Littleton, CO (PressExposure) July 09, 2013 -- SNARE Server v6.1.0 release includes many new security and agent management features, including an Agent Management Console.
The Agent Console uses a "cloneable" objectives design that enables the user to pull the configuration from an existing compatible SNARE Enterprise Agent and push it out to other compatible Enterprise Agents, enabling a wider set of agents to be managed under a single objective. Other features include the ability to include specific hosts in the management functionality, regardless of whether they currently report log data to the SNARE Server, and limiting agents by hostname and version filters.
The Agent Management Console allows an IT or network security manager or systems administrator to:
Pull the current configuration from a SNARE Master Agent to compare against the managed SNARE Enterprise Agent configurations, either by filtering agents that report event logs to the SNARE Server by hostname and/or version, or by specifying non-reporting agents manually by IP or IP range.
Specify the type of agent to be managed (to ensure configurations aren't corrupted by passing the wrong configuration).
Establish a schedule to run the configuration check.
Push the master configuration out to each of the managed agents to sync configurations against the Master Agent.
Send email alerts when agents are un-contactable and/or have a different configuration.
Other new features of SNARE Server v 6.1.0:
New Correlation - Multi-Table Search Objective
TCP HTTP Collection Server for browser-based agent support.
New Web Browser Agent Objectives for Firefox and Chrome.
Updated Account Flags Objective to support finer control over the flag filtering options.
SNMP Trap Collection
Sophos Web Log Event support.
SonicWall SSL VPN Log Event support.
New Threshold Output Module
