Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) October 12, 2011
indeni, the leader in security operations monitoring, today announced the release of indeni 1.10, the latest version of their advanced network security monitoring system. This revision adds email reporting capabilities and reflects indeni’s work with CA Spectrum Infrastructure Manager, a leading IT solution for monitoring network infrastructures.
“We have aggressively sought working with leading IT solution providers to make indeni as widely compatible as possible and to give our customers’ deployed solutions additional capabilities as well,” says Yonadav Leitersdorf, indeni CEO. “We are very pleased with the fact that indeni 1.10 is now fully compatible with CA Spectrum Infrastructure Manager to generate SNMP alerts. It’s just one more way that we make the system as flexible as we can.”
In addition, indeni 1.10 adds a reporting feature that the company plans to expand in future releases. The system now includes Device Configuration and Alert Summary reports, which can be generated by indeni automatically on a user-set daily schedule. The configuration report is generated for each chosen monitored device separately and includes configuration details such as licensing information and a list of network interfaces and routing tables. The alert summary lists all new alerts since the last report as well as updates to previously generated alerts, allowing users to track status over time. It includes alerts not normally included in email alerts, such as non-critical warnings and informational alerts, and can be set to generate a report for whatever individual devices the user chooses.
“It is often important to be able to look back at a device over time and see how it was configured weeks or months ago,” says Leitersdorf. “We designed the reports to be easily indexed and archived by the user’s email program so that administrators can quickly find that information. Our entire purpose is to save administrators’ time whenever and however we can.”
Other enhancements in indeni 1.10 include additional support for ScreenOS 6, added in response to indeni’s request for user feedback on their previous release. New alert signatures include noting whether an open server used with a Check Point firewall is configured to use its onboard NICs with high traffic volumes (a configuration not recommended by indeni). The system will also now alert if a particular firewall is set to trust DigiNotar CA certificates, as vendors around the world recommended removal of support for certificates issued by this certificate authority. The Device Profiles have also been updated to flag a firewall that suddenly reports less than a set number of connections or sessions, which can occur when the firewall has been circumvented by other network equipment.
“This is an exceptionally robust release of our software,” Leitersdorf says. “It lays the foundation for a lot of future capabilities, and we hope our users continue to give us their feedback as to where they would like us to take the system next.”
