The first line of defense to mitigate IP-based attacks - including the phishing attacks, malware threats, and outbound traffic to bonnet command and control servers - involves identifying the malicious IP sources and then blocking them. Hackers use a completely new and benign IP to inject malicious content into the network to avoid detection. Consequently, security solutions need to continuously update their global malicious IP databases to keep organizations safe.

"Deploying traditional security solutions, such as network firewalls, antivirus and malware detection systems, will not be effective for unknown threat attacks. Manually configuring firewalls and other network devices to include the malicious IP address is a daunting task that requires frequent updates," said Manikandan Thangaraj, product manager, IT security solutions, at ManageEngine. "To ensure safety against IP threats, enterprises should adopt a technique or tool that detects and updates blacklisted IP addresses in real time and provides in-depth visibility on IP-based threats to create effective security policies. The latest version of EventLog Analyzer offers all these capabilities."

Enhanced Threat Intelligence and Improved Usability

The latest version of EventLog Analyzer includes a global IP threat database that has approximately 600 million blacklisted IP addresses sourced from the top and trusted open source sites.

The latest version of the solution does the following:

Real-time blocking of malicious IP addresses eliminates the need for IT teams to perform additional inspection on intrusions, exploits, malware, traffic handling, and analysis. In turn, EventLog Analyzer improves threat-handling efficiency and reduces the time to mitigate IP-based threats.

Pricing and Availability

EventLog Analyzer version 11.2 is immediately available for download at https://www.manageengine.com/products/eventlog/download.html. The solution is licensed based on the number of log sources monitored. The base pack of EventLog Analyzer that monitors 10 log sources is available for $495.
