Q1 Labs offers log management appliance

Log management technology from Q1 Labs promises quick fix to compliance demands

Q1 Labs this week will unveil details around a new appliance the company says will give IT managers the event and log management capabilities they need to get and stay in compliance with regulatory requirements such as those laid out in the U.S. Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

QRadar SLIM (Simple Log and Information Management) is a stand-alone appliance that installs in a data center and collects event and log data from network and security devices, applications, operating systems and servers. The technology can scale to collect more than 75,000 events per second and generate reports for PCI, FISMA, GLBA and HIPAA, which the vendor says will help IT managers quickly meet compliance needs within their organizations.

"Organizations are under increasing pressure from auditors, partners and upper management to demonstrate that they are protecting information and infrastructure appropriately," writes Forrester Research principal analyst Paul Stamp in recent report. "Some regulations, like PCI DSS, for example, specifically mandate log management."

Q1 Labs comes up against a slew of vendors in the log management market. For instance, security information management vendors such as ArcSight, eIQnetworks, Intellitactics and netForensics also offer log management tools. And log management vendors such as LogLogic, LogRhythm. Prism Microsystems and SenSage develop products to capture and analyze log data for compliance, security and other purposes.

QRadar SLIM is scheduled to be available in mid-November, and pricing for the appliance starts at US$24,000.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
