CyberGuard, a provider of security solutions for information networks in Global 2000 enterprises, has launched announced the latest enhancements to its powerful Webwasher CSM Suite.
The enhancements allow corporations to more effectively report on web and e-mail traffic, detailing security status and policy compliance across multiple time zones.
More and more large businesses are geographically dispersed, yet try to reduce operating costs by centrally managing core IT security functions, such as access control, gateway security and policy compliance in a datacentre.
CyberGuard claims that Webwasher will allow companies to report on a wide variety of security gateway devices such as firewalls, network appliance, net cache products, content engines and others.
Content Reporter’s unique ability to automatically detect, collect and process log files makes it an invaluable tool for even very large organizations.
Pat Clawson, CEO of CyberGuard, said, “One significant challenge in the area of security and compliance reporting is the plethora of data that is generated by traffic monitoring applications. Data spanning multiple time zones is a particular headache from a reporting perspective. Webwasher Content Reporter Version 4.6 [gives] the system administrator full control over how these data are treated from a time zone perspective,” continued Clawson.
This ability to “normalise” time zone information makes the process of analysing and reporting on dozens of gigabytes of global data far easier for system administrators in centralised datacentres.
