– Jeff Gorman, Business Unit Director
Many organizations simply do not have a reliable method for collecting log and event data from key systems within their infrastructure. Historically, systems that collect that comprehensive logging data have either produced a volume of data that made them unrealistic to use for extracting relevant data or have been so expensive to implement in terms of resources and staff that few organizations could justify the investment.
In today’s environment, several organizations face regulatory requirements for log management, event management, file integrity and privileged user monitoring. Whatever the driver – PCI-DSS, SOX, HIPAA, FISMA, NERC CIP, GLBA, GCSx, GPG13, or simply a desire to more proactively plan and track events within the infrastructure, organizations face challenges in meeting these requirements easily, efficiently, and affordably. The cost of acquisition, deployment and ongoing management of disparate solutions, even if they are offered by one vendor, can be substantial.
No matter what the reason for implementing a log management or information monitoring solution, the complexity of installation, operation and ongoing management will go a long way toward determining its success. A solution that can’t be deployed, learned and operated without requiring major resources can become more of a problem than a solution. IT executives need to be assured that what they invest in today will accommodate their immediate organizational needs and those in the future.
Because of these requirements, more businesses are looking for Security Information Event Management (SIEM) systems to improve their business proposition both in terms of value and efficiency.
Distinct from legacy SIEM solutions, LogRhythm fully integrates traditionally separate log management and security event management functions to collect, analyze and correlate log data – with a single console for operating and administering all components. Collecting data from any source, LogRhythm’s SIEM 2.0 platform builds on an advanced data management structure with extensive data enrichment to analyze all log data in real-time. Automated risk-based prioritization, powerful forensics, advanced visualization and alerting in a simple-to-use GUI empowers organizations to gain unprecedented visibility and control over their enterprise IT environment.
A wealth of valuable information can be derived from log data – whether it originates in applications, databases, servers, network devices or endpoint systems. By automating the collection, organization, analysis, archiving and reporting of all log data, LogRhythm enables organizations to easily meet specific requirements, whether driven by internal best practices or one of many compliance regulations. LogRhythm delivers valuable, timely and actionable insights into security, availability, performance and audit-related issues.
LogRhythm appliances come in a variety of models including High Availability solutions that support business continuity and information assurance for LogRhythm deployments. Because of LogRhythm’s distributed, incrementally scalable architecture, deployments can start with a single appliance and scale from there by simply adding appliances. Regardless of the performance, storage or geographic requirements, LogRhythm is architected for flexible and efficient expansion.
LogRhythm is an enterprise-class platform that seamlessly combines Log Management, SIEM, File Integrity Monitoring, and Network & User Monitoring into a single integrated solution. It is highly reliable and cost-effective, and can scale to fit the needs of any enterprise. With LogRhythm, you can invest in a single solution to address requirements and challenges throughout your organization, whether they are related to compliance, security or IT operations.
