New IT Search feature speeds security investigations and audits with single web interface

Dell-India-logoNew Delhi, India, February 12, 2015: Dell  today announced the latest release of Dell InTrust 11.0, a new IT data analytics solution that gives organizations the power to search and analyze vast amounts of IT data in one place, with real-time insights into user activity across security, compliance and operational teams. The solution’s newest feature, IT Search, is an interactive search and store engine that speeds security, compliance and operations visibility for investigations and audits with instant insight into relationships between data and users. Through a single web interface, IT administrators and security teams for the first time can quickly find answers to all three key compliance and security questions: Who has access to data, how was it obtained and how was it used. With Dell InTrust, IT and security teams can thwart hidden security threats and quickly discover suspicious event trends and anomalies through dynamic breadcrumb investigations into users, groups, files, and events that might otherwise be overlooked and result in possible data breaches.

“Security has always been a key component of every company’s business operation. It is highly important for organizations to keep a track of user and administrator’s activity from data security point of view that might get difficult as it demands raking through massive amount of incongruent data across multiple systems throughout the enterprise. With Dell InTrust 11.0, information security silos will be completely removed, and the IT team will have a clearer view and information about the user’s history and usage of available data. This new solution will help organizations keep their data safe against any internal threat that may harm company’s assets” said Murli Mohan, Director & General Manager at Dell Software Group.  

Security must function as a business enabler and be an organic component of every organization’s daily processes. Forrester Research notes, “To achieve the broad reach and participation necessary for GRC success, set expectations that employees in all levels play a vital role in the program.”1 Tracking user and administrator activity is at the heart of keeping an organization’s data secure and available, while keeping the business continually compliant.  With its new IT search capabilities, InTrust 11.0 eliminates security silos and provides the ‘connectedness’ that enables IT to quickly investigate the relationships between users and the resources they access. From the time users log on until they log off, Dell InTrust provides a uniquely complete and connected view of the security events happening in the environment in real time, delivering tamper-proof information to easily address internal security policies and achieve regulatory compliance. With InTrust, administrators can troubleshoot widespread issues in the event of an incident; security officers can fully conduct security investigations regardless of where data resides or how it is formatted; and compliance officers can easily produce reports validating compliance across multiple systems. Full benefits include:

  • Operational visibility Eliminates information security silos and simplifies analysis of events with an interactive search and store engine
