SAN FRANCISCO, May 18 -- Enterprise software leader SenSage, Inc. reports that more than half of its 400 enterprise customers are adopting the latest version of its event data warehouse offerings to address emerging security threats, compliance mandates, and a host of risk management initiatives at a fraction of the cost of traditional data warehouse and log management offerings.
By updating their SenSage software, customers benefit from a new graphical user interface that makes it more intuitive for business analysts and executive users to create new business-specific rules, generate reports and analyze event data efficiently. In addition, SenSage now provides an even more powerful real-time engine as well, making the process of gleaning actionable intelligence from the reams of event data even faster and more cost-effective. Because these new features can dramatically increase productivity, SenSage customers are embracing the new event data warehouse technology.
Andrew Peterson, division chief, Security Management Division of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Information & Technology for Region 1, said, "Given the sheer volume of data and the breadth of different sources, event data analysis presents a daunting challenge. Implementing SenSage enabled us to meet or exceed all expectations of federal regulatory requirements by centralizing security event logs and analyzing for threats in real time. The analytic capabilities are powerful, and the ability to maintain all data on-line, coupled with the new user interface, has reduced the time and resources needed to conduct investigations."
For many organizations, event data is their fastest growing data type and, often, their single largest data store. Even for small firms, it is common to generate over a terabyte of event data each day. Event data includes information such as network , security and database logs, physical access systems, enterprise applications, bank transactions, telecommunications call records, Internet traffic detail and manufacturing sensor data.
"With SenSage, my team at Magellan has been able to enhance our current logging and monitoring strategy with additional components that will allow us to move from a reactive environment to an enhanced proactive environment," said Nicholas LoPresti, director of Information Security Services at Magellan. "SenSage continues to stay in touch with the market and evolve their products to meet our changing needs." (continued...)
