HOUSTON & SALT LAKE CITY, Mar 23, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Blue Lance announced today the availability of LT Auditor+ for Syslogs(TM), which allows customers to audit and monitor security event logs across Linux and Unix servers, network communication devices, firewall appliances and any application capable of generating syslog messages. This ensures accountability and helps detect intrusive activity across the enterprise.
LT Auditor+ for Syslogs provides powerful and customized content-based message processing and reporting capabilities to monitor an array of platforms, including Linux and Unix in an agent-less manner. This low-cost, highly flexible monitoring solution takes complex syslog messages and converts them into more useful security intelligence using powerful filtering capabilities. The product's real-time alerting feature issues notifications of exceptional events to security administrators so they can be documented and investigated.
"Novell has made a commitment as a company to bring a secure, enterprise infrastructure to Linux," said Ed Anderson, vice president of marketing for Novell's Nterprise Platform Services group. "With partners like Blue Lance developing powerful new cross-platform security solutions, customers will be able to use secure, scalable and reliable Novell services on the operating system and hardware platform of their choice."
This new offering tracks failed log-ins across different Linux systems and can determine if a programmatic attack is in progress, sending real-time notifications to incident responders. Fully integrated with Blue Lance's powerful SQL-based report generator, LT Auditor+ for Syslogs gives users the ability to define and run reports based on the content within the syslog messages and consolidate the audit data to a centralized database to simplify historical analysis and cross-platform reporting.

This product is designed to give our customers maximum flexibility and will require no installation of software on monitored servers and devices, thereby allowing security-event monitoring to be extended quickly and efficiently to syslog-enabled platforms."
