BOCA RATON, Fla. -- CrossTec Corporation has released version 3.6 of Activeworx Security Center, its security information and event management (SIEM) software solution. The new version includes over 50 new reports and report templates, support for ten additional devices, enhanced windows event log collection and time zone normalization for better enterprise-wide log management. The upgrade builds upon the Activeworx foundation of providing simple ways to comply with federal regulations; analyze and share real-time security data; and efficiently manage and protect networks.
When events are collected by Activeworx, the time zone is now adjusted to GMT. This allows all internal processing within the manager - including the Activeworx Correlation Engine - to base the event on a normalized, common time zone. When events are later stored, they are converted back to the time zone that is assigned to that database. For example, if an asset exists in California and an asset in New York, the user can collect events using the same collector and store events in a common time zone format for later viewing.
A popular feature in Activeworx is its extensive collection of useful compliance reports. The product includes over 200 reports for GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA and PCI. The new version adds another 50 new reports along with new report templates. These new reports display information such as virus information, Systems that have been updated, User accounts locked out, and much more.
