Solutionary ActiveGuard 4 Surpasses Trillionth Log
OMAHA, Neb., April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Solutionary, the leading pure-play managed security services provider (MSSP), today announced that ActiveGuard® 4 surpassed the milestone of processing one trillion log lines. The patented ActiveGuard security and compliance platform processes billions of log lines each day to identify and respond to security events.
As enterprise organizations are being forced to monitor more devices and device types due to compliance requirements and security needs, they are struggling with what to do with all of the logs they generate and how to glean useful intelligence from that log data. With more data and increasingly complex environments, enterprises require more of a qualitative versus quantitative approach to security. Solutionary solves this by parsing the logs, understanding what each log means and applying rules to those logs to enrich them and add context. The result is Solutionary’s ability to recognize patterns and behaviors in order to identify threats and anomalous activity in client environments, which then in turn enhances the clients’ security posture.
The already voluminous amounts of log data currently being captured by most enterprises are expected to increase over time. Enterprises are not only monitoring security and network devices; they are also monitoring logs from applications, databases, endpoints and hosts. The volume of data produced by these disparate device types requires more scale and better analytics in order to provide intelligence about the information being gathered. The ability to handle big data of this type is a key component of ActiveGuard.
“ActiveGuard was purpose-built from the beginning to process vast quantities of data,” said Mike Hrabik, president and CTO of Solutionary. “While a trillion is a big number, it only exemplifies the challenges faced by enterprise organizations to effectively monitor and analyze threats. As other security vendors struggle with the big data problem, Solutionary is focused on further enhancing the ability of ActiveGuard to process an increasing volume of information.”
The patented ActiveGuard service platform provides powerful cross-correlation and event-handling capabilities to recognize threats and reduce false positives, making security more operationally efficient. ActiveGuard is able to accurately collect and correlate vast amounts of data from virtually any device capable of producing a log file, including applications, databases, endpoints, firewalls and network devices. Solutionary combines the superior event-handling capabilities of ActiveGuard with security intelligence from the Security Engineering Research Team (SERT) and services provided by analysts in its Security Operations Centers (SOCs).
