SANTA BARBARA, Calif., June 5 /PRNewswire/ — Novacoast, Inc., an IT professional services and product development firm, announces SentinelRD, a rapid deployment service for Sentinel 6 from Novell(R), Novell's real-time security information and event management (SIEM) solution. Offered as a proof-of-concept fixed-fee implementation of Sentinel 6, SentinelRD is an ideal service for small and medium sized customers that require a basic, scalable SIEM framework to quickly and cost-effectively begin analyzing and correlating real-time security event log information from heterogeneous IT systems.

"As organizations look for consistent ways to address both security and compliance issues, Novacoast's SentinelRD offering is a way of accelerating the time to value for customers quickly, while laying a long-term foundation to address regulatory requirements in an efficient way," says Dipto Chakravarty, Vice President Engineering, Identity and Security Management, Novell Corp. "SentinelRD from Novacoast allows us to extend the advantages of SIEM to smaller organizations looking for a basic, yet effective security and compliance management solution at an affordable price."

Sentinel 6 from Novell automates the process of gathering, analyzing, correlating and reporting on security and compliance data to help customers identify and respond to security incidents and policy compliance violations. It delivers an integrated view of security and compliance events across the entire enterprise — integrating real-time information from devices, applications, identity and access management systems and physical controls into a single console. When a breach or policy violation occurs, Sentinel's built-in remediation workflow enables administrators to take immediate action based on roles, regulatory requirements and business policies — and creates a "system of record" to support both internal and external audit requirements. With their SentinelRD offering, Novacoast implements a framework that includes the configuration of a set of correlation rules to monitor Novell's eDirectory, Novell Identity Manager or other products already in use by the customer.

Novacoast is the originator and primary provider of Rapid Deployments(TM) (RDTM). RDs are the rapid deployment service and software packages of complex technologies for a fixed fee. Methodologies are combined with software content, either code or configuration, which is customized to meet client needs. RD clients participate in site-specific planning sessions, then work with Novacoast engineers in the RD methodology.

Sentinel 6 from Novell is currently shipping. SentinelRD is available now. For more information visit http://www.SentinelRD.com
