Overview

Security information and event management (SIEM) is a primary concern of CIOs and CSOs in many enterprises and organizations. There is a need to centralize security-relevant events and analyze the consolidated data to obtain valuable security and compliance insights.

IBM offers two complementary perspectives on SIEM:

  • A real-time, network event-oriented management dashboard that facilitates attack recognition and security incident management
  • An information analysis dashboard to monitor how well an organization adheres to its security and governance policies

IBM Tivoli® Security Information and Event Manager V1.0 is comprised of two products that work closely together to help realize the full promise of enterprise SIEM: IBM Tivoli Security Operations Manager V4.1 and IBM Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager V8.5. Now you can centralize log collection and event correlation across the enterprise, and can leverage an advanced compliance dashboard and regulatory compliant reports to link security events and user behavior to corporate policies.

Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager V1.0 delivers a foundation from which to address your SIEM requirements — now and into the future. As a result, IT organizations can lower their exposure to security breaches; control the costs of collecting, analyzing, and reporting on compliance related events; and manage the complexity of heterogeneous technologies and infrastructures. IBM Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager offers end-to-end capabilities including:

  • Security compliance dashboard
  • Security operations dashboard for security incident management
  • Real-time log aggregation, correlation, and analysis of security incidents
  • IT operations integration
    • Recognize, investigate, and respond to security incidents automatically
    • Streamline incident tracking, handling, and resolution
  • Mainframe, operating system, application, and database audit analysis
  • Privileged user monitoring and auditing (PUMA)
  • Log management reporting

Description

Security breaches can have serious, measurable consequences: lost revenue, downtime, damage to reputation, damage to IT assets, theft of proprietary or customer information, cleanup and restoration costs, and potential litigation costs. Additionally, an IT organization should be able to quickly prove that their resources are under appropriate access control and critical information has not been tampered. To help reduce these risks and operational costs, security organizations want the capability to identify attacks quickly, react swiftly, and provide a platform that quickly reports on the security status of the network and resources.

IBM Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager automates many of the repetitive, time and expertise-intensive activities required for effective security and compliance operations. The result is an efficient, cost-effective approach to security operations.

Facilitate compliance efforts

Tivoli Security information and Event Manager offers a robust enterprise audit dashboard, in contrast to solutions that only collect native logs or ones that cannot link operational data to the policy-based analysis that auditors need. From this dashboard, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and auditors obtain a single view of relevant activities in the enterprise.

At a glance, they can see how much activity has been logged and compare users' profiles with the information they are accessing. This enterprise audit dashboard draws on the W7 methodology, enabling your users to interpret native log data using easily understood language, for example, who, did what, on what, when, where, where from, and where to.

The enterprise audit dashboard also helps you view policy violations over time. Additionally, you can leverage log databases that help you meet varying reporting and compliance requirements to address the needs of your business. For example, you may want log databases to be structured by department or technology type.

Furthermore, Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager offers an "at a glance" log continuity report that helps you to demonstrate to auditors that you collect each and every log as promised.

To facilitate compliance management efforts with specific requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley and the Healthcare Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the solution includes a broad range of management modules. Each module provides extremely detailed help.

  • An asset classification template shows the classes of information, people, and assets in your enterprise that are affected — using the vocabulary employed by the regulation or best practice.
  • A policy template measures event data against a custom policy that recommends who should be allowed to access regulated information and how much they should be able to do with the data.
  • A report center draws on the asset classification and policy templates to provide dozens of relevant compliance management reports.

Help protect intellectual property and privacy

With access to sensitive and financial data, and the ability to make changes that can cause operational outages, privileged users with extensive access across applications and platforms can perform accidental or malicious actions that violate company policies and lead to incidents of intellectual property theft and identity theft. Increasingly, auditors may require you to prove that you can monitor and audit access to critical or sensitive corporate data.

At the same time, the work of privileged users can be critical to your business success. Your strategy for monitoring, reporting on, and investigating their activities should not impede their productivity.

Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager helps you audit behavior of users across your enterprise. Privileged user monitoring and auditing capabilities include a dashboard that allows you to drill down to detailed, easily understood reports, where you can see who in your organization accesses vital information assets. Rather than read cryptic logs, you can view normalized data that has been synchronized and classified into logical groups across systems. Exceptional events are flagged according to their risk severity so that you can concentrate on the ones with the greatest importance. The data collection and analysis is done without interfering with the authorized activities of privileged users.

To further protect sensitive data, Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager includes the ability to audit databases and mainframes, where database and system administrators have extensive access that should be monitored. The solution offers much more than basic syslog feeds; it collects and interprets native audit logs to facilitate compliance efforts. Additionally, the Tivoli SIEM solution links user information to user names, groups, and more. IBM also enables you to integrate SIEM with Tivoli identity and access management solutions. By viewing identity information and security events in conjunction with each other, you can better understand — for example — who is giving users access and changing their permissions and what they do with that access and those permissions.

Manage security operations effectively and efficiently

Monitoring thousands of devices throughout your enterprise, correlating events, and honing in on network risks represent a potentially enormous task for your IT staff — one that can take a substantial amount of manual effort. Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager solution includes a security operations dashboard that gives security managers a single console, with a view of correlated security events from diverse devices across the enterprise infrastructure. IT staff can drill down to identify, investigate, and manage exceptional events, threats, and misuse.

Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager helps you accurately detect threats to the enterprise by combining complementary correlation techniques. Unlike security management platforms that rely primarily on rules-based correlation, Tivoli Security and Information Event Manager also offers statistical, vulnerability, and susceptibility correlation methods as different methods are better suited to different types of attacks and misuse.

Once an incident is detected, the dashboard facilitates the entire incident management process, from initial detection and prioritization to one-click investigation and escalation, and finally through to incident remediation activities. Drawing on best practices for incident management, Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager tracks these activities so that the compliance team can use the information to determine metrics for success.

IBM can also help you integrate these security operations capabilities with the rest of your IT operations, including network operations, risk management and service management. As a result, you can leverage other IT information and processes in your security efforts and, conversely, use correlated security information in broader IT operations dashboards and solutions.

Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager components

In order to install Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager, it is important to understand its architecture and a few major components:

  • Tivoli Security Operations Manager V4.1
    • Central Management System (CMS)
    • Event Aggregation Module (EAM)
  • Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager V8.5
    • Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager Enterprise Server
    • Compliance modules
    • Collectors
    • Agents

Central Management System is the hub that coordinates all aspects of the Tivoli Security Operations Manager system, bringing together event datastreams from all of the EAMs deployed in the network. It is here that the event data is correlated and analyzed. Event correlation and threat determination require a combination of embedded logic and configurable rules to correlate events while determining the threat level of each event. The CMS maintains a running subset of the correlated event data for real-time display, while directing the correlated event datastream to the archiver for continuous storage. Both real-time and continuing data is used in presenting relevant information through the user interface and reporting module.

The EAM gathers event data from the various network security devices, through agents (universal collection module), or agentless, when a standard protocol exists. The EAM then normalizes, filters, batches, and transmits that data to the CMS. The EAM is configurable to gather data from many, if not all of the currently deployed security devices deployed in the enterprise network. This data is gathered using conduits designed to communicate with each security device using its native protocol, such as syslog, SNMP, OPSEC, or by ASCII or XML log files. By communicating in the device's native protocol, configuration of the EAM and the devices providing the raw data is minimized. The stream of event data coming from multiple deployed devices is then normalized to provide a common event format. This normalization process creates a common language that can be used by the Tivoli Security Operations Manager system in filtering, correlating, and presenting of the data. It is the first step in creating relevant information from raw data.

Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager server is the central point to receive audit and user log data, to be collected and analyzed for compliance. The server then normalizes this diverse data using a W7 methodology.

Collectors are able to gather audit data and logs from the same various network devices, operating systems, and applications through agents or agentless when a standard protocol exists.

Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager provides the following major functional applications:

  • Log Management — the ability to securely, reliably and verifiably collect original log data and store that in an online archive. Logs can be retrieved for further analysis using specific tools, or (on an enterprise server) the user can search for specific terms in the logs using the depot investigation tool.
  • Reporting — the iView interactive reporting tool provides the user with many standard reports that cover the daily aspects of monitoring and reporting on user activity across your monitored IT infrastructure.
  • Policy Generator — creating a first cut policy from already collected event data provides a quick start way to get started using Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager.
  • Scoping — where data privacy is of explicit concern the scoping application can control access to report data down to the field level.

Tivoli Compliance Insight Manager compliance management modules offer a preset set of templates to facilitate the configuration of the correlation rules and reports.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing

IBM Tivoli software products are priced using IBM Tivoli's Enhanced Value-Based Pricing. The Enhanced Value-Based Pricing system is based upon the IBM Tivoli Environment- Managed Licensing Model, which uses a managed-environment approach — whereby price is determined by what is managed rather than the number and type of product components installed.

For example, all servers monitored with IBM Tivoli's monitoring product (IBM Tivoli Monitoring) require entitlements sufficient for those servers. Other Tivoli products may manage clients, client devices, agents, network nodes, users, or other items, and are licensed and priced accordingly.

Unlike typical systems management licensing models that require entitlements of specific software components to specific systems, the IBM Tivoli Environment-Managed Licensing Model provides the customer flexibility to deploy its IBM Tivoli software products within its environment in a manner that can address and respond to the customer's evolving architecture. That is, as the architecture of a customer's environment changes, the customer's implementation of IBM Tivoli software can be altered, as needed, without affecting the customer's license requirements (as long as the customer does not exceed its entitlements to the software).

Under Enhanced Value-Based Pricing, licensing and pricing of server-oriented applications are determined based upon the server's use in the customer's environment. Typically, such applications are licensed and priced in a manner that corresponds to each installed and activated processor of the server managed by the IBM Tivoli application to help correlate price to value while offering a simple solution.

Where a server is physically partitioned, this approach is modified. This partitioning technique is the approach used with systems that have either multiple cards or multiple frames, each of which can be configured independently. For servers capable of physical partitioning (for example, IBM System p™ Scalable POWERparallel Systems® servers, Sun Ultra servers, and HP Superdome servers), an entitlement is required for each processor in the physical partition being managed by the Tivoli application. For example, assume that a server has 24 processors installed in aggregate. If this server is not partitioned, entitlements are required for all 24 processors. If, however, it is physically partitioned into three partitions, each containing eight processors, and Tivoli products were managing only one of the three partitions, then entitlements would be required for the eight processors on the physical partition managed by the IBM Tivoli application.

For servers with virtual or logical partitions, entitlements are required for all installed and activated processors on the server. For each IBM Tivoli application managing a clustered environment, licensing is based on the cumulative number of installed and activated processors on each server in the cluster. Where the cluster includes physically partitioned servers, the considerations described above concerning physically partitioned servers apply as well.

Enhanced Value-Based Pricing recognizes the convergence of RISC and UNIX®, and Microsoft Windows and Intel technologies, in order to simplify your licensing requirements, and to provide a smoother, more scalable model. Pricing and licensing does not differentiate between non-System z™ server platforms or operating systems. For some products, this platform neutrality extends to System z and other host servers as well.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing terminology definitions

Applications and databases instances

A license entitlement is required for each instance of the application being connected. Applications and databases refer to the programs instances running on a server operating system, which provide a source of security events and logs. Examples of applications include, but are not limited to SAP, Siebel, and Exchange. Examples of databases include, but are not limited to DB2, Oracle, and Sybase.

Client device or client

A client device is a computing device that requests the execution of a set of commands, procedures, or applications from another computer system that is typically referred to as a server. Multiple client devices may share access to a common server. A client device generally has some processing capability or is programmable to allow a user to do work. Examples include, but are not limited to, notebook computers, desktop computers, desk side computers, technical workstations, appliances, automated teller machines, point-of-sale terminals, tills and cash registers, and kiosks.

Install

An install is a copy or instance of the main managing program in the enterprise.

Instance

An instance is the occurrence of something in the enterprise. For example, if you have acquired an application instance authorization for an application, you are permitted to deploy and run one copy of the licensed application on one machine or LPAR. Another example would be if you have acquired an operating system instance authorization for an operating system, you are permitted to deploy and run one copy of the licensed operating system on one machine or LPAR.

Network node

Network nodes include routers, switches, hubs, and bridges that contain a network management agent. A single network node may contain any number of interfaces or ports.

Network security device

Network security device is any network-based security appliance or server running network security based software, that provides a source of security events or logs. Examples include, but are not limited to firewalls, application firewalls, intrusion detection systems, intrusion protection systems, virtual private networks (VPNs), threat protection products (antivirus gateways), content filtering (Web, e-mail), identity and access management, directory servers, network anomaly behavior products, and multifunction security appliances.

Resource Value Unit (RVU)

A resource is the measurement for program license entitlements which is based upon the quantity of the specific designated measurement used for a given program. A RVU is a pricing charge metric of IBM Tivoli's Enhanced Value-Based Pricing, which uses a managed-environment approach whereby the applicable license fee is based on what is managed. Whenever the designated measurement is a resource, not all resources require the same number of RVUs. RVU schedules are located in the Pricing examples section.

Server

A server is a computer system that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications to one or more user or client devices over a network. A Proof of Entitlement (PoE) must be obtained for each server on which the program or a component of the program is run or for each server managed by the program. Where blade technology is employed, each blade is considered a separate server.

Standby or backup systems

For programs running or resident on backup machines, IBM defines three types of situations: cold, warm and hot. In cold and warm situations, a separate entitlement for the copy on the backup machine is normally not required and typically no additional charge applies. In a hot backup situation, the customer needs to acquire other license or entitlements sufficient for that server. All programs running in backup mode must be solely under the customer's control, even if running at another enterprise's location.

As a practice, the following are definitions and allowable actions concerning the copy of the program used for backup purposes.

Cold: A copy of the program may reside, for backup purposes, on a machine as long as the program is not started. There is no additional charge for this copy.

Warm: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine and is started, but is idling, and is not doing any work of any kind. There is no additional charge for this copy.

Hot: A copy of the program may reside for backup purposes on a machine, is started, and is doing work. The customer must acquire a license or entitlements for this copy and there will generally be an additional charge.

Doing work includes, for example, production, development, program maintenance, and testing. It also could include other activities such as mirroring of transactions, updating of files, synchronization of programs, data or other resources (for example, active linking with another machine, program, database or other resource, and so on), or any activity or configurations that would allow an active hot switch or other synchronized switch over between programs, databases, or other resources to occur.

In the case of a program or system configuration that is designed to support a high availability environment by using various techniques (for example, duplexing, mirroring of files, or transactions, maintaining a heartbeat, active linking with another machine, program, database, or other resource), the program is considered to be doing work in the hot situation and a license or entitlement must be purchased.

Value Units

A Value Unit is a pricing charge metric for program license entitlements, which is based upon the quantity of a specific designated measurement used for a given program. Each program has a designated measurement. The most commonly used designated measurements are processor cores and MSUs. However, for select programs, there are other designated measurements such as servers, users, client devices, and messages. The number of Value Unit entitlements required for your specific implementation of the given program must be obtained from a conversion table associated with the program. You must obtain a PoE for the appropriate number of Value Unit entitlements for your implementation. The Value Unit entitlements of a given program cannot be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with Value Unit entitlements of another program. Whenever the designated measurement is a processor core, not all processors require the same number of Value Unit entitlements. To determine the number of Value Unit entitlements required, refer to the processor Value Unit conversion table on the Passport Advantage Web site

Passport Advantage

Through the Passport Advantage Agreement, you may receive discounted pricing based on their total volume of eligible products, across all IBM brands, acquired worldwide. The volume is measured by determining the total Passport Advantage points value of the applicable acquisitions. Passport Advantage points are only used for calculating the Entitled Passport Advantage discount.

To determine the required IBM Tivoli product configuration under Passport Advantage, the IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-Based Pricing Model applies. The customer's environment is evaluated on a per-product basis.

Use the following two-step process to determine the total Passport Advantage points value:

  1. Analyze your environment to determine the number of charge units for a product. The quantity of each product's part numbers to be ordered is determine by that analysis.
  2. Order the Passport Advantage part numbers. A Passport Advantage point value, which is the same worldwide for a specific part number regardless of where the order is placed, is assigned to each IBM Tivoli product part number. The Passport Advantage point value for the applicable part number, multiplied by the quantity for that part number, will determine the Passport Advantage points for that IBM Tivoli product part number. The sum of these Passport Advantage points determines the Passport Advantage point value of the applicable IBM Tivoli product authorizations which then may be aggregated with the point value of other applicable Passport Advantage product acquisitions to determine the total Passport Advantage points value.

The discounted pricing available through Passport Advantage is expressed in the form of Suggested Volume Prices (SVPs), which vary depending on the SVP level. Each SVP level is assigned a minimum total Passport Advantage point value, which must be achieved, in order to qualify for that SVP level.

Media packs and documentation packs do not carry Passport Advantage points and are not eligible for SVP discounting.

For additional information on Passport Advantage, refer to the following

The following Passport Advantage part number categories may be orderable:

  • License and Software Maintenance 12 Months — This is the product authorization with maintenance to the first anniversary date.
  • Annual Software Maintenance Renewal — This is the maintenance renewal for one anniversary that applies when a customer renews their existing coverage period prior to the anniversary date at which it expires.
  • Software Maintenance Reinstatement 12 months — This is for customers who have allowed their Software Maintenance to expire, and later wish to reinstate their Software Maintenance.
  • Media packs — These are the physical media, such as CD-ROMs, that deliver the product's code.
  • Documentation packs — These contain printed documentation such as the User's Guide and Release Notes®.

The pricing for Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager software follows IBM's Enhanced Value-Based model with an additional volume-based discount schedule for each of its components, including the Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager installs, the Compliance Management Modules, and the adapter components for each type of resource, device or endpoint monitored by the customer using Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager (each a Device).

All Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager infrastructure, collection capabilities, data classification, correlation capabilities, security policy rules, incident management functions, user interfaces, storage capabilities, and reporting capabilities are included in the Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install pricing model. Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install core components include the Central Management Servers (CMSs), Event Aggregation Modules (EAMs), Collectors, Enterprise Servers, standard servers, security dashboards, reporting, and report designer application. Any number of Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install core components can be copied and installed, as needed, to handle scalability and performance when monitoring devices using Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager.

For each Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install, customers must also acquire adaptor components for each device based on the applicable device category: network security devices; servers instances; network nodes; application and database instances; z/OS LPAR instances, and desktop clients. The number of chargeable adaptor components is based on the number of original, unique sources of event and log inputs in each device category represented in the customer's inventory. There are no additional charges based on how data is collected by Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager, whether via a centralized management server, API, agent, or agentless technology. All of the data collection options that Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager supports (including agent based, agentless, SSH, ODBC, XML, Syslog, SNMP, JDBC, text file, OPSEC, and Cisco IDS) are included and do not affect pricing. All fractional RVU totals are rounded up to the next whole number.

Optional Compliance Management Modules can be purchased to provide specialized reports for several different regulations.

To provide some clarification of monitored device categories listed above, and which products apply to them, review the pricing examples and details below. Also there are a few pricing instances that may not be clear from the definitions provided above. For example, client represents sources of logs that come from end clients (personal firewall, antivirus) and the applicable license fee is based on the number of unique endpoints, independent of how Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager collects the information. Server Instance represents a unique instance of native operating system logs, of which a physical hardware server may have several, if running virtualization software. Host-based intrusion protection and security products for servers, such as IBM ISS Proventia Server, Cisco Security Agent, or Tripwire, are counted as network nodes when calculating the applicable license fees. Following are some examples with more detail.

Pricing Scenario 1

A customer wants to purchase Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager software to set up a Security Operations Center (SOC) for a division that is opening a new electronic commerce portal, and they will have to show compliance with PCI regulations.

Pricing Scenario 2

A federal government agency wants to purchase a Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager installation for three divisions so Security Operation is run independently. Each division wants control of its own management system, compliance tracking, security policies, security correlation rules, and operations; and will be set up and staffed independently. Division A is going to start by monitoring 200 network security devices and 300 network nodes only; Division B will start with 100 network security devices, 200 network nodes, 500 desktop clients, and 1,000 servers; Division C will be covering 200 network security devices, 2,000 servers, 12 databases, 2 applications, 10,000 clients, 9 z/OS LPARs and 3,000 network nodes. Additionally, Division C needs to provide periodic reports on compliance with ISO17799 regulations.

Additional Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager pricing details, interpretations, and examples

The license fee charged is dependent upon the number of unique resources monitored regardless of how the data from them is collected. Events or logs may be collected individually from each resource or from a central management server (like ISS SiteProtector, McAfee ePO, and Juniper NSM). The license fee is based on the number of original event sources, independent of the collection implementation. Examples of customer environments and interpretations on quantifying resources are listed below.

Note 1: A Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager license for an event source includes events only from that individual server log, application log, or database log.

Note 2: For platforms that support partitioning, each individual partition is considered to be a separate event source. Examples are: LPARs on the mainframe, Solaris zones, database instances.

Note 3: Final RVUs to order are rounded up to the next whole number. Partial or fractional RVUs can not be entered or tracked in the entitlement system.

Example A: A customer is collecting Check Point Firewall-1 event and audit logs from 25 firewalls through one Check Point Provider-1 management console connection via an OPSEC API. This counts as 25 network security devices for calculating RVUs. The fact that the Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager software collects the data via a single OPSEC connection is an implementation detail that doesn't affect the applicable license fee.

Example B: A customer is collecting Windows event and audit logs from 200 servers. These logs have all been forwarded to a single Windows Domain Server for collection by the Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager software. For Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager software licensing, this counts as 200 Server instances.

Example C: A customer is collecting Windows operating system event and audit logs, Tivoli Security Compliance Manager alerts, and SAP application audit logs all from 10 critical servers. This counts as 10 servers, 10 applications, and 10 network security devices under Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager software licensing.

Example D: A customer is collecting events from 10,000 client systems running Proventia desktop, via a single SiteProtector system. The same 10,000 client systems are running McAfee antivirus, and want to collect these logs via a single McAfee ePO server. This counts as 10,000 clients under Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager licensing.

Example E: A customer is collecting Windows operating system event logs and UDB database audit logs from two UDB instances on a single server. This counts as one server plus two databases, one for each database instance.

Example F: A customer is collecting z/OS logs from four LPARs on a single sysplex. This is counted as four z/OS event source licenses, one for each LPAR.

Example G: A federal government agency acquires Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager for use in two divisions, each running its security operations independently. Each division wants control of its own Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install in order to control its unique security correlation rules, security policies, auditing, compliance reporting, and security operation customization. Division A will start by monitoring 200 network security devices and 300 network nodes only. Division B will start by monitoring 100 network security devices, 200 network nodes, 500 desktop clients, and 1,000 servers.

Division A will buy:

  • An entitlement for a single Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install
  • Entitlements for 200 network security devices
  • Entitlements for 300 network nodes

Division B will buy:

  • An entitlement for a single Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install
  • Entitlements for 100 network security devices
  • Entitlements for 200 network nodes
  • Entitlements for 500 desktop clients
  • Entitlements for 1,000 servers

Later, Division B seeks to expand its Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install to handle performance in monitoring its devices. Division B can achieve performance improvements by installing two more CMS components, five more EAM components, and two more standard servers. Division B also seeks to monitor 200 additional network security devices, and to create compliance reports.

Division B will have to buy:

  • Entitlements for 200 additional network security devices
  • Entitlements for 1 Compliance Management Module

Division B will not have to acquire additional Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install entitlements because it can add the additional CMS, EAM, and standard server components using the original Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager install.
