ArcSight beefs up security range

New products announced before HP deal completed

Security and compliance company ArcSight, which has been the subject of a takeover bid by HP, has upgraded its Enterprise Threat and Risk Management (ETRM) platform. The new version will include beefed-up ESM, the core analysis engine at the heart of the platform.

ArcSight ESM 5.0 will include a host of new features including a tool for analysis user behaviour to assess risk, a collection of industry-specific field sets so that companies can customise applications for their particular industries and a web services API to help with integration with business intelligence and analysis tools.

The company has also added new features to its log storage product, Logger, and enhanced IdentityView, its compliance and user identity tool. IdentityView 2.0 will detect shared account usage, role-based access violations and unauthorsed user activity

The company has concentrated very much on improving the way that companies can monitor who's using their networks. "Organisations can no longer simply look for external attacks as the only threat," said Tom Reilly, president and CEO of ArcSight. "With the number of cyberthreats and attacks on the rise, organisations are learning that a security approach must be multi-dimensional, taking into account all data within an organisation, who has access to it and what they are doing at all times. With the new capabilities provided with our ETRM platform, ArcSight provides a single solution to monitor your risk related data across and beyond the enterprise."

The new enhancements to Logger will include the ability to create reports against both structured and unstructured data, as well as unified search across data types. Logger 5.0 will also introduce a simplified search language for users. The new version also includes a variety of other new features including application build-error tracking; failed login and CPU utilisation analysis and application runtime stack trace reporting.

Last week HP announced that it was acquiring ArcSight and would use the technology to develop a new breed of security products, where security is more closely integrated with other HP products. However, according to an HP spokeswoman, until the deal is concluded, ArcSight and HP will continue to run as separate companies.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
