DENALI SWITCHES TO ACCELOPS SIEM FROM LOGRHYTHM; ADVANCING VISIBILITY, COMPLIANCE AUTOMATION AND SCALE
Denali Alaskan FCU Leverages AccelOps’ Integrated Log Management, Real-time Correlation, Identity Controls and Configuration Monitoring
SANTA CLARA, CALIF. – October 12, 2010 –
AccelOps, the integrated data center and
cloud service monitoring leader, today announced that Denali Alaskan Federal Credit
Union has selected AccelOps SIEM for integrated network security, log, identity and
configuration monitoring. Denali Alaskan, who had previously used LogRhythm, was
seeking to scale their operational visibility and gain more automated compliance controls
at a lower total cost of ownership.
Denali Alaskan joins other enterprise customers and service providers migrating from
conventional log management and Security Information Event Management (SIEM)
systems to AccelOps’ integrated data center monitoring solution for greater SIEM
functionality, versatility and administrative ease. Many organizations are looking beyond
conventional SIEM approaches to address:
- SOC/NOC convergence where by cross-correlating a broader set of operational controls
yields 360 degree insight and root-cause analysis of value to all IT functions
- The disparate tools, time and resources expended to support the myriad of incident
response, audit and operational reporting activities
- The administrative burden and cost to implement, maintain and scale SIEM products
"We knew that we needed a more capable security and log management approach that
could help us manage and make better use of increased audit and operational data," said
Keith Bennett, vice president of information technology at Denali Alaskan Federal Credit
Union. "AccelOps was straightforward to implement, administer and scale with immediate
value for my security and network staff. The virtual appliance package with combined log
management, SIEM, flow analysis, configuration and performance monitoring offers
Denali Alaskan FCU is the third largest credit union in the State of Alaska with $440m in
assets, over 300 employees and branches in all major communities. The full service
financial institution offers the core credit union banking, as well as investment, mortgage,
business lending and insurance services. Denali Alaskan’s primary drive was to expand
their SIEM capacity and automate compliance processes to address National Credit Union
Administration (NCUA) and Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC)
standards, as well as Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLBA) requirements and standards set by the
Payment Card Industry (PCI).
"Organizations must defend against more complex internal and external threats, manage
fraud and compliance risks, and respond to incidents faster and according to business
impact. To accomplish this, InfoSec professionals require broader and more intelligent
operational visibility," said Richard Steinnon, security expert and industry analyst at ITHarvest.
"AccelOps not only provides the necessary built-in security and compliance
knowledgebase, but offers innovations in cross-correlation, online data retention and
SOC/NOC convergence that address today’s security requirements."
Denali Alaskan uses AccelOps to consolidate, monitor, analyze, report and retain volumes
of log and event 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 network devices, applications,
databases, security, virtualization and technology boundaries. Key capabilities that
figured prominently in making the AccelOps selection were:
- Compliance: Integrated network security, configuration and identity monitoring
with built in rules and reports mapped to leading compliance frameworks
- Usability: Ease of use and extensive incident, search and reporting analytics
- Network flow and IDS integration: Network behavior analysis and automated
IDS false positive filtering to pinpoint sophisticated threats and reduce noise
- Administration and Scale: Simpler deployment and maintain with the means to
scale on demand by leveraging VMware virtual appliance and external storage
- Beyond SIEM: Automated CMDB, performance monitoring and service mapping
for greater oversight, collaboration and incident prioritization by business impact
"We welcome organizations to compare AccelOps’ breadth of functionality, scale and value
to that of more conventional SIEM approaches, and like Denali Alaskan, gain greater
operational control at a lower total cost of ownership," said Imin Lee, CEO of AccelOps.
