Automated Log Management Used to Improve Security, Performance, Operational Efficiency, and Compliance

PALO ALTO, CA–(Marketwire – May 9, 2012) – TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced results from a survey of IT professionals it sponsored titled “Sorting Through the Noise: SANS Eighth Annual 2012 Log and Event Management Survey.” The survey reveals that one of the most important and challenging issues that organizations deal with is separating normal log data from actionable events in order to detect, track and prevent suspicious behavior.

“Increasingly sophisticated cyber-attacks and growing mounds of data are placing unprecedented pressure on organizations. Most find it difficult to keep up with, and most importantly prevent, the millions of security incidents across global networks,” said Raj Verma, vice president, Worldwide Marketing, TIBCO. “This survey confirms that enterprises need advanced log intelligence solutions that allow them to better integrate, correlate and analyze system data in order to capture the right data at the right time so that they can make more effective decisions to improve security and compliance. We are delighted to provide organizations with an industry-leading solution to meet these needs.”

According to the survey among IT professionals, many organizations can’t identify attackers because of insufficient data. This reflects the following top challenges and focus areas for log data identified by participants:

  • Detect and track suspicious network behavior (82%)
  • Support forensic analysis and correlation (65%)
  • Prevent incidents (58%)
  • Detect Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) (54%)

Respondents also said they are using log management solutions to do more than just strengthen security. Of the respondents, 55 percent said log management helps them to achieve regulatory compliance, and 24 to 30 percent of respondents said they are collecting logs for operational and business improvements, including IT operations and support, application and system performance and monitoring service levels and other lines of business.
