CAs eTrust Security Command Center Brings Security Management Under Control

Wednesday 15 October 2003 11:47 CET | News

Computer Associates (CA) has launched eTrust Security Command Center, a revolutionary enterprise security management solution that empowers organizations to greatly reduce risk by proactively managing the complexities of their security operations and eTrust Vulnerability Manager, a rack mountable security management appliance that automatically discovers business critical assets and pinpoints vulnerabilities that threaten the integrity of enterprise IT environments.

By integrating security management under a common point-of-control, eTrust Security Command Center aggregates, correlates and prioritizes the overwhelming quantity of disparate security data generated across an enterprise, enabling organizations to protect their information infrastructures with optimal effectiveness and efficiency. Enterprise security administrators today are often inundated with millions of messages and events daily. Even one security incident can generate thousands of messages. This security information overload makes it nearly impossible to prioritize events and determine the level of attention they require. eTrust Security Command Center gathers and integrates critical security data from CAs eTrust solutions and third-party products, including those offered by Check Point, Cisco, IBM, Internet Security Systems, McAfee, Microsoft, Nessus, Netscreen, Nortel, Snort, Symantec, Trend Micro and other companies. It leverages this information to efficiently manage security from a true business perspective -- appropriately prioritizing the most critical potential incidents and applying consistent policies across all systems, platforms and locations. In conjunction with the newly announced eTrust Vulnerability Manager, eTrust Security Command Center helps ensure that customers immediately respond to any and all emerging vulnerabilities as soon as they are identified. eTrust Vulnerability Manager takes real-time inventories of assets across the enterprise and correlates them with up-to-date, fully validated vulnerabilities. By streamlining and validating critical risk assessment and infrastructure protection tasks, eTrust Vulnerability Manager reduces the costs associated with vulnerability management and remediation. Powered by a continuously updated knowledge base of more than 6,000 vulnerabilities, eTrust Vulnerability Manager ensures that computing infrastructures can be effectively monitored for even the most recently discovered system vulnerabilities and that the most up-to-date configuration standards are maintained. By freeing security managers from tracking the latest security advisories and verifying enterprise compliance, eTrust Vulnerability Manager strengthens security implementations and allows technicians to focus on more strategic issues. Through its asset-based inside-out approach to vulnerability detection, eTrust Vulnerability Manager can accurately identify critical assets, including operating systems, applications and databases, down to the individual patch level. An asset-to-vulnerability correlation generates a prioritized task list complete with step-by-step remediation instructions, reducing the cost and complexity of managing vulnerabilities. Sold on a subscription basis using CAs FlexSelect licensing, eTrust Security Command Center is immediately available at a one time starting fee of US$25,000 per server and US$60 per month for each agent. Sold on a subscription basis using CAs FlexSelect licensing, eTrust Vulnerability Manager is priced at a one time starting fee of US$25,000 per appliance plus US$2 per node per month under CAs FlexSelect licensing model. eTrust Vulnerability Manager supports UNIX, Linux and Windows platforms.
