Description from the Publisher
GFI EventsManager is an award-winning events monitoring, management and archiving solution, used by thousands of customers. Competitively priced, it is ideal for SMEs. It supports a wide range of event types such as W3C, Windows events, Syslogs and SNMP traps generated by devices such as firewalls, routers and sensors. Providing support for devices from the top 20 manufacturers in the world as well as custom devices, GFI EventsManager allows administrators to monitor an extended range of hardware products, report on the operational status of each one and collect data for analysis. It depicts employee activity on the network such as changes made to their PCs, files accessed during the day and other related activities. GFI EventsManager also tracks and reports SQL and Oracle server activity such as alteration of DB tables and attempts to access data without privileges.
GFI EventsManager uses advanced event processing and filtering technologies to identify key events out-of-the-box. Advanced event processing rules filter out unwanted/trivial events and generate alerts on key issues. GFI EventsManager provides real-time alerting when critical events arise, suggests remedial actions and, if applicable, triggers corrective actions by automatically launching scripts and executable files. The built-in processing rules provided with the product, and other areas of intelligence present in it, add value to its functionality aspects, because the information is otherwise difficult to find and requires levels of expertise which are not necessarily available to end-users.
GFI EventsManager has been developed to satisfy the increasing demand of events-based legal compliance. Generated events are the primary source which determine level of compliance and identify deficiencies. With GFI EventsManager, events can be processed while leaving the ?raw source? intact, in compliance to event log regulations such as Basel II, PCI Data Security Standard and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
