LogRhythm Axon: Our Vision of a Cloud-Native Platform

A screenshot of the LogRhythm Axon Log Management platform dashboard.

Today is an important day in LogRhythm’s history. We unveiled LogRhythm Axon, our new groundbreaking, cloud-native, security operations platform that easily ingests, enriches, and analyzes multiple log sources. Out of the gate, Axon provides an easy-to-use log management solution. This will help your team achieve seamless visibility across both cloud and on-prem log sources. Unlike the usual suspects, LogRhythm Axon is a brand-new platform — built cloud-native from the ground up with nearly 20 years of industry-leading cybersecurity experience to ensure its success in delivering security-operations outcomes customers care about.

At its core, Axon lightens the load to help your team search for, analyze, and report on potential threats, and meet your security operations center (SOC) requirements. Axon’s intuitive interface collects and enriches disparate logs and makes it easy for analysts to search and analyze data, helping them focus on the work that matters. What’s more, LogRhythm Axon reduces the burden of managing data and the operating infrastructure.

A groundbreaking platform

What makes Axon “groundbreaking?” Unlike other vendors, we can proudly say we didn’t slap a new name on old code or an existing product and just add new features on top of technical debt. We launched a purpose-built platform that was created from scratch that uses modern cloud-based technologies, such as containers and microservices, that allow our team to enhance and develop features faster. That’s not all. Axon was created around the analyst experience. We revamped workflows to maximize user productivity, taking lessons learned from our nearly 20 years of cybersecurity experience and reimagined a better future in a new platform.

With Axon, we’re reducing the time you spend administering they system and collecting and analyzing log data, so you can focus on securing your organization.

Below are some of the features our SaaS platform offers:

  • LogRhythm’s unique Machine Data Intelligence (MDI) Fabric normalizes and enriches log data, and Policy Builder combines policy-driven metadata, automatically mapped metadata, and full-text search; which combined, enables an analyst experience that maximizes ease of use and flexibility
  • Analysts have an easier time accomplishing tasks using guided workflows, reducing their ramp time on the platform
  • Our cloud-native platform enables security teams to focus on threat hunting instead of managing the implementation

LogRhythm’s journeyto a cloud-native platform

This product release marks an important milestone for LogRhythm. It signals the start of a new chapter in our product arsenal and our renewed commitment to customers to innovate our security offerings and bring valued advantages to a crowded market. Reimagining a security operations platform from the ground up was never going to be easy, but building products customers love is supposed to be hard. We’re confident that Axon will be a game changer in the market as the platform evolves to exceed customer requirements.

At LogRhythm, we constantly collect feedback from our users, analysts, and our partners. It’s something we take pride in. Soliciting feedback on LogRhythm’s legacy SIEM was the catalyst for developing Axon, and it served as the foundation for how LogRhythm Axon will look in the future. With nearly 20 years of security experience and learnings from our customers, we’ve built a cloud-native platform that’s designed to improve your team’s effectiveness by making it as easy as possible for them to respond to threats.

Responding to the market and to customers’ needs

LogRhythm is no longer just a SIEM vendor. In response to the changing market and growing demands for cloud-native solutions, LogRhythm has adapted to the industry’s needs. In addition to our classic on-prem LogRhythm SIEM Platform, our product set includes cloud-native solutions with LogRhythm NDR and LogRhythm UEBA, and now with LogRhythm Axon.

As part of our ongoing commitment to customers, we’re dedicated to continuing our innovation and support of the LogRhythm SIEM Platform. Every quarter, like clockwork, we will continue enhancing and investing in the platform to address customers’ needs just like an authentic security partner should. We understand the value the LogRhythm SIEM brings to the market, and we‘ve renewed our commitment and dedication to the product and to our customers who rely on it every day.

With LogRhythm Axon, we are obsessed with continuously improving the way we work to deliver innovation customers care about more predictably and frequently. This is our promise to you and our commitment to respond to customer requests while creating an industry-leading security offering.
