Providing security and event monitoring with response and reporting capabilities, Sentinel has been fully integrated with Novell’s platforms, including SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server, and identity management solutions. In addition, Sentinel from Novell is now offered in additional languages including German, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese - opening up new markets across Europe and around the world. Now, customers can easily streamline previously labour-intensive and error-prone processes and build a more rigorous, predictable security and compliance monitoring program.
By combining the security information and event management (SIEM) and identity and access management (IAM) functionality of two key Novell product lines, customers can now manage their compliance and security risks using a single, integrated audit infrastructure.
Acquired with e-Security in April 2006, Sentinel from Novell integrates and monitors information and events from across an organization’s networked infrastructure, including data from identity and access management products and third-party systems and devices such as firewalls, routers, anti-virus, asset discovery/inventory, configuration management, intrusion detection systems, mainframes, network devices, vulnerability scanners, load balancers and others. By incorporating information from across the entire network, customers can benefit from a comprehensive, real-time view of activities associated with systems, devices and people, enabling them to respond to threats more effectively and document the effectiveness of their IT controls.
Reed Harrison, CTO of Novell compliance solutions, said, "When Novell acquired e-Security and included Sentinel into its security and identity management product portfolio, we committed to delivering a fully integrated version by the end of summer. We’ve accomplished that goal - giving our customers a way to more easily incorporate Sentinel’s real-time event monitoring capabilities with Novell’s identity and access management solutions. We’ve also added additional language support to help meet the security and compliance needs of our global customers." [August 9, 2006]
