WhatsUp Event Rover Simplifies Log Management

Standalone Log Management Solution Identifies Problems and Security Threats Faster Than Before 

LEXINGTON, MA –September 8, 2010 Ipswitch Inc.’s Network Management Division, developer of the WhatsUp Gold suite of innovative IT management solutions, today announced that it will be offering its WhatsUp Gold Event Rover, worth £256, free of charge for a limited time period. WhatsUp Gold Event Rover has been designed to enable organisations to collect, analyse, store and report on Windows Event and Syslog files, making it easy to do near real-time security event detection as well as historical compliance assurance and forensics. As a stand-alone solution WhatsUp Event Rover will work with any existing network management solution, making it easier to manage log files.


Server and workstation event logs pile up fast and often organisations are unable to recall or view log files. With WhatsUp Event Rover users can mine log data through a simplified tree-view structure that allows for more accuracy whilst minimising errors.


As log files play a key role in demonstrating compliance with standards and regulations, such as Sarbanes Oxley, it is critical that log files can be reviewed routinely or through spot checks. With WhatsUp Event Rover log file integrity and security are guaranteed as active log files are never deleted or altered, as WhatsUp Event Rover uses a backup copy for review purposes. Security features are further enhanced by enabling users to look for event patterns and report on events that make up an incident.


“Log file management is something that affects many organisations today,” says Ennio Carboni, President of Ipswitch Inc.’s Network Management Division. “Most organisations have a network management system in place, but often these solutions lack the ability to look for log files and report on them. WhatsUp Event Rover has been designed to integrate with existing solutions and enable organisations to carry on using their legacy systems without the need for costly upgrades.”
