Review: Tenable Security Center

Review: Tenable Security Center

The Tenable Security Center has massive capability wrapped in a single, easy-to-navigate interface. While the overall use of the application is fairly intuitive, once users explore more deeply, they may find that it becomes complex and intricate. This allows for great flexibility, but also requires some time of using the product and learning how to maximize its capability for the specific environment.

Review: TriGeo SIM

Review: TriGeo SIM

From the time it is plugged in, all the way through day-to-day management, TriGeo SIM is simple to use. The appliance comes with many rule sets already preconfigured for most security situations, while setting rules for specific environments is made easy by the Rule Builder. This tool uses different modules with rule parts that you just drag and drop into the right place and the rule is created. Filters also are easy to configure using the same process. The main console interface is simple and intuitive to navigate as well.

Review: Activeworx Security Center

We found this product required some time to work with and to learn about its massive capability. Set-up overall was fairly simple, but the user interface is a little clumsy in the beginning. The Security Center desktop is quite overwhelming at first, with multiple view selections, tabs and tree menus. But once we started working with the interface, we found it quite efficient.

Review: SEM3210

High Tower pre-configures all the equipment before it is shipped to the end-user, so when the appliance arrives there are just a few simple steps to complete before it is online and ready to go. We found this product to be quite simple to use, thanks to the intuitive user interface that includes an easy-to-read dashboard-type console. We were impressed by the clean look of all parts of the console. This product displays a lot of vital information in one place in a clear manner.

Review: NetIQ Security Manager

Review: NetIQ Security Manager

In our experience, the implementation of this product is no walk in the park. The Security Manager is a small part of a much larger complete security solution by NetIQ. Deployment of this product is massive, with dozens of pre-install steps to be completed on each of the different machines necessary for full deployment. This includes configuration of a database server, a log database computer and a central computer.

Review: Enterprise Security Analyzer

Review: Enterprise Security Analyzer

Although this program is simple to use, we found it took a little time to work with set-up and configuration. Set-up is guided by the main set-up wizard, which guides the user through installation and a bit of initial configuration. Once the main install is completed, there are follow-up steps of creating SSL certificates for IIS and possibly many other loose ends, depending on the environment.

Using events-per-second as a factor in selecting SEM tools

Using events-per-second as a factor in selecting SEM tools

Events Per Second, or EPS, as it is commonly referred to in the world of network security, is a measurement that is used to convey how fast a network generates data from its security devices (firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), servers, routers, etc.), and/or how fast an SEM product can correlate data from those devices. A savvy buyer will match the EPS his network is generating to those that can be accommodated by the SEM tool that he is purchasing.
