Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) has developed a network security incident remediation solution with LogRhythm that helps reduce mean time to resolution. The joint solution enables automatic capture of network packet data associated with security events. This allows analysis in response to network anomalies and threats.
The automation capability of the Ixia Anue Net Tool Optimizer® complements the ability of LogRhythm’s next-generation Security Information and Event Management platform to detect, analyze and respond to security threats. The integration enables a user, upon detecting an anomaly or threat in LogRhythm, to use a LogRhythm SmartResponse™ plug-in to automatically trigger the Anue NTO solution. At this point the appropriate network traffic is sent to a forensic recorder or other security probe for capture and further analysis.
The combination of the Anue NTO and LogRhythm solutions helps organizations:
- Speed root-cause analysis by enabling the capture of packet-level detail pertaining to security threats.
- Simplify and automate compliance reporting.
- Provide security tools the right data at the right time from anywhere in an organization’s network to maximize coverage.
- Eliminate time-consuming manual processes.
The integrated Anue NTO and LogRhythm solution is compatible with any security tool, including forensic recorder, IDS/IPS, DLP, or malware analyzer, and is easy to deploy using the currently available LogRhythm SmartResponse plug-in for the Anue NTO.
“Security threats can be quickly resolved with the right packet information,” said John Delfeld, director of business development for Ixia Network Visibility Solutions. “By combining LogRhythm’s powerful security monitoring and threat detection with the Anue NTO’s automated packet capture, the right traffic is sent to the right tools at the right time. This ensures that forensic recorders, malware protection systems and data loss prevention appliances are receiving the data they need in order to mitigate the threat.”
“The Ixia Anue NTO solution allows customers to respond to threats identified in the LogRhythm console by directing associated network traffic to a standby forensic recorder for capture and analysis,” said Matt Winter, LogRhythm’s vice president of corporate and business development. “With our SmartResponse plug-in for the Anue NTO, customers can slash incident response times by automating manual activities and ensuring that they have access to relevant packet-level data for forensic analysis.”
