McAfee Enterprise Log Manager automates log management and analysis for all log types, including Windows Event logs, Database logs, Application logs, and Syslogs. Logs are signed and validated, ensuring authenticity and integrity — a necessity for regulatory compliance. Out-of-the-box compliance rule sets and reports make it simple to prove your organization is in compliance and policies are being enforced.
Using this tightly integrated log collection, management, and analysis environment will both strengthen your security profile and dramatically improve your ability to comply with over 240 standards, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA/HITECH, NERC-CIP, FISMA, GLBA, and SOX.
Intelligent log management — Enterprise Log Manager collects logs intelligently, storing the right logs for compliance, and parsing and analyzing those logs for security. You can retain logs in their original format for as long as you require for specific compliance needs. Since we do not alter the original log files, McAfee supports chain of custody and non-repudiation efforts.
Integrated with Enterprise Security Manager — Enterprise Log Manager is an optional, integrated part of McAfee Enterprise Security Manager. While Enterprise Log Manager stores the logs, they can be deeply parsed, normalized, and analyzed by Enterprise Security Manager. Log information is immediately available for real-time security investigations and incident response.
Collect, sign, and store any log type in its original format for as long as you require to support your specific compliance needs.
Use easily customizable storage pools to ensure that your logs are stored correctly and for the right amount of time.
Differentiate logs stored for compliance from logs to be parsed and analyzed for security.
Choose the best storage option for your needs — with up to 7.5 TB of usable HDD storage on the appliances, and optional fiber channel cards for high-speed SAN storage.
Get one-click access to original log files and even the specific log record from any point in the event management process.
Provide log management and retention capabilities to support advanced use cases, including:
|Collection Rates||75,000 events per second||50,000 events per second||40,000 events per second|
|Analytical Performance||14 TB||8 TB||3 TB|
Built for big security data, McAfee Global Threat Intelligence for McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) puts the power of McAfee Labs directly into the security monitoring flow using McAfee’s high-speed, highly intelligent security information and event management (SIEM) solution.
The security information and event management (SIEM) market is defined by the customer's need to analyze security event data in real time for internal and external threat management, and to collect, store, analyze and report on log data for regulatory compliance and forensics. The vendors that are included in Gartner’s analysis have technologies that have been designed for this purpose, and they actively market and sell these technologies to the security buying center.
McAfee integrates NitroSecurity products into its portfolio, improving its SIEM offering.

How Intelligent and scalable SIEM solutions help IT security professionals stay on top of an ever-evolving, data-driven environment. A report from McAfee and CIO.
This report takes a candid look at triggers for considering a new security management platform, walking through each aspect of the decision, and presenting a process to migrate.
This Pike Pulse report presents an analysis of the current governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) vendors that are believed to be the best positioned for the future. McAfee scores the highest in assessment of GRC vendors for smart grid security.
Broad adoption of SIEM technology is being driven by the need to detect threats and breaches, as well as by compliance needs. Early breach discovery requires effective user activity, data access and application activity monitoring. Leading analyst firm Gartner has placed McAfee as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management.

Learn how McAfee IT uses the McAfee SIEM with other McAfee products to provide the highest level of visibility and situational awareness to protect critical information and infrastructure, achieve PCI compliance, and leverage virtual machines in the McAfee security infrastructure.
When there are indications that an attack may have occurred, security analysts require immediate visibility into the state of systems. McAfee Enterprise Security Manager seamlessly integrates with McAfee Real Time to gather system state continuously, introducing unprecedented situational awareness.
Deployment of McAfee Enterprise Security Manager and Enterprise Log Manager addresses the need for secure log collection, transport, handling, and storage, permitting your organization to prove non-repudiation and chain of custody of log records. Adding in McAfee Integrity Control ensures that the native log files being generated are a true and accurate record, preventing malicious users from interfering with the log generation process.
The McAfee solution has two primary components: McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) software and McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, with additional integrations to extend visibility and control across the entire security and compliance management environment.
This paper addresses the Big Security Data challenge and highlights the key criteria organizations need to consider for processing security information in light of today’s dynamic threat landscape.
This paper will walk you through the entire process — from soup to nuts — of evaluating, selecting, and deploying a SIEM. It offers pragmatic advice on how to get it done based on years working through this process as both consumers and vendors of SIEM technology. The process is not always painless, but we are certain it will help you avoid foundering on bad technology and inter-office politics. You owe it to yourself and your organization to ask the right questions and to get answers. It is time to slay the sacred cow of your substantial SIEM investment, and to figure out your best path forward.
