Automated incident response using incident workflows

When it comes to network security, organizations are engaged in a constant cycle of security incident detection, management, and response. A typical organization can encounter hundreds of incidents a day, and new types of attacks are evolving all the time. This makes incident response challenging, as you have to ensure all incidents are addressed while minimizing the damage to your organization. 

Developing a comprehensive incident response system may seem like a challenge, but there's an easy way to tackle it; you can automate incident workflows. ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer offers a complete security package with its vast range of features including advanced incident detection, incident management, and automated incident response using workflows.

Incident workflows in EventLog Analyzer

An incident workflow outlines the sequence of steps to be taken following a security incident. EventLog Analyzer enables you to define and associate incident workflows with security alerts; these workflows are automatically executed when alerts are triggered. By automating standard response measures through these workflows, you save a great deal of time and effort while also minimizing or eliminating potential damage.

Predefined incident workflows

EventLog Analyzer provides multiple built-in workflows for common response steps like disabling compromised computers and locking hacked or malicious users' accounts. To implement these, select the pre-built workflows when setting up security alerts in the product.

Custom workflow builder

You can build custom incident workflows from scratch using EventLog Analyzer's flexible drag-and-drop workflow builder interface. Simply choose the actions from the left menu, specify their settings, and arrange them in the desired order. The intuitive interface makes it easy to build workflows to suit your requirements.

Manage and track workflows

Automated workflows won't be effective if you can't track what happens each time they're executed. EventLog Analyzer tracks workflows with detailed reports of each workflow's execution history. The central workflow management page also allows you to enable or disable workflows, view the number of alerts associated with each workflow, and more.

With EventLog Analyzer's automated incident workflows, you can reduce the demand on your security team to perform mundane response tasks and greatly improve your organization's efficiency in resolving security incidents.

Expedite response to security incidents.

Customer Speaks

  • Credit Union of Denver has been using EventLog Analyzer for more than four years for our internal user activity monitoring. EventLog Analyzer provides great value as a network forensic tool and for regulatory due diligence. This product can rapidly be scaled to meet our dynamic business needs.

  • The best thing, I like about the application, is the well structured GUI and the automated reports. This is a great help for network engineers to monitor all the devices in a single dashboard. The canned reports are a clever piece of work.

    Senior Network Engineer
  • EventLog Analyzer has been a good event log reporting and alerting solution for our information technology needs. It minimizes the amount of time we spent on filtering through event logs and provides almost near real-time notification of administratively defined alerts.

  • Windows Event logs and device Syslogs are a real time synopsis of what is happening on a computer or network. EventLog Analyzer is an economical, functional and easy-to-utilize tool that allows me to know what is going on in the network by pushing alerts and reports, both in real time and scheduled. It is a premium software Intrusion Detection System application.
