Check Point to Release Eventia Suite

The software enhancements will reduce the cost and complexity of security data analysis and reporting, the company says.

Internet security company Check Point Software Technologies announced Dec. 4 plans to release Eventia Suite, a comprehensive security information and event management solution that seeks to allow for more in-depth forensic investigation, by the end of 2006.

Eventia Suite is composed of Eventia Analyzer and Eventia Reporter. It is designed to help IT security departments reduce the cost and work hours of security log analysis and reporting.

Eventia Analyzer provides centralized, real-time correlation of log data from Check Point products, as well as third-party network and security devices, automatically prioritizing security events. Eventia Reporters reporting system provides consistent presentation of data from desktop to perimeter security.

"Today many companies have infrastructures in place in which their layered architecture does not integrate all the security devices and management systems they have deployed," said Dave Burton, director of product marketing for Check Point Software Technologies, in a prepared statement.

"The goal for our customers is to take a proactive and simplified approach when it comes to security management. Eventia Suite frees up the IT managers time to focus on threats that pose the greatest risk, allowing for high cost and resource savings."

Eventia Suite aims to help relieve the burden placed on IT administrators by analyzing raw log data from multiple security devices across the network while automatically prioritizing the data for immediate action.

This integrated approach saves thousands of worker hours in scrolling through logs and analysis and reduces the amount of time spent on log analysis by 80 percent within the first few days, Check Point officials said.

The Eventia Suite lets Eventia Analyzer customers perform more in-depth forensic investigation with expanded reporting capabilities. The dynamic update feature allows customers to add new device support and new security events for Eventia Analyzer, as well as run new reports for Eventia Reporter, between software revisions, ensuring minimal disruption to their services, Check Point officials said.

Eventia Analyzer also provides expanded third-party device support for devices such as Symantec, Tipping Point, NetContiuum, Nortel switches and Sendmail, and Eventia Suites support for Provider-1 will enable Service Providers to offer seamless event management services to their customers, Check Point officials said.

"With seamless integration of devices and management systems, Eventia Suite gives customers with complex security environments the flexibility of centralized global analysis and reporting for their entire network," Burton said.

Pricing will start at $25,000.
