New Features Activeworx 4.5 Brings Advanced Security and Log Management Functionality to Managed Service Providers, SMB and the Enterprise

Activeworx 4.5, the Most Advanced Security and Logging Solution Available on the Market Today, Now Available to a Broader Audience

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - January 9, 2008) - CrossTec Corporation announced today the full release of Activeworx 4.5, including the security industry's most advanced SIEM and log management solution available in one out-of-the-box solution. Activeworx 4.5 incorporates all of the full log management capabilities for every event that occurs on a network and/or system, in addition to the complete Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools found in Activeworx 4.0 plus major enhancements for security service providers and enterprise customers with distributed installs. Activeworx 4.5 allows organizations to separate data into distinct, non-comingled data stores, giving security service providers a cost effective way to build a log service with one Activeworx install. Also included in the release is a light version of the powerful Activeworx Audit Logger. The Audit Logger Light module offers high speed log collection for a small number of devices, giving SMB customers or enterprise customers with a few devices falling under a compliance requirement a means to accomplish their logging goals.

"We are very excited to offer Activeworx 4.5 in the marketplace. When we introduced Activeworx 4.0 the market responded with tremendous enthusiasm and our product was met with significant sales and enterprise implementations from the first week the product went gold; Activeworx 4.5 builds on that market share, and incorporates a number of new enhancements that bring log management to security service providers and small to medium business; two market segments that are very important to our continued success. The complete Activeworx version 4.5 product really accomplishes the goal of bringing our integrated SIEM and logging functionality to a broader market," said Jeff Richards, VP of sales for Activeworx. "Our product line now offers enhanced security information management, log management, out-of-the-box regulatory reporting, and data management to enterprises of all sizes and with all budgetary constraints. When we launched Activeworx we said our goal was to work with and grow with our client's needs; Activeworx 4.5 is the continuation of our commitment to that goal."

Other new features found in Activeworx Enterprise 4.5 enable organizations to create immediate on-screen reports based on data found both on the screen and in separate logged files, set parameters for log management and logging capabilities and timing for this organizational necessity, normalize and filter reports based on a non-SQL fashion, integrate multiple databases and information found in them for logged events, and more. Not only does the functionality of Activeworx Enterprise 4.5 enable enhanced demonstrability of data management from a regulatory perspective, but it also helps facilitate a greater and time sensitive understanding of what is happening -- and what is not happening in an organization -- both centrally and from localized perspectives.
