FireMon’s Immediate Insight Now Available at No Cost

Enterprise security management company, FireMon, has announced that its Immediate Insight security analytics software is available at no cost. Immediate Insight makes data accessible in a way that enables more of the IT organization to discover and analyze the data in order to accelerate security event triage, improve incident response and perform proactive reconnaissance for threats. Merging machine learning, correlation, and natural language, Immediate Insight allows users to analyze structured and unstructured data promptly, in a simple and, workflow-centric interface. With this, alerts are quickly determined as either a false positive or a threat.

Users of Immediate Insight are enabled to:

  • Automatically correlate SIEM alerts and human data like email with enriched infrastructure data to more quickly assess whether an event is a false positive.
  • Drag multi-gigabyte log files from multiple sources into Immediate Insight to create time-correlated views to accelerate incident response.
  • Search for specific events and behaviors, trends and associations to spot high risk activity that wouldn’t trigger a security alert from a SIEM or other systems.

The full-featured free community version of Immediate Insight, offered on FireMon's website, offers searches of indexes up to 25 million events. Download the community version of Immediate Insight here: www.firemon.com/download.
