ArcSight has announced the launch of ArcSight Logger 4, which includes software designed to enable enterprises to combat the growing threat of cyber crime. With more data, transactions and users online, organisations are increasingly vulnerable to fraud, theft and breaches due to hackers, malware, and malicious insiders. ArcSight Logger reduces the impact of cybercrime by enabling faster and better investigations and forensic analysis of criminal activities.

ArcSight Logger 4 has been designed to fit with the needs of both small and large organisations, and can be deployed as a standalone solution for smaller enterprises or by large companies as a component of the ArcSight SIEM platform.

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) face risk from cyber criminals who know the levels of protection are often much lower than in their larger counterparts. This fact has been highlighted recently with the launch of the UK Office of Cyber Security that will have as one of its goals the engagement of small to medium sized UK enterprises. ArcSight has designed ArcSight Logger 4 to offer SMEs protection from cyber crime, combined with flexibility and ease of implementation.

"Cyber attacks are increasingly targeting companies and agencies that provide the structure for our whole way of life—our water, power, communications, consumer goods, banking systems, government services, and healthcare systems, not to mention national defence systems," said Tom Reilly, president and CEO, ArcSight. "These attacks are quickly morphing and growing in sophistication. Even security experts don't know exactly what to look for when investigating possible incidents. More and more they are looking for faster, more flexible search capabilities across massive amounts of data. We've designed ArcSight Logger 4 to directly address these requirements."

The ArcSight SIEM platform protects more than 40 of the world's banks, the government systems of over 27 nations, more than 25 global telecommunication service providers and more than 25 UK enterprises. With the cyber threat landscape constantly evolving, ArcSight worked with its considerable installed base of government and private sector customers on the requirements for ArcSight Logger 4. Protection of critical infrastructure from the rapidly changing tactics of cyber-attackers was a primary design consideration for ArcSight Logger 4.

ArcSight Logger 4 provides four-way protection against cybercrime impacts:

1 High speed structured and unstructured data collection of up to 42 TB on a single appliance

2 Ultrafast search and reporting, handling terabytes of data in seconds via a Google-like interface

3 Unified analysis across all types of data in a single pane of glass, for simplified investigations

4 Secure storage and access, with support for Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) and Common Access Card (CAC), for criminal investigation and prosecution

The key breakthrough in ArcSight Logger is the ability to collect, search and analyze massive amounts of both structured and unstructured data. This data includes:

* Systems/IT operations data - By analyzing CPU spikes, disk usage, and network flows, ArcSight Logger can aid in detection and remediation of sophisticated malware such as bots and keyloggers.

* User data - By analyzing user access information, ArcSight Logger can aid the investigation and remediation of data breaches due to unauthorized system or database access.

* Application data - By analyzing user activity within key applications, related system access, and social network activity, ArcSight Logger can aid in fraud analysis and investigation.
