Additional features include enhanced console security, flexible storage options and anti-tampering protection

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- GFI Software(TM) today announced that GFI EventsManager(®), the company's award-winning log management software, now includes the established active network and server monitoring capabilities found in the company's popular Network Server Monitor(®) solution. This new functionality, combined with GFI EventsManager's existing log management capabilities, gives IT administrators a holistic view of their infrastructure's performance.

Active network and server monitoring provides real-time, active monitoring of assets, network infrastructure, applications and services. These advanced monitoring checks work in conjunction with GFI EventsManager's log-based monitoring system to track different operational aspects of the IT environment, including the functionality and availability of network protocols, performance of network devices, and usage and performance of server and infrastructure services. This unique combination of features also equips admins with the information required to quickly and easily troubleshoot incidents reported by the active monitoring system.

"Network infrastructure requires permanent monitoring and maintenance to function appropriately," said Calin Ghibu, product manager at GFI Software. "The last thing resource-constrained IT departments need is to track different management solutions for different IT assets. Not only can this become costly, but it takes up valuable time and resources as well. GFI EventsManager equips IT managers with additional tools to manage and monitor the network infrastructure's performance - and does so at a price point they can afford and with a level of simplicity that allows them to reallocate resources to other pressing tasks."

The latest version of GFI EventsManager also includes enhanced console security to help companies comply with industry guidelines requiring that data access is granted on a "need-to-know" basis. IT admins can now enforce discretionary data access by assigning specific computers to each EventsManager user. By doing so, IT can grant users admission into the GFI EventsManager console while limiting their access to only the configuration, reporting and log browsing data coming from the computers they manage.

Additional features in the latest version of GFI EventsManager include:

--  Flexible storage options - EventsManager's database has been enhanced to include physical deletion of event logs in a secure and audited manner. This new feature frees up disk space occupied by deleted events. Adding another layer of flexible storage, IT admins now also have the ability to log data directly to remote storage for data centralization purposes.
--  Anti-tampering protection - In addition to encrypted storage and controlled access to data within the EventsManager console, the solution also now includes the ability to hash log data to further protect against attempts to damage log data from outside the product.
--  Log support by default - A new XML parsing schema, available by default, enables admins to collect, analyze, interpret and store data contained in XML files. An added DHCP text log parsing schema enables audit and monitoring of DHCP IP assignments on Windows(®) DHCP servers.
--  Import/export functionality - EventsManager now includes the ability to import and export events to/from other EventsManager databases based on a schedule, as well as optionally based on filters. IT admins can now move event data between two databases as well.
