ArcSight, Inc., a cybersecurity and compliance solutions provider , today announced Logger 5.0 to help organizations cut the time, cost, and effort of IT troubleshooting, compliance reporting, and security audits. ArcSight Logger 5.0 is available today as downloadable software for a starting price of $49. For customers who wish to operate within a cloud or virtualized environment, ArcSight Logger 5.0 can be deployed within the cloud, such as Amazon Web Services or via virtual machine.

In addition to the new price and form factors that support universal availability, ArcSight Logger 5.0 brings new universal log management functionality to customers outside of traditional security and compliance job roles. ArcSight Logger 5.0 can create reports against both structured and unstructured data, as well as unified search across data types.

ArcSight Logger 5.0 also includes a new, simplified search language for users who prefer iterative searches. For example, an IT help-desk employee might use multiple commands to troubleshoot a failing server, then pipe the results to a live graph or chart. These results can also be saved as reports for future execution. Logger 5.0 includes new IT operations analysis functions, such as:

  • Application build-error tracking
  • Application runtime stack trace reporting
  • Failed login analysis
  • System CPU utilization analysis

Logger 5.0 is the underlying data storage and search solution for the newly updated ArcSight Enterprise Threat and Risk Management (ETRM) Platform that currently protects more than 100 banks, the government systems of over 30 nations, nearly 55 U.S. Federal agencies, and more than 50 telecommunication service providers. Available as a self-managing appliance, downloadable software or cloud service, Logger 5.0 features major enhancements to search, reporting, storage, form-factor flexibility, and usability.
