This new add-on provides threat intelligence data and automatically tags events to ensure that suspicious activity can be identified by simply running a report or search, said SolarWinds in a statement.
“In a new security reality where most security IT pros have to assume the worst — a breach has already occurred — it is imperative to have constant visibility into known threats in order to quickly detect security issues and limit the loss associated with a data breach,” said Nikki Jennings, group vice president, product strategy, SolarWinds.
“With added threat intelligence, SolarWinds Log & Event Manager now enables IT security pros to take immediate action if a threat is detected and proactively monitor for additional vulnerabilities in their environment,” Jennings added.

The updated version automatically update log normalization templates to allow to support the most current vendors and devices, and also compare all traffic monitored by SolarWinds Log & Event Manager against data from a regularly updated threat feed to identify malicious activity.
SolarWinds Log & Event Manager is developed, keeping an aim to quickly identify suspicious activity and pinpoint potential security issues, including malware infections, Phishing attempts and external attacks from hosts.
