Many companies, whether located in the United States or elsewhere, are faced with the challenge of complying with increasingly demanding government regulations such as

  • Sarbanes-Oxley
  • PCI Compliance
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • SB1386 (California)
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act
  • CJIS Security Policy
  • Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) Compliance

and more. Many companies are already using EventSentry to help them to fulfill regulatory compliance. EventSentry helps them become compliant with minimal effort and great flexibility - at a reasonable price.


Due to its flexible design, EventSentry can help you meet many government regulations in a variety of ways:

1. Compliance Modules (Reports)

The built-In compliance reports ease the burden of compliance by listing exactly which individual compliance requirements EventSentry is capable of fulfilling. Then, simply set the required review parameters (e.g. daily, weekly) or schedule the reports as jobs. The following regulatory frameworks are currently covered by the compliance module:

  • PCI-DSS 3.0
  • FISMA
  • HIPAA
  • Sarbanes Oxley (SOX)
  • GLBA
  • ISO 27001:2013

 

2. Compliance Tracking

Compliance tracking intercepts and normalizes security-related events from the Windows event log, and consolidates them in the EventSentry database. This includes Active Directory Change Reporting (e.g. Account Management Tracking) as well as tracking of user activity (e.g. Logon Tracking). In full, compliance tracking includes the following features:

 

3. Real-Time Event Log Monitoring

Since a core feature of EventSentry is to monitor the security event log of Windows-based computers, you can configure EventSentry to perform a variety of tasks including:

  • Immediate Email notification of critical events
  • Immediate Email notification of break-in attempts, configured with thresholds
  • Notification of software errors and failed services
  • Collection and archival of all events in a SQL database, searchable through web reports
  • Archival of event logs in a central location
  • and many more.

 

4. System Health Monitoring

Depending on your specific compliance needs, many of the system health monitoring features also supplement the compliance tracking and event log monitoring features.

EventSentry provides the following additional functionality to achieve compliance:

  • File Integrity Monitoring (FIM)
  • Software & Patch Monitoring, including notification of added software and patches
  • NTP Synchronization
  • Service Monitoring, including notifying of added or removed services
