AccelOps, the integrated data center and cloud service monitoring leader, today announced that RenewData has selected AccelOps' Security Information Event Management (SIEM) platform. Leveraging AccelOps' extensive security management functionality and knowledgebase, RenewData was able to achieve results and produce necessary documentation to augment their information security programs and meet ISO/IEC 27001 standards quickly and cost-effectively.
ISO/IEC 27001 certification is the leading standard for service providers to demonstrate their security program and respective operations adhere to security management best practices. Less than 100 companies in the US have achieved this certification to date. Among ISO 27001 requirements are monitoring of security events, resource access and configuration changes, as well as comprehensive log, incident and audit management.
RenewData joins other enterprise customers and service providers migrating from conventional log management and SIEM systems to AccelOps to automate compliance processes.
AccelOps' platform combines advanced event, log, configuration, security, identity and access data cross-correlation and incident management technologies with a knowledgebase of built-in rules, dashboards and over 900 report templates mapped to best practices. The result enables proactive controls, expedites incident response and automates operational and compliance reporting.
"As a provider of e-Discovery solutions, assuring the integrity and protection our company and clients' information assets are paramount. We continue to invest in proven processes and leading-edge solutions to achieve service reliability and maintain operational integrity," said Ed McCraken, COO at RenewData. "We have a complex, dynamic infrastructure and an extensive security management program. AccelOps provides our security team with the comprehensive situational awareness and extensive audit capacity necessary to support our ISO compliance requirements."
RenewData is a trusted provider of eDiscovery, archiving and review-acceleration solutions helping hundreds of law firms, corporations and government agencies manage the inherent risks associated with Electronically Stored Information (ESI). RenewData's primary drivers were to build-out their security and log management faculties and automate audit processes to fortify ISO/IEC 27001 compliance standards.
"Ask any security practitioner about their holy grail and the answer is twofold: They want one alert specifying exactly what is broken, on just the relevant events, with the ability to learn the extent of the damage. They need to pare down billions of events into actionable information. Second, they want to make the auditor go away as quickly and painlessly as possible, which requires them to streamline both the preparation and presentation aspects of the audit process," said Michael Rothman, security industry analyst and president of Securosis. "SIEM and Log Management tools have emerged to address these needs and continue to generate a tremendous amount of interest in the market, given the compelling use cases for the technologies."
RenewData uses AccelOps to consolidate, monitor, analyze, report and retain volumes of log, event, configuration and access data. The solution offers real-time correlation, historical analysis and compliance reporting without requiring the deployment of software agents. AccelOps goes beyond conventional SIEM approaches by providing a single pane of glass that cross-correlates security and performance operational data across technology boundaries. Key features that figured prominently in making the AccelOps selection were:
• Out-of-the-box use: Immediate value from an extensible knowledgebase;
• Streamlined compliance: Central platform to address diverse compliance attributes;
• Robust: Broad source coverage, flexible reporting, online data analysis and scalability;
• Advanced event correlation and management: Log consolidation, network behavior analysis, IDS false positive filtering, intelligent alert suppression; and more
• Administration Ease: Rapid deployment, discovery, configuration and maintenance.
"We welcome organizations to compare AccelOps' breadth of functionality, scale and value to that of more conventional SIEM approaches, and like RenewData, automate security operations and compliance processes at a lower total cost of ownership," said Imin Lee, CEO of AccelOps.
