Develop to Sentinel – The beta release for developers


June 18, 2009 10:31 am





In today’s environment there are ever-increasing demands on businesses to monitor and track so much of their network activity that tools such as Novell Sentinel have become an absolute necessity for managing a enterprise. The beta release of the Sentinel SDK provides developers with the tools they need to build plug-ins that extend the basic functionality of Sentinel and allow customization to fit the business’s specific requirements. The beta SDK also supports development of plug-ins for Novell Identity Audit. Novell Sentinel is complete Security Information and Event Management product, while Identity Audit provides a more limited event collection solution.
