Internet Security Systems' SiteProtector application provides scalable, centralized security management and data analysis capabilities for Proventía appliances, Proventía Desktop as well as RealSecure Network and Server solutions. SiteProtector simplifies large-scale deployments through cost-efficient, unified command, control and monitoring, thereby reducing security management demands on staff, network traffic or other operational resources. Event prioritization and correlation enable real-time attack and misuse tracking.

The SiteProtector interface helps administrators work more efficiently through flexible views built around asset grouping and event aggregation. Powerful filters screen for event exceptions and false alerts. In addition, SiteProtector automates Proventía and RealSecure deployments, and enables multiple site management via secure remote administration.

The Introduction to SiteProtector training course provides concepts, methods and practices necessary to successfully use the SiteProtector management tool. The course focuses on hands-on exercises supported by demonstrations, presentations, and lecture. Starting with an introduction to the SiteProtector architecture and the different components, students will learn about the role of each component and how they act in concert to monitor and protect a real-world network. Students will learn how to install and configure SiteProtector as well as how to manage sensors and monitor network assets in the SiteProtector environment.
