter just protects you from external attacks. But, to guard yourself from malicious insiders, you need a secure, centralized ‘secret chamber’ for safe upkeep of the keys and control over privileged access to a select few. In enterprises, you need to:
- Securely store, manage and control access to shared sensitive information such as passwords, documents and digital identities
- Eliminate password fatigue and security lapses
- Improve IT productivity many times by automating frequent password changes required in critical systems
- Establish preventive & detective security controls through approval workflows & real–time alerts on password access
- Meet security audits and regulatory compliances such as SOX, HIPAA and PCI
The Citadel - DeviceExpert
Establish a centralized authority for network device configurations
In the fortress, the citadel is the seat of the centralized authority and is the strongest component. In enterprises, network devices are the crucial components. Any unauthorized configuration change could wreak havoc on the network. To secure device configurations, you need to
- Automate backup of configurations of switches, routers, firewalls & other devices
- Track configuration changes in real–time & generate notifications
- Prevent unauthorized configuration changes
- Control access to configurations & enforce role–based restrictions for configuration upload
- Check configurations for compliance to policies & standards
- Get complete record of ‘who’, ‘what’ and ‘when’ of device configuration changes
- Automate the entire life–cycle of device configuration tasks
The Operational Command Center - DesktopCentral
Constitute centralized control for servers & desktops
In the fortress, day–to–day operations are controlled from the command center. Likewise, in enterprises, servers and desktops constitute the nerve centre of routine operations. Securely managing them from a centralized location is a crucial task, which requires you to:
- Automate the desktop management routines of enterprises to standardize and secure their Windows network
- Protect desktops from wide range of threats
- Quickly troubleshoot of day–to–day issues
- Generate comprehensive reports to audit IT assets
