McAfee Enterprise Log Manager collects, compresses, signs, and stores all original events with a clear audit trail of activity that can’t be repudiated. Security events are collected and linked directly to the original record stored on it, enabling one-click access for event management, forensic investigations, and compliance monitoring. It accommodates different log management needs via flexible storage pools spanning local or remote storage devices and configurable retention periods.
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 McAfee 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:

How experts fight advanced threats with real-time SIEM and identification of eight key indicators of attack.
This paper explores the use of analytics and intelligence today and exposes the impediments to successful implementation. Organizations that are deploying analytics and intelligence properly are experiencing faster response and detection times, as well as greater visibility. However, many are confused about how to integrate and automate their intelligence collection processes.
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.

How do we get more visibility into attacks across our environments, improve our response, and reduce response time? The solution is automating functions that should be automated and connecting the dots between detection systems and response. Connecting these dots and applying intelligence provides responders rich context into the observed behaviors for taking action. Integrating these processes improves accuracy, while reducing time, manpower, and costs involved in detecting and managing events. This white paper explores how to achieve this.
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.
