CrossTec Announces Activeworx Enterprise 4.1 With Advanced Usability of Historical Data

Activeworx Enterprise 4.1 Offers Comprehensive Integration Between Long-Term Data Retention and the Urgency of Real-Time Security Information and Event Management

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - October 23, 2007) - CrossTec Corporation announced today the release of Activeworx Enterprise (AE) 4.1, including the security industry's most complete combination of historical data logging capabilities and real-time data intelligence available in one modular, scalable, software solution. Activeworx Enterprise 4.1 incorporates full log management capabilities; capturing every network event for fast, secure write-to-media, while leveraging Activeworx Security Center's complete, award-winning, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools. The powerful integration of these tools enables companies to have both real-time SIEM and real-time forensic capabilities never seen before in the market; Activeworx 4.1 also reinforces an organization's rock solid proof of compliance.

"We are very excited to bring Activeworx 4.1 to the market. This type of easy access to your current and historical data is the type of product security administrators have been dreaming of," said Jeff Richards, VP of Sales for Activeworx brands. "We live and work in a time where it is both costly and nearly impossible to track real exposure in a security breach situation, without having historical data at a moment's notice. Organizations must have the tools in their enterprise to maintain the security of their customers, and to avoid both the regulatory and financial ramifications of non-compliance. CrossTec's security products begin from our core belief that the full utilization of historical and real-time data working in unison is mission critical to maintaining an effective security and compliance posture."

Sandra Palumbo, Program Manager and Senior Analyst of the Yankee Group, agrees, "Today's organizations are looking for cost-effective solutions which can do more, enable higher levels of security and log management capabilities, and enhance organizational understanding of what is happening in the network enterprise."

"With Activeworx 4.1, IT and Security Administrators gain direct visibility into system, network, and application health, while maintaining the comfort brought by real-time alerting and comprehensive reporting," said Richards. "CrossTec and our team of engineers are focused on creating high value solutions that simplify log management, enhance incident response, and help ensure regulatory compliance. With Activeworx Enterprise 4.1, we feel we have achieved our goal of forging log management and SIEM into a unified tool in the fight for enterprise and data security."
