Overview:

Components:

The WhatsUp Log Management Suite comprises of four individual products that can work independently or together as an integrated set of tools.

Event Archiver

Log files generated by different operating systems, applications, routers, switches and other Syslog devices can vary in format and message content and easily grow to large sizes. This is true for Windows based systems too — and collection, normalization, archival and management of log data from its different versions has its challenges. WhatsUp Event Archiver does exactly that — automating the process of collecting, storing, multi-year archiving and back-up of Syslog, Microsoft events or W3C/IIS logs, as well as providing the means for log file cleansing and management over time.

Event Alarm

Potential security events can arise from both inside or outside the network perimeter. Monitoring and identifying patterns of activities from volumes of log data in near real-time needs powerful alert rule configuration and analysis capabilities. WhatsUp Event Alarm continuously monitors collected log data across the Syslog, Microsoft event or W3C/IIS log domains, helps identify potential threat incidents and notifies operations teams via actionable alerts. Event Alarm is a cost-effective way to protect access to key information — employee records, patient or financial information — and enforce your network security policies.

Event Analyst

Log reporting is crucial to set a baseline for network security metrics and compliance achievement across all stakeholders. Yet, with the volume of logs generated, any attempt at manual analysis and reporting is bound to fail. WhatsUp Gold Event Analyst enables automated filtering, correlation, reporting and translation of archived raw log data into actionable intelligence for all key stakeholders: IT managers, security and compliance officers, upper management and even law enforcement officers. It also boasts compliance-ready reports for key initiatives including SOX, HIPAA, FISMA, PCI, MiFID, GLB and others.

Event Rover

Operations teams need to routinely view event log data and when needed, perform forensic analysis to support emergency response to network health and security threats. In either case, sifting through Syslog files to troubleshoot a problem or sorting and viewing chronologically displayed log files in an interface like the Windows Event Viewer is cumbersome and time consuming. WhatsUp Event Rover supports efficient, on-the-fly reviewing and forensic analysis of high volume log data for data mining and routine analysis.


Tools:

Additional log management tools included with WhatsUp Log Management software:

The WhatsUp Log Management Suite includes additional free resources designed to ease the pain of log management for IT engineers, including the Auditing Volume AnalyzerEvent Archiver Importing tool and Log Management/WhatsUp Gold Integration tool.

The best part about these free add-ons? Simple log management is made even simpler with a holistic view into both network management and log management tasks from a single pane of glass if you own WhatsUp Gold

  • Auditing Volume Analyzer tool: Know exactly how much space log data is taking up on your systems -- determine database or flat file storage requirements for archiving logs on your network – key for compliance regulations. In addition, the WhatsUp Auditing Volume Analyzer tool now profiles log growth rates on Microsoft Vista and later operating systems, for an intuitive way to determine the amount of Windows Event log data being generated on a daily and monthly basis.
  • Event Archiver Importing tool: Administrators of distributed networks can consolidate log files over WAN links into a single, central database. In addition, the tool now supports processing custom (in addition to Core 6) Windows Event logs, including archived Syslog files, and WC3/IIS logs.
  • Log Management/WhatsUp Gold Integration tool: The competition makes you toggle between multiple programs if you want insight into both logs and network performance. With the LM/WUG integration tool, add stored procedures to your Log Management Suite SQL database(s) so you can visualize both network performance and stay on top of key enterprise assets from a single pane of glass.

How it works:

Ensure complete accuracy, and save time and effort eliminating manual log file collection tasks. Consolidate log files over WAN links into a single, central database. Automatically manage custom (in addition to Core 6) Windows Event logs, including archived Syslog files, and WC3/IIS logs.

Gain security intelligence

Quickly detect unauthorized activity and security threats.

Track, alert and report on commonly audited event types like access and permission changes to Files, Folders, and Objects. Collect the most common log types such as Syslog, Microsoft event or W3C/IIS log to help you identify potential threat incidents. Protect access to key information like employee records, patient or financial information — and enforce your network security policies.

Reduce risk and liability

Collect, archive, analyze, and report on regulatory compliance mandates imposed by HIPAA, SOX, FISMA, PCI, MiFID, Basel II and others.

Quickly generate compliance-ready reports for these key initiatives and build reports for quick compliance to additional regulations. Know exactly how much space log data is taking up on your systems. Meet key compliance regulations with knowledge of database or flat file storage requirements for archiving logs on your network.

Quickly respond to audits and perform forensic analysis

Be ready for regulatory submissions, auditors, security officers, or management queries with compliance-centric reporting.

Easily convert archived raw log data into actionable intelligence for all key stakeholders, IT managers, security and compliance officers, upper management and even law enforcement officers with automated filtering, correlation, reporting and translation capabilities. Log Management Suite integrates with WhatsUp Gold and is sold as a standalone application.

System Requirements:

  • Processor: Quad-Core 2.4 GHz
  • Memory: 8 GB
  • Storage (installation): 15 GB
  • NIC: 100 Mbps
  • Operating System: Windows Server 2008 R2 (32-bit or 64-bit) or higher

Compliance Regulations:

As an IT professional, government contractor or compliance officer, you are responsible for keeping your business applications and infrastructure up and running as well as ensuring that they are secure and protected. Your senior management depends on you to take the necessary steps to meet and report on regulatory compliance standards like:

  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standards) guidelines - for businesses that are a merchant or provider organization that handles or stores customer credit card data
  • SOX (Sarbanes Oxley) - for US public companies and accounting firms or are becoming part of one through an acquisition or merger
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act) - for financial institutions, mandating a policy and written information security plan be in place a policy to protect the information from foreseeable threats in security and data integrity
  • FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act) - for Federal agencies or contracting organizations that provide services to the Government
  • FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) – for US-based educational institutions to secure access to student records
  • NISPOM (National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual) - for organizations that have access to and work with classified data
  • HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) - for any employer, medical provider and insurance company in the United States, to maintain privacy and security of protected health information
  • Basel II Accord - for banking institutions located outside the United States, laying down broad recommendations on how your management needs to maintain operational oversight of all financial applications, data and reporting
  • MA Privacy Law - for any employer that does business with Massachusetts residents or has employees residing in Massachusetts, to protect and maintain the privacy of their personal information
  • Other examples are:
    • NERC - North American Electric Reliability Corporation
    • CIP - Critical Infrastructure Protection
    • FERC - Federal Energy Regulation Commission

While you know that vital information relating to network security is available in your log files right now, dealing with the volume of data constantly being generated from across your infrastructure is impossible without the right tools.
