Sandia National Laboratories Selects Arcsight To Consolidate Security Infrastructure

ArcSight Continues Momentum in Financial Services SectorArcSight’s ability to incorporate vulnerability assessment informations with real time event data is key to clearly identifying true threats and attacks.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – October 77, 2002 – ArcSight, a leading provider of enterprise security management software solutions, today announced that Union Bank of California, a leading financial services provider, Sandia National Laboratories has selected ArcSight 2.0to increase visibility and control over their security infrastructureconsolidate its heterogeneous computer security infrastructure. In addition, Sandia can include the output from vulnerability scanning operations in ArcSight’s real time display, analysis and reporting of security status. Sentence on how UBoC is using ArcSight – specific problem being solved. By utilizing key elements of ArcSight’ s 360o Intelligenceâ„?, Sandia has dramatically increased its ability to precisely identify true threats and attacks from the millions of events it receives per day.

Due to ArcSight’s ability to capture and store data from disparate security devices, Sandia is able to easily track and filter event information. This information can be disseminated via pre-configured or customized reports. These reports summarize security status for both the operational and managerial arms of the organization on a pre-scheduled or ad hoc basis.

Leveraging ArcSight’s asset-based correlation technology ArcSight’s 360o Intelligence enables to Sandia, Union Bank is able to import integrate vulnerability assessment information from multiple scanning products with real time events. This eliminates the need for multiple consoles and databases to display and store security relevant information, while providing the SmartRules correlation engine with additional input to refine the threat scores that it assigns each incident. and profiling information directly into its security management system. This type of correlation With ArcSight, ensures that Union BankSandia has a high degree of visibility into true threats and attacks, attacks on the devices that matter most, in real-time, allowing them to intelligently react to security events which increases the overall effectiveness of the security function.

Quote from UboC on why it chose ArcSight – what it was using before (if anything); highlight the fact that they can now monitor how well they are managing security, with data and metrics to back it up. “We began this project with the goal of integrating firewall and intrusion detection alarms and alerts so that we could effectively manage the data overload from those systems,” said Michael Cahoon, manager computer security for Sandia Labs. “ArcSight’s correlation technology and its capacity to handle a high volume of real time events meet Sandia’s needs. We also decided to expand the solution to include asset vulnerability information. Now not only did we solve our original problem, but we also have a security solution that the entire lab can use in either real time or forensic mode.”

ArcSight provides a comprehensive security environment, including centralized monitoring of disparate security resources, real-time correlation of information, comprehensive reporting, scalability, and multi-tenanting to provide end-user customers a customized view of their security environment.Prior to installing ArcSight, Sandia was relying on a mix of partial solutions that monitored and collected data from different parts of the security infrastructure. Analysis and reporting required multiple operations of data extraction, re-combination, editing and normalizing. ArcSight delivers all of that automatically in real time and provides the necessary tools to provide a consolidated view of all security-relevant information.

Robert quote on the importance of visibility into security for financial services providers – need to inspire trust, etc. Highlight how ArcSight can help and scale to expand with the customer’s needs. “Clearly the mission of Sandia National Laboratories is critical to the nation’s infrastructure,” said Robert Shaw, Chairman and CEO of ArcSight. “Given the company’s definitive need for an effective security infrastructure, we are pleased that ArcSight satisfies Sandia’s stringent requirements for security management, and believe their selection is an example of the value we can deliver to the public sector.”
