Add a new dimension to your ArcSight security logs

HP ArcSight Application View is new technology that retrofits applications with HP Fortify's Runtime™ technology. Application View creates logs of application security events that happen, unifies those logs using the ArcSight Common Event Format (CEF), and feeds them into the ArcSight correlation engine to correlate application events with other security events. This gives you greater visibility, early detection of threats, and the ability to respond to a potential data breach before it happens. Application View includes "out of the box" content for quickly generating audit-quality log reports, compliance reports, and overall IT security and performance reports.


Key features

  • Retrofit virtually any application with logging capability, even custom applications
  • Leverage ArcSight ESM/Express to monitor and correlate application security events
  • Gain insight into user actions that indicate threats to data controlled by applications
  • Extend logging capabilities without needing to change the application itself
  • Save time and reduce costs with out-of-the-box capabilities and reports
