The non-intrusive design of McAfee Database Event Monitor for SIEM supports your expanding compliance auditing and reporting requirements and enhances security operations. While it monitors all database transactions, Database Event Monitor for SIEM provides a complete audit trail of all database activities, including queries, results, authentication activity, and privilege escalations.
Database Event Monitor for SIEM is the only product that both consolidates database activity into a central audit repository and provides normalization, correlation, analysis, and reporting of that activity. It normalizes activity for analysis with other pertinent security information for expanded visibility into user and data interactions, user information, application contents, OS activity, vulnerabilities, and even network location.
Database Event Monitor for SIEM allows you to:
Comply with regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, NERC-CIP, FISMA, GLBA, SOX, and others, while strengthening your overall security posture with pre-defined rules and reports and privacy-friendly logging features.
Get full integration with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager and McAfee Enterprise Log Manager for unprecedented event analysis and correlation, in addition to compliant storage and encryption of data activity logs.
Discover all database instances including unauthorized or rogue databases.
Detect when a database contains sensitive information — such as personal identity information — so that you can monitor all access to that information in accordance with PCI DSS, HIPAA, NERC-CIP, and other compliance requirements.
Retain details of all database transactions, from login to logoff, to support compliance auditing requirements; masking can protect sensitive personal information in logs.
Speed investigations of database events by viewing the entire session from login to logoff with a single mouse click.
Avoid overhead, monitor your database over the network, and ensure the audit data you need is retained.
Leverage integration with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager as a central resource and interface for all database monitoring and compliance needs, and enable database transactions to be used by event correlation and other advanced SIEM features.
Scalable deployment options — Hybrid delivery choices include physical and virtual appliances.

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.

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. Vendors are improving threat intelligence and security analytics. Leading analyst firm Gartner has placed McAfee as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management.

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.
With the advent of big data, traditional SIEM solutions that focus only on logging and compliance reporting fall short of the demands of today’s enterprises for threat intelligence, correlation, and remediation. McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, the core of the McAfee SIEM solution, is both smart and fast. Its proprietary information management back end, purpose-built for managing big data, offers the critical combination of intelligence and speed.
This solution guide addresses the importance of implementing a strategic security and risk management program focused on prevention and protection, reducing incidents and risks across the enterprise, across every device, and across the entire IT infrastructure.
McAfee Enterprise Security Manager offers the advanced scalability, flexibility, and control you need to protect your customers’ business, and grow yours.
The McAfee SIEM solution, Enterprise Security Manager, addresses today’s complex compliance challenges by combining an established unified compliance framework with superior abilities to collect, retrieve, and protect the data required to assess and demonstrate compliance in real time. It’s tightly integrated log collection, management, analysis, and reporting improves an organization’s ability to meet compliance requirements through frameworks, streamlined workflow, and automation.
McAfee spoke with SIEM users and asked them to tell us about their primary issues with SIEM. This brief lists the top five issues along with corresponding customer case studies and use cases.
McAfee enables enterprises to collect, analyze, and preserve security forensic information. With a solution that includes content- and context-aware SIEM, McAfee provides alerts to security events, as well analysis on how the attacked occurred, affected users, and compromised data — so you can better understand the severity of a security breach.
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.
SANS recently surveyed incident response (IR) teams to get a clearer picture of what they're up against today. The results are in; most organizations lack formalized IR plans, they expressed a need to collect and correlate threat intelligence and SIEM tools are their focus for improving IR capabilities.
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.
Learn how network attacks can be avoided by utilizing a SIEM platform that combines historical data with real-time data from network sources and security policies to provide context around application usage, user behaviors, and other operations — for better, more accurate reporting.
This is the first part of a six-part series on compliance-driven security. This paper will illustrate how a well-structured security governance program with fully developed and implemented policies, plans, and procedures will strengthen an organization’s security posture.
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.
In this paper, we explore the subject of continuous compliance versus audit-driven compliance, as well as how an ongoing approach to compliance makes compliance a positive force for securing data and systems.

Advanced evasion techniques (AETs) have developed quite a reputation in the information security sector, given their ability to disguise advanced persistent threats (APTs) and stealthily siphon out data. Although AETs have been active security threats for quite some time, several misconceptions remain. In an effort to dig deeper into how these threats are passing through […]
