What’s New in Security Event Manager

NEW in v6.6! December 11, 2018

Log Filtering

The SEM Events Console included with SEM 6.4 marked our first step in moving away from Flash®. The Events Console is designed to help you interact with your log data easily and quickly through a real-time stream and historical searching. SEM 6.6 includes a brand-new query builder that enables you to build and manage your log filters via the SEM Events Console.

Node Management

This release includes the ability to manage your devices within our new HTML5 user interface. You can add new devices while managing existing SEM devices from the Node Management page. You can also filter or search nodes and manage connectors associated with each agent node.

v6.5 September 12, 2018

Log Forwarding

The new Log Forwarding capability is designed so you can use Security Event Manager (LEM) as a log aggregation point. SEM can now help you normalize, correlate, and forward data to other solutions for further analysis. Users can also identify the specific nodes and log events they’d like to forward.
