A US-based startup plans to roll out a suite of products to provide IT managers with an integrated view of security conditions across their enterprises.
eSecurity's Open eSecurity Platform (OeSP) enables users to monitor events tracked by third-party tools from a single management console. The console can be used to both compare events in real time, and also generate analysis reports to help security administrators manage their policies.
Steven Kahan, eSecurity's president, said the firm acquired OeSP from telecommunications firm Harris Corporation, which developed the offering to protect its own network.
Reed Harrison, Harris' former director of global security is now the firm's vice president of professional services, while Allen Buffington, former chief information officer at Fidelity Investments, has been hired as its chief technology officer.
"We have done some minor tweaking, but we really didn't need to do a major revamp of the product," Kahan said, although support for SNMPv3, a secure version of the management protocol, has been added.
OeSP includes the network monitoring console, agent software and a management help and response desk, but eSecurity also provides a set of standalone products to handle application security, intrusion detection and Web access control.
The Administrator Workbench enables customers to create the scripts that tell agents how to communicate with specific tools and then link those tools back back to the console. The agents send data to the network monitoring console, which correlates key security events and then aligns the events in relation to the time or location of their occurrence.
A Management Desk, however, also provides tools to direct workflow procedures for security policies and service level agreements.
