Product overview of InTrust
Your organization’s most valuable asset is its data and the users that have access to it — but you’re only as secure as your user workstations. Collecting, storing and analyzing all user and privileged account data generally requires large amounts of storage, time-consuming collection of event data and in-house expertise about the event data collected. That’s where we come in.
Only with Quest InTrust, you can monitor all user workstation and administrator activity from logons to logoffs and everything in between. Slash storage costs with 20:1 data compression, and store years of event logs from Windows, UNIX/Linux servers, databases, applications and network devices. InTrust real-time alerting enables you to immediately respond to threats with automated responses to suspicious activity.
Collect and store all native or third-party workstation logs from various systems, devices and applications in one, searchable location with immediate availability for security and compliance reporting. InTrust delivers a unified view of Windows event logs, UNIX/Linux, IIS and web application logs, PowerShell audit trails, endpoint protection systems, proxies and firewalls, virtualization platforms, network devices, custom text logs, as well as Quest Change Auditor events.
Protect your workstations from modern cyberattacks, such as pass-the-hash, phishing or ransomware, by monitoring user and administrator activity — from logons to logoffs and everything in between. Collect and store all essential details of user access, such as who performed the action, what that action entailed, on which server it happened and from which workstation it originated.
Consolidate cryptic event logs from disparate sources into a simple, normalized format of who, what, when, where, where from and whom to help you make sense of the data. Syslog data, in particular, differs drastically from application to application. With InTrust, you can detect structured data inside syslog events and parse this data correctly. Unique, full-text indexing makes long-term event data easily searchable for fast reporting, troubleshooting and security investigation.
Collect and store massive volumes of data in a highly-compressed repository, 20:1 with indexing and 40:1 without, so you can save on storage costs by up to 60% and ensure continuous compliance with HIPAA, SOX, PCI, FISMA and more. Additionally, one InTrust server can process up to 60,000 events per second with 10,000 agents writing event logs simultaneously, giving you more efficiency, scalability and substantial hardware cost savings. And if you need more volume, you can simply add another InTrust server and divide the workload — scalability is virtually limitless.
Watch for unauthorized or suspicious user activity, such as file creation beyond threshold limits, using file extensions of known ransomware attacks or fishy PowerShell commands. Respond to threats immediately with real-time alerts. InTrust enables you to easily trigger automated responses to suspicious events, like blocking the activity, disabling the offending user, reversing the change and/or enabling emergency auditing.
Protect event log data from tampering or destruction by creating a cached location on each remote server where logs can be duplicated as they are created.
Slash your annual SIEM licensing costs with InTrust connectors for Splunk, IBM QRadar and Microfocus ArcSight. Store long-term event log data with InTrust, and filter and forward only relevant data to your existing SIEM solution for real-time, security analytics.
Leverage the valuable insights from all of your Quest security and compliance solutions in one place. With IT Security Search, you can correlate data from InTrust, Change Auditor, Enterprise Reporter, Recovery Manager for AD, and Active Roles in a Google-like, IT search engine for faster security incident response and forensic analysis. Easily analyze user entitlements and activity, event trends, suspicious patterns and more with rich visualizations and event timelines.
Easily convert investigations into multiple report formats, including HTML, XML, PDF, CSV and TXT, as well as Microsoft Word, Visio and Excel. Schedule reports and automate distribution across teams or choose from a vast library of predefined best practice reports with built-in event log expertise. With data import and consolidation workflows, you can even automatically forward a subset of data to SQL Server for further advanced analysis.
