2. ManageEngine GDPR Compliance Handbook

ManageEngine have published a GDPR compliance handbook which is available to download. With just a little over a year left before introduction, many organisations are scrambling to find ways to comply with the new GDPR mandate.

The handbook is available from this link.

The handbook includes information about 
EventLog Analyzer. EventLog Analyzer is a cost effective Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution. Using EventLog Analyzer software, organisations can automate the entire process of managing logs by collecting, analysing, searching, reporting, and archiving from one central location.

EventLog Analyzer can be combined with ADAudit Plus by using the Log360 console. Log360 is an integrated solution that combines EventLog Analyzer and ADAudit Plus into a single console to help you manage your Active Directory auditing and network security. Log360 was included in Garner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for SIEM tools.

3. New Product - Patch Manager Plus

A stand-alone patch management product has been released - Patch Manager Plus. Patch Manager Plus is an automated patch management application that lets IT teams patch Windows, Mac, Linux and third-party applications from a single interface. Deploy patches seamlessly across desktops, laptops, servers, roaming devices and virtual machines. Automate patch management life cycle from detection to deployment of patches. Patch Manager Plus can automatically:
