GFI Software announced it has added enhanced security and compliance features to GFI EventsManager 2011, including Microsoft SharePoint log management, and auto-update patch management capabilities.
GFI EventsManager enables IT administrators to meet a broad array of network and data security, regulatory compliance, business continuity and e-discovery requirements by monitoring, logging and analyzing all events occurring on a network. The latest version of GFI EventsManager applies these same log monitoring and reporting capabilities to SharePoint environments.
Without a solution like GFI EventsManager and LOGbinder SP, administrators have no easy way to monitor SharePoint activity. While SharePoint offers an audit log solution, many organizations require more robust capabilities such as matching users to specific events and generating detailed reports and audits.
GFI EventsManager 2011 enables administrators to more effectively monitor SharePoint, preventing data leaks, minimizing downtime, and ensuring compliance and security practices are enforced.
LOGbinder SP – a Windows-based service that can be installed on any SharePoint server – monitors SharePoint events and translates that activity into a Windows event log. GFI EventsManager then collects the events generated by LOGbinder SP and archives the logs into one centralized database for easy management and analysis.
The new version of GFI EventsManager also includes an auto-update feature, which frequently monitors for product updates and automatically downloads and installs them.
