Security forensics

Monday, 8 March 2004, 2:28 PM EST

As has been stated more frequently than most people care to remember, security in IT is important. It is, invariably, an issue with which each IT manager and CIO has to grapple every day of the year. Whilst the precise nature of said “grappling” might often be difficult to detect by the casual observer it does take place, at least in worried meetings and the minds of all concerned.

When “solutions” are implemented, they usually take the form of some defence appliance or software housed at the perimeter of the organisation. In too many companies, little attention is paid to investigate activity that can be regarded as “suspicious”. Computer Associates (CA) hopes that its eTrust Network Forensics tool will help this to change by providing the detailed information that security investigations require quickly.
