ArcSight has announced ArcSight ESM 4.0, introducing the industry's first integrated identity and role-based correlation capabilities.

According to the report, "Security information and event management functional requirements are rapidly changing as the technology is adopted broadly to solve compliance and security gaps." The report continues, "A solution that is optimal for the current market will support real time collection and analysis of log data from host systems, security devices and network devices; will support long-term storage and reporting; will not require extensive customisation; and will be easy to support and maintain."
