HBGary, Inc. has announced that its host based Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) solution Active Defense is now HP Enterprise Security’s ArcSight SIEM solution. The press release for the recent integration can be found atMarketWatch.com.
The integration of these two leaders in their respective product categories is seen as huge bonus to those already using the two solutions. For those not using the two solutions, it is a huge incentive to look into building a layered security perimeter with these two products as key components.
The two products will integrate via ArcSight’s Common Event Format (CEF). Now that Active Defense is CEF certified it will be able to use the open log management standard to more tightly integrate with ArcSight and more easily pass information to the SIEM solution for correlation with other security information and events.
