Data Loss Prevention Now Easier With New SolarWinds Log & Event Manager
Workstation Edition for Microsoft Windows Devices
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/13 -- According to a recent
SolarWinds survey* of over 160 IT professionals, the No. 1 security
concern and priority is data loss and the prevention of that data
loss. SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and
affordable IT management software, today announced the availability
of SolarWinds Log & Event Manager (LEM) Workstation Edition, which
can help manage data loss on Microsoft(R) Windows(R) workstations at
an affordable price for all IT professionals.
SolarWinds LEM Workstation Edition supports log management,
correlation and analysis from Windows workstations giving IT pros
visibility and control over security including data leak prevention,
operational and policy-driven events happening in real time.
Using its USB Defender Technology, SolarWinds LEM Workstation Edition
monitors usage of USB mass storage devices, wireless devices and
phones plus the processes and files accessed on mass storage devices.
In addition, the USB Defender Technology can automatically detach
devices that IT pros don't want people using -- either by user,
device, or after they've done something suspicious.
SolarWinds Log &Event Manager Workstation Edition Highlights:
-- Aggregate, classify and normalize log data from Windows workstations
-- Perform true, real-time, in-memory, non-linear, multiple event
correlation for advanced incident awareness
-- Alert in real time based on Windows event logs as your workstations
encounter security threats and policy violations
-- USB Defender Technology protects sensitive data with real-time
notification of USB devices and has the ability to block their usage,
as well as built-in reporting to audit USB usage over time
-- Automatically respond to performance issues and security threats with

SolarWinds LEM Workstation Edition is not a new product or a new
version of SolarWinds LEM. It is a new pricing structure that
utilizes a node-based license model, allowing IT pros to extend
real-time log collection, correlation and analysis to Windows
workstations while staying within a planned budget as they deploy and
expand IT infrastructure across multiple datacenters and geographies.
"Recognizing that users may have tens of thousands of workstations
versus the number of servers monitored, we've now made it easier for
IT pros to deploy log analysis across an entire IT infrastructure
cost effectively," said Sanjay Castelino, VP and market leader,
SolarWinds. "Users will still need an instance of SolarWinds Log and
Event Manager, but by paying per workstation, they will no longer
need to pay for the next tier up in order to add more workstations."
The SolarWinds LEM Workstation Edition is available now for Windows
versions including Windows XP(R), Windows Vista(R) and Windows 7.
Pricing for SolarWinds Log and Event Manager starts at $4,995 with
the first year of maintenance included and pricing for the Work
Station Edition starts at $2,495. For more information, visit the
