Description
Bottom rule

IBM Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager addresses concerns around insider threat, compliance management, and audit. It helps you to easily understand your current position with regard to compliance management, audit, and threat.

Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager provides some key functional components:

  • Log Manager - This component collects logs and reports on their contents for you from around the enterprise.

    Using security information and event management (SIEM) W7 methodology, Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager can help you interpret native log data in easily understood language.

    With this information at your fingertips, you can:

    • Quickly drill down into user behavior, system activity, and security information across all platform types
    • Compare log entries to baseline policy to help pinpoint and minimize security problems
    • Deliver reporting to support auditors' evidence requests and security managers' investigatory needs without the need for expensive platform experts
    • Rapidly respond to incidents through the ability to set actions and alerts about privileged user activity, while allowing administrators to perform their jobs
    • Use near real-time analytics to answer and alert on questions like "Alert me when someone fails to login to my key business server several times in five minutes and finally succeeds", or "Alert me when an administrator creates one or more users, gives them elevated privileges, performs one or more privileged activities, and then deletes those users in a 24-hour period".
  • Compliance management modules- These modules provide data classification templates, policy templates and specific reports to monitor the controls for a specific regulation or best practice.

    You can use the optional compliance management modules for ISO 27001 and ISO 2005, Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT), Sarbanes Oxley (SOX), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA), North American Electric Reliability Council-Critical Infrastructure Protection(NERC-CIP), BASEL II (the latest set of banking supervisory rules, replaces the Basel Capital Accord of 1988), and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Separate IBM Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager Management Module Licenses are required.

  • Capabilities for database monitoring - Users of DBMS systems from IBM and other manufacturers now have the ability to leverage the audit and monitoring capabilities of Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager to include these databases into their enterprise compliance management reporting framework.
  • Supports the IT Infrastructure - With additional support provided to include IT network devices, servers, applications, databases, and z/OS®.
  • Delivers Integration with Tivoli security suite - Event source support for support for most Tivoli Security servers completes the integration of the full Tivoli suite of identity and access management products.
  • Built on IBM infrastrcuture platform - Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager now relies on the IBM DB2 platform for its database requirements, Tivoli Directory Server for its user and security management and IBM WebSphere® for application management. With this, IBM delivers a cost-effective, reliable and efficient engine for Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager's compliance management reporting capabilities.

Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager V2.0 no longer supports the following environments:

  • Tivoli Compliance Insight Server on Windows® 2000.
  • Tivoli Compliance Insight Manger Point of Presence on AIX® 4.3.
  • Tivoli Security Operations Manager is not included with Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager V2.0 as Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager V2.0 is now a fully integrated product. Tivoli Security Operations Manager continues to be offered as a stand-alone product for customers specifically wishing to focus on external threat management.

IBM Tivoli Enhanced Value-based Pricing
Bottom rule

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 OS, you are permitted to deploy and run one copy of the licensed OS 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 (anti-virus gateways), content filtering (Web, email), identity and access management, directory servers, network anomaly behavior products, and multi-function 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 Resource Value Unit 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 Resource Value Units (or 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 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

http://www.ibm.com/software/passportadvantage

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®.

Pricing examples

The pricing for Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager (TSIEM) is based on Install and Resource Value Units (RVUs). For each Tivoli Security Information or Event Manager Install and Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager Log Manager Install, customers must also acquire chargeable license components for each event source based on the applicable category: Network Devices; Server; Application and Database Instances and z/OS Instances; Log Management Devices, and Client Devices. The number of chargeable license components is based on the number of event sources in each device category represented in the customer's inventory. For Log Management, all event sources are considered Log Management Devices. 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 charges.

There are eight chargeable license components that may apply in any given installation. There are two license volume discount schedules. The following table illustrates the eight licenses and the volume discount that applies to that license. Resource Value Units are summed through each incremental tier.

Pricing Scenario 1

Transaction 1

In phase 1 of a compliance management installation the customer needs to monitor and store logs for select critical systems. In order to do this they need to monitor and collect logs from 27 servers, 15 firewalls and 10 of their databases.

  • 1 TSIEM Log Manager Install
  • 27 servers
  • 15 firewalls
  • 10 databases

All of the event sources are being used for log management only and will be calculated as TSIEM Log Management Devices (Schedule 1).

Log management gives the capability to collect logs; to store and retrieve those logs; to search and report on the log content. It requires a TSIEM Log Manager Install to support this.

Transaction 2

In phase 2 of their implementation they need to provide alerting and compliance management reporting on their key infrastructure for compliance management with PCI-DSS and Sarbanes Oxley. This now requires them to be monitoring 250 servers, 50 databases, and existing firewalls and switches (100 devices in all). To support alerting they also need to upgrade their TSIEM Log Manager Install and their TSIEM Log Management Devices to full W7 support.

  • Trade up their 27 Log Management Devices to 27 Server (for the Phase 1 servers)
  • Trade up their 10 Log Management Devices to 10 Application and Database Instances and z/OS instances (for the Phase 1 production databases)
  • Trade up their 15 Log Management Devices to 15 Network Devices (for the Phase 1 firewall devices)

Pricing Scenario 3

A federal government agency wants to purchase a Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager installation at each of three divisions to set up independent compliance management reporting for each of these divisions. These divisions want control of their own management system, policy rules, and operations, and will be set up and staffed independently. Division A is going to start by monitoring 200 servers only, division B will start with 100 servers and 45 databases, and division C will be covering 200 network devices, 2,000 servers, 400® databases and applications, and 4 mainframes. All three divisions want to use the ISO27001 Compliance Management Module.

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

The price charged is dependent upon the number of TSIEM Installs and the number of TSIEM Log Manager Installs and the number of event sources monitored regardless of how the data from them is collected. Events or logs may be collected individually from each resource, from a central management server (like ISS SiteProtector™, McAfee ePO), or through a central point of presence. The number of resources monitored is independent of the collection implementation used.

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 require separate entitlements for the resources monitored. Examples are: LPARs on the mainframe, Solaris Zones, Database Instances.

Example A: A customer is collecting Check Point Firewall-1 event logs from 25 firewalls through one Check Point Provider-1 management console connection via an OPSEC API. This counts as 25 Network Devices under Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager licensing. The fact that Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager collects the data via a single OPSEC connection is an implementation detail that doesn't affect the price.

Example B: A customer is collecting Windows Event Logs from 20 servers. These Logs are all collected through the agent on a single Windows server for collection by Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager. For Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager licensing, this counts as 20 Servers.

Example C: A customer is collecting Windows operating system event logs, UDB database audit logs, and SAP application logs all from 10 critical servers. This counts as 10 Servers plus 20 Application and Database Instances and z/OS Instances under Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager licensing.

Example D: 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 Application and Database Instances and z/OS Instances.

Example E: A customer is collecting z/OS logs from four LPARs on a single sysplex. This is counted as four Application and Database Instances and z/OS Instances, one for each LPAR.

Terms and conditions
Bottom rule

The information provided in this announcement letter is for reference and convenience purposes only. The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

This product is only available via Passport Advantage. It is not available as shrinkwrap.

Licensing

IBM International Program License Agreement including the License Information document and Proof of Entitlement (PoE) govern your use of the program. PoEs are required for all authorized use. Part number products only, offered outside of Passport Advantage, where applicable, are license only and do not include Software Maintenance.

This software license includes Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance).

These programs are licensed under the IBM Program License Agreement (IPLA) and the associated Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance, which provide for support with ongoing access to releases and versions of the program. IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

License Information form number

L-RWID-7TCS48

The program's License Information will be available for review on the IBM Software License Agreement Web site

http://www.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf
Limited warranty applies

Yes

Limited warranty

IBM warrants that when the program is used in the specified operating environment, it will conform to its specifications. The warranty applies only to the unmodified portion of the program. IBM does not warrant uninterrupted or error-free operation of the program or that IBM will correct all program defects. You are responsible for the results obtained from the use of the program.

IBM provides you with access to IBM databases containing information on known program defects, defect corrections, restrictions, and bypasses at no additional charge. For further information, consult theIBM Software Support Handbook found at

http://www.ibm.com/support/handbook

IBM will maintain this information for at least one year after the original licensee acquires the program (warranty period).

Program technical support

Technical support of a program product will be available for a minimum of five years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) is in effect. This technical support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. You will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months' notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

Money-back guarantee

If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program and you are the original licensee, you may obtain a refund of the amount you paid for it, if within 30 days of your invoice date you return the program and its PoE to the party from whom you obtained it. If you downloaded the program, you may contact the party from whom you acquired it for instructions on how to obtain the refund.

For clarification, note that (1) for programs acquired under the IBM International Passport Advantage offering, this term applies only to your first acquisition of the program and (2) for programs acquired under any of IBM's On/Off Capacity on Demand (On/Off CoD) software offerings, this term does not apply since these offerings apply to programs already acquired and in use by you.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) with each program license acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
