McAfee has released Real Time for ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software that lets enterprises gather up information about any computer for real-time analysis during investigations of security incidents.

The new software connects to McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, Vulnerability Manager and the company's Network Security Platform to provide unified and rapid-response security management. In addition, integration with Enterprise Security Manager provides Real Time for ePO with automated incident response capability. It is available now through McAfee resellers.

Arista Launches Data Analyzer

Arista Networks has launched the Arista Data Analyzer (DANZ) as a new feature set in its Extensible Operating System (EOS) software. DANZ is a TAP aggregation system for its Arista 7150-series switches. The DANZ feature set is designed to capture network traffic in real time without affecting switch performance. The company claims it can "filter, modify and timestamp each individual packet at line rate in hardware at nanosecond accuracy."

Zscaler Unveils Analytics for Cloud Platform

Zscaler has added new analytics features to its Security Cloud to provide enterprises with what it calls "big visibility" into employee behavior on the Web, e-mail and mobile. The new capabilities help security administrators track threats, user productivity and compliance violations via customizable dashboards and reports. The analytics features leverage transactions across the Zscaler Security Cloud network.

New Zscaler Security Cloud features include role-based access control; advanced report creation using an API layer so customers and partners can back up and duplicate reports; simplified automatic storage of logs via Nanolog; and cross-platform, device and location visibility--users can move between different platforms while still pulling data from Zscaler Security Cloud.

Anturis IT Infrastructure Monitoring Available in Beta

Anturis' beta release of its IT infrastructure monitoring and troubleshooting tool is available now and is free for a limited time. Anturis offers SaaS-based IT monitoring for internal infrastructure, including hardware (such as servers and network devices) and software (such as OSs and applications).

A local agent that runs on the customer premises collects data and sends it to the Anturis data center. Users access the data via a Web console.

Analysis features include the ability to correlate data from different areas of the infrastructure to generate meaningful alerts and recommend action. The beta is open to a limited number of users and is free for six months.
