PLEASANTON, Calif. - September 4, 2013 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced key enhancements to its firewall security and configuration management software, Firewall Analyzer, and to EventLog Analyzer, its log management and IT compliance software for security information and event management (SIEM). Now, Firewall Analyzer provides security policy management for Cisco and FortiNet firewalls as well as in-depth reporting on used and unused firewall policies and policy objects. EventLog Analyzer can now manage event logs from Amazon Web Server Windows instances and collect audit logs generated by AS/400 and MS SQL systems. Together, the products’ upgrades help businesses bolster their IT security and compliance.

Companies defending against cyber-attacks are finding it critical to analyze traffic patterns of their firewalls’ most used and unused policies. Unused policies, in particular, can leave the network vulnerable to a brute force attack. Meanwhile, a growing number of IT organizations are expanding beyond a single premise to include co-location facilities as well as public cloud services. In all cases, IT teams are challenged to defend against increasingly sophisticated cyber threats and to maintain compliance with internal security policies and regulatory directives such as PCI DSS, FISMA, SOX and HIPAA.

Fortifications to Firewall Analyzer

"To ensure a secure corporate network, network admins must plug all the possible security holes and monitor the traffic patterns in real time to spot unintended network traffic,” said Pravin Kumar, product manager at ManageEngine “With this release of Firewall Analyzer, our customers can analyze firewall policies and rules, pinpoint security flaws in their network and track traffic information visually using a geo-location map view."

Highlights of the latest release of Firewall Analyzer include:

  • Real-time reports that provide in-depth information on policies governing allowed and denied traffic, inbound and outbound traffic and more for Cisco and FortiNet firewalls.
  • Intuitive geo-location map views that allow network admins to select a particular device and discover country-based security and traffic information, instantaneously.
  • Real-time, graphical reports on active VPN sessions and connected user information, including the number of active connections, user names, VPN start times and source IP addresses. Report details are available on a daily, weekly, monthly and semi-annual basis.

Enhancements to EventLog Analyzer

"Multi-site IT infrastructure and cloud adoption are commonplace for our customers these days,” said Chenthil Kumaran, product manager at ManageEngine. “By supporting event log management of Amazon Web Server instances, EventLog Analyzer helps IT organizations centralize log management and thwart security breaches in real time. And ease of use has been improved thanks to a drag-and-drop alert builder and tags for search queries."

Highlights of EventLog Analyzer include:

  • Agent-based Amazon Web Server Windows instances event log monitoring
  • Audit log collection from AS/400 and MS SQL systems in addition to the existing job logs and error logs, respectively
  • Support for tagging complex search queries to help perform searches or build alert profiles
  • Improved ease of use for building complex multifaceted alert profiles via intuitive, drag-and-drop user interface
  • Enhanced file integrity monitoring in dashboards, alerts and reports modules
