Organizations have invested millions in their security and compliance management programs. Unfortunately, many still don’t have the ability to ensure their systems are secure from breach and compliant with legal mandates. Duplicate compliance controls, security data sitting in dormant log files, and lack of an integrated security and compliance management strategy result in people manually updating spreadsheets that are often out of date before the final audit report even is printed.
Today we announced a comprehensive log management solution that expands the functionality offered in Novell’s security information and event management solutions. Novell Sentinel Log Manager simplifies fulfillment of audit requirements and improves security by streamlining the management of ever-increasing volumes of raw event data used for risk investigations and compliance reporting.
Randy Hardin, lead systems engineer at University of Dayton I.T., was part the beta test group for Sentinel Log Manager. A long time Novell customer, Hardin appreciates the interoperability capabilities Novell delivers. Challenged with finding an efficient way to demonstrate PCI DSS compliance, Hardin is looking to Novell Sentinel solutions to connect the university’s wide array of systems in order to collect data in real-time that can easily be searched and validated so he can report with confidence that the university is compliant at all times.
