DALLAS – July 30th, 2007 – (BUSINESS WIRE) – The premier provider of Security Risk Management (SRM) solutions for midsize-to-enterprise organizations, today announced it is offering an easier and more economical way for organizations to achieve Payment Card Industry (PCI) and audit compliance while enhancing their networks’ overall security: real-time monitoring and analysis of firewall logs and/or critical application syslogs via the GDG N-2800-G System Information Event Management+.

The N-2800-G, a fully integrated extension of Global DataGuard’s world-class SRM architecture, protects critical network infrastructure on a 24/7 basis, conducting real-time monitoring and analysis of firewall logs and/or critical application syslogs. Employing proprietary automated processes and procedures, it identifies anomalies in log files and alerts GDG security analysts who make recommendations on how to respond to threats. Online reports are available 24/7 to access the results of the analysis.

The N-2800-G integrates with all other GDG products and services. This holistic, integrated approach to security sets Global DataGuard apart from vendors who offer only point products and services that can be complex – and expensive – to purchase and administer.

To help ensure PCI compliance, Global DataGuard employs the N-2800-G as an additional layer to:

  • continuously track and monitor access to network resources and cardholder data so that the cause of any compromise can be determined through system activity logs
  • strengthen access control policies
  • port level blocking or quarantining of malicious traffic
  • integrates natively with Cisco switches and routers and major commercial firewalls

The N-2800-G, which supports the most commercially available firewalls is capable of blocking malicious IP traffic in real-time or on-demand. In addition, the System Information Event Management+ Network Attached Storage (NAS) capability offers a powerful archival storage solution, combining advanced fault tolerant storage capabilities with robust file security to provide cost-effective long-term logfile archival. Operating as a simple shared NT volume, it allows data access in a massive volume, and the setup is simple, fast and advanced networking skills are not required. Reports on basic activity, backup jobs and critical system errors can be emailed to multiple recipients.
