Security Agent for UNIX 7.4 is released

NetIQ is pleased to announce the availability of NetIQ Security Agent
for UNIX 7.4 for all customers worldwide as of April 11, 2014.

*Product Information*

Securing and monitoring the configuration of your UNIX and Linux
environment can be expensive and time-consuming due to the numbers of
platform variants rolled out in typical enterprise environments.
Especially when you and your staff face tight budgets and escalating
security threats:

- Deficits in staff knowledge concerning UNIX and Linux security and
system expertise
- Managing various operating systems including Red Hat, AIX, HP-UX,
Solaris, and SUSE Linux
- Controlling access to privileged commands and sensitive resources
- Intrusion detection and response systems to handle both real and
potential security breaches

The NetIQ Security Agent for UNIX helps you effectively address these
challenges by enabling rich data capture and analytics for your UNIX and
Linux environments in a consistent way across the NetIQ Security
portfolio of products:

- NetIQ Change Guardian
- NetIQ Secure Configuration Manager
- NetIQ Security Manager (limited support in this version)
- NetIQ Sentinel

*NetIQ Delivers Faster, Simpler Identification of Threats from
Privileged Users*

Improvements in NetIQ Security Agent for UNIX 7.4 help security teams to
rapidly identify and respond to potential threats and compliance gaps –
across a broader set of IT platforms.

monitoring directly to your Sentinel environment. For information
