Description: Product Announcement: ArcSight SmartConnector Build is now available for download.

HP ArcSight is a leading global provider of security and compliance management solutions. ArcSight SmartConnectors provide advanced event and log data collection and processing capabilities to help enterprises and government agencies gain comprehensive visibility and critical insights into their IT infrastructure across all users, networks, datacenters, and applications. SmartConnectors are updated frequently to add support for new devices and event sources as well as new device versions.

What’s New?

In this release, we are announcing the General Availability (GA) of the following:

Selected SmartConnectors are available in native 64 bits for the first time.

  • This includes some of the most popular connectors, for examples, Windows Unified Connector, the Syslog SmartConnectors and others. 
  • Refer to the document "SmartConnectors Available for 64-Bit Platforms" https://protect724.arcsight.com/docs/DOC-9367
  • The strategic plan is to balance the needs to address ongoing customer requirements for SmartConnector versions updates, feature requests, new connectors, and the migration to native 64 bits native support. The native 64 bits migration will be delivered in a multiple phase. This release represents the first step and SmartConnector team expects this effort will require most of 2014 to complete.
  • If the 64 bits version of the SmartConnector is not available, then please use the existing 32 bits version of the SmartConnectors.  These connectors will continue to work in the compatibility mode with the 64 bit operating system.  
  • The main driver for migrating to 64 bits native binary is that most customer are using and requesting 64 bits operating systems support.
  • The product team do NOT expect performance enhancement nor performance degradation from using the 64 bits connectors.
