SEATTLE, August 19, 2013– Tactical FLEX, Inc., a global provider of information security, vulnerability, and risk management software solutions, today announced a new webinar entitled “SIEM-Based Intrusion Detection: Advantages of Using Open-Source Snort and Suricata IDS with Aanval SAS.”

According to a recent RSA survey, 89% of mid-size organizations surveyed are using SIEM solution for security operations compared to just 54% that cited compliance, and 68% that cited IT and network operations. When respondents were asked to cite one thing they would like to change about their current SIEM solution besides cost, the top issue identified was to improve alerting for security incidents. In addition, a frequent problem respondents face with those already using a log management or SIEM solution are incident response limitations. Security experts believe that SIEM solutions that interface with a successful Intrusion Detection System (IDS) are most suited to monitor network traffic, deliver real-time alerts, and provide effective threat management that can result in a greater security posture. Tactical FLEX, Inc. is among SIEM-leading suppliers that provides a strong focus on intrusion detection for successful threat management. Aanval SAS (Situational Awareness System), a proven commercial enterprise solution, comes tightly integrated with effective Snort and/or Suricata open source security tools and can also support any device with syslog capabilities to deliver complete data management. Aanval’s threat management technology that provides greater intelligence and network visibility can quickly respond to high-risk security events by accelerating the detection and alerting of possible attacks.

Join this complimentary webinar:

» To understand how Aanval’s intrusion detection approach to security threat management helps organizations proactively seek out potential problems before they actualize, instead of operating in a reactive mode after attacks have occurred.

» To explore the capabilities and advantages of Snort and Suricata IDS. Why are these two IDS engines so successful in monitoring network traffic and providing alerts?

» If you are searching for an affordable and powerful security and network operations solution with a strong focus on intrusion detection, coupled with robust log management and SIEM capabilities to help mitigate security risks as well as improve your organization’s security posture and threat management detection and prevention capabilities.
