Snare for Irix Snare Agent for Irix
Snare for Irix provides front end filtering, remote control, and remote distribution for Irix audit data, interfacing with the underlying SGI "Security Audit Trail" (SAT/SATD).

Snare for Irix can be used as a standalone auditing tool, or can send data to the Snare Server for analysis and storage.

InterSect Alliance have developed software that interfaces with the Irix auditing subsystem to collect, and select audit log information based on a series of user-defined filters. The agent can then send the converted data back to a central location over the network (via UDP) in real-time, allowing security administrators to implement a centralised audit collection, analysis and archive facility with minimal audit client resource utilisation.

Snare for Irix also provides a remote control facility, and user account snapshot tool, via a micro embedded web server.

Snare is currently used by hundreds of thousands of individuals, and organisations worldwide. Snare for Irix is being developed for customers in the Financial, Defence, AeroSpace, and Intelligence organisations to meet elements of local and federal security requirements, such as:
  • ACSI 33
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • Sarbanes Oxley (SOX)
  • C2 / CAPP
