Insightix Adds Real-Time Situational Awareness For SIEM

Company announces integrated support for the Common Event Format, enabling SIEM solutions to correlate event and log data with the actual assets for which incidents are reported
Ra'anana, Israel (April 6, 2009) - Insightix, an innovator of real-time network security intelligence and control solutions, today announced it has integrated support for the Common Event Format (CEF) with its Business Security Assurance (BSA) solution suite.

Through its support of CEF, Insightix BSA can now integrate with Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions. The network, device, and user intelligence information provided by Insightix BSA enables SIEM solutions to correlate event and log data with the actual assets for which incidents are reported. As a result, the number of incidents that may need further processing can automatically be reduced to a minimum.

"Our ability to provide the information that allows the correlation of event data indexed by IP addresses with the device for which the event was reported and with the user identity of the actual user that is either causing or impacted by the event is one of our key capabilities with the integration with SIEM solutions", said Ofir Arkin Founder and CTO of Insightix. "The information enables a SIEM solution to support multiple use cases related to incident response".

"Insightix is providing another significant added value to an already impressive unique offering", said Thomas Hruby, CEO of sysob IT distribution, an Insightix distributor in Germany and Austria. "Some of our Insightix customers had already integrated Insightix BSA with their SIEM solutions. The information had allowed them to easily identify additional sources of event and log data information contributing to the completeness of deployment of their SIEM solution. We have identified a significant cost savings for our customers that is associated with the effect the information Insightix is providing has on the results products by the SIEM".
