The SMART LogAnalyzer (SLA) utilizes the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) cloud storage system (Cloudera) for collection and processing of device logs. Cloud storage allows for continuous growth of log storage that enables new cases in log analysis for security purposes. Since cloud storage is built on commodity hardware, and expandable on demand, it reduces the cost to start and grow new data sets.
SLA provides a log repository from many different systems. It is able to make correlations between logs that were never before available, providing revolutionary full insight capabilities into user movements through the network and broad-sweeping analysis of systems. This contains the logs of your entire enterprise, including weaknesses and attack points, making in-house control a top priority.
SLA provides the security necessary to guard and protect these key information assets.
CCG’s threat analyzers (an add-on module to SLA) provide a mechanism to explore and use business intelligence techniques to ferret out relationships among the data sets to further identify strengths, weaknesses, and vulnerabilities.
