Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) November 24, 2011
indeni, the leader in security operations monitoring, today announced the release of indeni 1.11, the most recent version of the company’s advanced network security monitoring system. An unusually broad and feature-rich update, this release adds a number of user-requested capabilities as well as expanded coverage of network security devices, including Advanced Monitoring of Juniper Junos gateways.
“This release represents our ongoing commitment to continuous development and expansion of indeni’s comprehensive monitoring capabilities," says Elad Ben-Meir, VP, Products and Strategy at indeni. "We've dramatically broadened and deepened our coverage, as well as implemented a number of sophisticated new tools to significantly expand indeni’s feature set.”
Version 1.11 adds significantly to the breadth and depth of indeni’s coverage, as well as adding new signatures, device grouping and batch device addition.
The addition of Juniper Junos ensures full coverage of the two top gateway vendors, Check Point and Juniper, under the company’s world-leading Advanced Monitoring system. All of Juniper's SRX devices running Junos 10 and 11 are now supported, in addition to existing coverage for Juniper devices running ScreenOS. Further expansions are on track for release at the end of 2011 and early 2012.
Among several eagerly-awaited features incorporated into indeni 1.11 is Standard Monitoring, which allows SNMP-based monitoring of any network security device not covered by Advanced Monitoring. This includes devices from vendors such as Cisco, Watchguard, RADware, F5 and Citrix, among many others. Using SNMP, indeni pulls information regarding CPU and memory usage, NIC statistics, storage information and the defined routing table from any SNMP-enabled device connected to the network.
Says Ben-Meir, “This broad, standard-level coverage of all network security devices ensures that indeni users have all their security device monitoring housed under one roof.”
indeni 1.11 also now includes the capability to group devices in a number of user-defined hierarchies to more easily keep track of large numbers of monitored devices. Additionally, devices will be grouped automatically by the system into device clusters, such as a firewall cluster; by type (“Juniper Junos 11” devices, for example); or into groupings retrieved from supported firewall management servers. Users can now also add multiple devices at once via CSV file upload, furthering indeni’s commitment to ease of use and time savings.
"At indeni we believe in simplicity and knowledge, an outlook which is clearly visible in this latest release," says Ben-Meir. “We are committed to the broadest coverage possible for network security devices and the easiest possible management of them.”
As with every release of the software, indeni 1.11 adds new signatures to its already extensive database, with extra support added for DNS configuration errors, NIC duplexing and misaligned feature/license issues.
Other additions to indeni 1.11 include improved device status indicators and support for Syslog messages when issuing alerts . And, besides alerting on observed issues, the system now allows users to append notes to alerts, allowing administrators to easily track and communicate their observations to other system users.
"We listen to our customers and cater to their needs,” says Ben-Meir. “In doing so, we have added, and will continue to add, a number of well thought-out features to indeni to simplify their lives a little more."
