Naples, FL, September 18, 2018CorreLog, Inc., the leader in multi-platform IT security event log management, today announced the general availability of the CorreLog SIEM Correlation Server and zDefender® Visualizer for z/OS, version 5.8.3. This is an upgrade release of the CorreLog Server including new features, documentation updates, minor changes to navigation, and various other improvements. For organizations without a mainframe, CorreLog’s SIEM Correlation Server implements full Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) capability across Windows/UNIX platforms. zDefender® Visualizer for z/OS provides SIEM correlation in real-time from data received from mainframe Z systems.

“Product development for CorreLog is a recurring cycle of listening to client and market demand and embedding the latest improvements,” said George Faucher, CorreLog president and founder. “These updates enhance performance to provide the best speed and functionality for analyzing and responding to cyber threats in real time, across both mainframe and distributed systems.”

CorreLog’s SIEM Correlation Server provides a highly functional and lightweight SIEM tool that collects system log messages and correlates them into understandable cyber threats, alerts, and actions. These alerts can be reduced to actionable “tickets” that are sent to users or a help desk system, which can trigger automatic remediation of incidents.  CorreLog’s zDefender® Visualizer for z/OS is a SIEM system designed for use by z/OS security administrators and system programmers to provide dashboard views of systems’ security and event correlation in real-time.
