Central management of security devices, policies and events to help evaluate and communicate your overall risk posture.
IBM Proventia® Management SiteProtector™ System provides central management of security devices to control policies, events, analysis and reporting for your business.
IBM Proventia® Management SiteProtector™ system offers a simpler, cost-effective way to manage security solutions and ease regulatory compliance by providing a central management point to control security policy, analysis, alerting and reporting for your business.
Proventia Management SiteProtector System
IBM Proventia® Management SiteProtectorTM system offers a flexible, one-stop security management system to command and control a broad array of network security agents and devices required to monitor and measure your exposure to vulnerabilities and demonstrate regulatory compliance. It can reduce the burden of your IT security team by unifying the management of IBM security platform offerings across gateways, networks, servers and desktops, as well as select third-party security solutions. Backed by, and integrated with the IBM X-Force® research and development team with its tools, online security information and security updates, the SiteProtector system can help minimize your overall risk and increase efficacy of your security team with maximum cost efficiency.
Managing your security operations from a central point
Managing your security infrastructure is never an easy task, but when you're trying to manage multiple devices, security vendors and compliance regulations, it can seem impossible. Over time, the cost and complexity of securing your organization can rise substantially, without a corresponding decrease in your exposure to security risks and noncompliance. Valuable resources are continually diverted from revenue-gathering projects while your IT staff spends hours on day-to-day administration.
Easing the cost and complexity of security management
The SiteProtector system helps reduce operational costs by automating and simplifying tasks such as setting policies, applying updates, scanning and enabling protection. From a single interface, you can monitor events and manage all of your IBM ISS technologies, including network and host intrusion prevention, scanning, desktop security and multifunction security. With just one system to deploy, learn and maintain, one vendor to turn to for support and one management console to control your security infrastructure, this innovative solution can help you reduce the costs and complexity associated with security management and free your IT staff to focus on other critical projects.
You can organize your security devices within the SiteProtector system and create custom-defined groupings for an enterprisewide risk perspective of assets, threats and vulnerabilities. The SiteProtector system includes advanced features to help you correlate and prioritize near real-time vulnerability and threat information to help you quickly assess the information that's most critical or relevant to your environment—enabling IT staff to focus on your greatest risks. You can also use the SiteProtector system to increase the priority level of alerts and reduce console and database clutter by discarding details of unsuccessful attacks. The SiteProtector system facilitates a robust roles and permissions model to help you delegate responsibilities among various team members. Site administrators can use a Web browser from virtually any location to grant selected users the ability to perform certain functions. For example, administrators may allow some users to see and operate security devices located in a certain geography, while limiting others as read-only users without the ability to change security policy.
Evaluating and communicating your risk posture
The SiteProtector system can help you quickly identify and communicate potential threats, and assess your security posture by enabling you to:
Easy-to-use, customizable reporting capabilities let you sort information by virtually any parameter and provide auditors and regulators with critical information. The SiteProtector system also allows you to make timely adjustments to policies. Guided analysis capabilities help transform even the new security analyst into a knowledgeable expert, taking the guesswork out of event analysis and aiding your security analyst with logical investigation paths to quickly get to the cause of an issue.
A broad array of reports—both predefined and customized—within the SiteProtector system can allow you to identify and document:
SiteProtector reporting capabilities not only help ease compliance measures, but they can also provide specific details regarding security breaches. Reports on asset security, vulnerability remediation and trends provide an enterprise view of improvements to your security posture over time and help enable intelligent, cost-effective decisions regarding your network. A forced versioning feature within the SiteProtector policy editor helps enable automated tracking and logging of policy history to further reduce the burden of change-control compliance.
