AUSTIN, Texas – December 17, 2013 – SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced enhancements to several of its security management solutions, including SolarWinds Log & Event Manager, SolarWinds Firewall Security Manager and SolarWinds Patch Manager. These solutions allow organizations of every size to effectively manage security and compliance.
SolarWinds security solutions are designed to provide powerful automation, ease of management, and rapid time to value with a low cost of ownership to help alleviate the ever-increasing security and compliance management burden for tightly resourced IT and security departments. The latest updates to SolarWinds’ security solutions further these values through key enhancements to improve IT security management across the business.
In today’s multi-tasking IT environment, gaining insight into security activity can often get deprioritized. SolarWinds Log & Event Manager now provides additional automatic scheduling, distribution and notification of security and network activity, empowering IT pros with greater assurance that regular reviews are being performed and additional support to ensure strong security monitoring and compliance management practices are met.
Ease of Management
In smaller IT environments, administrators have the daunting task of managing the infrastructure from end to end. The latest version of SolarWinds Firewall Security Manager, which automates heterogeneous firewall configuration and change management, provides integration with SolarWinds’ centralized management console. Now, administrators can quickly identify high-risk firewalls, recent and upcoming configuration changes and firewall compliance status in SolarWinds’ single pane of glass for managing network, systems and security.
Rapid Time to Value
To ensure patch management processes are optimized, SolarWinds Patch Manager has been enhanced with step-by-step wizards, enabling users to be up and running quickly and significantly reducing the time it takes to get vulnerable machines patched and protected.
“Security may be the most daunting task for IT pros, but in most cases today, ensuring security is no longer an option – it is a legal and ethical responsibility,” said Chris LaPoint, VP Product Management, SolarWinds. “These product enhancements are a testament to our focused efforts to deliver strong security management capabilities to organizations of every size and budget.”
SolarWinds security solutions also include SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager, which provides automated network configuration and change management; SolarWinds User Device Tracker for automatic endpoint tracking and switch port management; and Serv-U Managed File Transfer, which allows organizations to maintain secure file sharing.
