Product Report: iT-CUBE agileSI - 70349

Report Details

agileSI is a product which collects SAP security information and provides this information to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools. The initial release supports ArcSight ESM, the market leader in the SIEM market. Beyond extracting the SAP security information, agileSI transforms that information for use in SIEM tools and adds standard configurations to ArcSight ESM which allow you to directly perform analytics. These analytics can be customized, depending on the customer requirements.

agileSI is the second product brought to market by iT-CUBE, a German software vendor, system integrator, and security consulting company which has a long SIEM history. The Munich-based company combined its expertise in SIEM and SAP security to address this problem. The first release of agileSI focuses on the audit rules defined by DSAG (Deutsche SAP Anwendergruppe, the German SAP user group).

iT-CUBE thus provides an innovative solution in the field of SIEM applications. agileSI adds a missing link between SAP security information and SIEM tools which hasn’t been addressed by standard solutions of that type until now. Given that continuous security monitoring for SAP environments is a challenge for all SAP customers and that across-the-stack security monitoring will massively gain momentum, agileSI is a very interesting solution which suits the needs of the market.

Even while the first release is somewhat limited regarding the breadth of standard controls supported – approximately 60% of the standard audit rules for SAP environments defined by the DSAG – and even while customers should carefully evaluate the impact on scalability and the suitability of the user interfaces for large environments, agileSI should provide an immediate benefit to SAP customers who are running ArcSight ESM. agileSI provides deeper insight into SAP security for these environments while also allowing the addition of other analytics, including across-the-stack analytics, by the customer himself, the iT-CUBE professional services, or iT-CUBE third-party partners.

KuppingerCole recommends SAP customers which have ArcSight ESM up and running should evaluate this solution to enhance their SAP security approach. Besides the continuous monitoring, agileSI provides out-of-the-box support for many audits thus reducing the workload of security administrators and auditors.

Security Operations Center

Today, the Security Operations Center (SOC) is at the heart of enterprise security management. It is used to monitor and analyze security alerts coming from the various systems across the enterprise and to take actions against detected threats. However, the rapidly growing number and sophistication of modern advanced cyber-attacks make running a SOC an increasingly challenging task even for the largest enterprises with their fat budgets for IT security. The overwhelming number of alerts puts a huge strain even on the best security experts, leaving just minutes for them to decide whether an [...]
