LONDON -- GFI, a leading international developer of network security, content security and messaging software, has today launched GFI EventsManager, its next generation solution for centralized event log management and reporting. GFI's latest release delivers insight into all that is happening on the IT infrastructure and ensures maximum network uptime; acting as an early-warning system for all potential hardware and software failures, whilst monitoring and alerting on possible security breaches. GFI EventsManager has also been developed to satisfy the increasing demands of event-log based legal compliance.
Research shows that 44% of companies do not perform event log management, primarily quoting sheer volume of data to manage as well as the cryptic nature of the information contained within them as the main reasons. These challenges often lead to event logs being unmanaged, underutilized and ignored - until disaster strikes. Events constitute an invaluable source of information, answering core questions about security breaches, IT infrastructure health status, legal compliance and forensic investigation.
GFI EventsManager is a results-oriented event log management solution which integrates into any existing IT infrastructure; automatically collecting event data from all network components, normalizing it to a central database and providing meaningful reports on its findings. With continuous 24 hour activity monitoring and alerting, GFI EventsManager empowers the administrator to prevent network disasters through notification of illicit activity or possible hardware and software failures on their network, supplying info such as; which software is being installed/uninstalled, health status of Microsoft Exchange and other servers, which users are accessing sensitive files, login related activity and more.
"GFI EventsManager is an essential tool for monitoring your network," said Andre Muscat, GFI EventsManager Product Manager. "Most administrators are intimidated or unaware of the extensive knowledge available within their event logs. However, with events and logs generated by nearly every IT component, they are the most effective and reliable source of information on network activity."
