Prism Offers Free Log Search

COLUMBIA, Md. -- Prism Microsystems, providers of comprehensive Security Information and Event Log Management (SIEM) technology, today announced the availability of EventTracker PULSE, a smart search engine for log data that provides system administrators with valuable, network-wide insight for optimizing IT performance, improving availability and accelerating forensic investigations.

Available immediately as a free software download from http://pulse.prismmicrosys.com, EventTracker PULSE automates the real-time collection and long term archival of all log data from Windows (servers and workstations), Unix/Linux, Cisco devices, applications and any syslog source. A Google-like interface provides fast and easy searching across hundreds of gigabytes of data, allowing users to pinpoint critical data in a matter of seconds. The benefits of Log Search are limitless for operations and security. For instance, users can quickly identify root cause of service degradations or IT failures for remediation, or in the event of an internal breach, pinpoint who did what and when and plug security holes.

Logs offer the potential to provide deep understanding on most aspects of IT, however, manually extracting actionable intelligence from voluminous, distributed and cryptic log data is impossible without system specific technical knowledge and large amounts of time to spare,” said Steve Lafferty, VP of Marketing at Prism Microsystems. “EventTracker PULSE puts this information right into the hands of system administrators and empowers them to easily investigate activity across the IT infrastructure. The value in terms of time and cost savings alone is tremendous.”
