The Wedge Reporter Provides “Must Have” Insight To Organizations From The Visibility Of The Application Data That Passes Through Their Network
For networks containing WedgeOS-based systems, management of logged events and data from multiple deployed appliances obtain their biggest value when combined with the Wedge Reporter. With the Wedge Content Security Appliance effectively inspecting and blocking all malware attacks, the Wedge Reporter allows organizations to go one step further; providing visibility into “what” malware is attacking and “which nodes” are being attacked.
The Wedge Reporter, based on Sawmill (a third party log analyzer and reporting tool), is easily configured and operated using a standard web browser. For the purposes of reporting WedgeOS system logs, the reporting tool is configured to use syslog log files, the standard logging solution on Linux-based operating systems.
Key Features of the Wedge Reporter
Consolidates events from WedgeOS appliances with the ability to consolidate events from other, non-WedgeOS appliances
Provides the ability to generate printer-friendly, timely reports, allowing the network administrator to:
- View the network data processing results
- Take actions to adjust and enforce policies
- Measure the effectiveness of the actions
- Quantify progress to management and shareholders
Reports can be customized for logo, colour, etc.
Scheduled delivery of reports via e-mail to select management levels
Multi-language support for global usage
A customizable “look and feel”
Wedge Reporter Interface
The Wedge Reporter provides detailed reporting capabilities and puts the power of an organization’s network traffic data back into the hands of management. With an extensive, yet easy-to-use interface, along with simple-to-configure reporting functionality, an organization can analyze activities within its network with much greater granularity, and insight. The Wedge BeSecure Web Security Appliance, combined with a Wedge Reporter, allows an organization to see what it needs to see!
Bringing Transparency To Your Network Security
Implementing a Wedge Content Security solution provides the “weapons” for the battle against malware. The Wedge Reporter complements and greatly enhances the abilities of an organization’s network security manager by providing the power to “see” what malware is attacking and which nodes are being attacked, thus providing the “strategy” for the war.
By being able to pinpoint areas of attack within the network, along with improper resource utilization, the Wedge Reporter empowers an organization’s management to employ and enforce internet usage policies, enabling web usage to be more efficient as a business tool rather than simply a business expense.
