Getting data into your security information and event (SIEM) instance is crucial, and LogRhythm is highly focused on making it easy to do that.
As part of our latest quarterly product release, LogRhythm SIEM version 7.15 builds on the innovation we delivered in October 2023 and now supports managing additional Beats from the Web Console. The latest release features platform enhancements including simplifying Windows Event log onboarding and improving the analyst workflows when reviewing alarm notifications. It also includes new in-app LogRhythm SIEM tutorials, and new and updated supported log sources. Read on for a deeper dive into the latest LogRhythm SIEM release.
Save Time Onboarding New Log Sources in the Web Console
At LogRhythm, we want to make the work for administrators and analysts as easy as possible.
That’s why we’ve expanded the number of Beats administrators can manage from the Web Console. By onboarding log sources in the Web Console, you can cut your Beat Administration workload in half. In the latest release, LogRhythm now supports management for six additional Beats including:
- Gmail Message Tracking
- Qualys FIM
Last quarter, LogRhythm introduced a new workflow to onboard data in the Web Console, bringing the process into a simple wizard-driven experience. This experience makes it easier to get data into the system and expedites the onboarding process. It expedites the onboarding of LogRhythm Beats and reduces the need to switch between the Web and Client Consoles, cutting your Beat Administration workload in half.
Watch how easy it is to onboard log sources in the Web Console in this comparison video.
LogRhythm SIEM Platform Enhancements
Managing a SIEM platform isn’t always easy so our team has made your experience even better. LogRhythm 7.15 features platform improvements that enhance your workflows, save you time, and reduce the number of steps to complete a task.
Migration Path to Rocky Linux
As CentOS 7 reaches end of life from the Red Hat organization, we understand the importance of providing an alternative operating system to migrate DX and OC machines. That’s why LogRhythm created a detailed guide to migrate to Rocky Linux. This migration path offers customers continued support from the OS vendor to address security and bug fixes.
Web Console Log Export in Users’ Local Time
LogRhythm has made it easier to convert time zones when exporting logs from the Web Console to a CSV file. Customers can now export CSV files in their local time zone versus having to convert from the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) time zone. Now users don’t have to do through the cumbersome conversion process to identify the correct time, improving their experience with the SIEM platform.
Automatic Flat File Path Population for Windows Event Logs
To make the workflow and tasks easier for LogRhythm SIEM users, we’ve changed a setting to automatically fill the flat file path population for Windows Event Log-based log sources. Now when users add Windows PowerShell Event logs or Windows SysMon Event logs, for example, LogRhythm SIEM 7.15 auto updates that field. This update saves users time and provides a more streamlined experience.
URL Links in Alarm Notifications
Navigating to an alarm from a notification is easier than ever. Our team improved the experience to direct you to alarm details even if you previously weren’t logged into the Web Console. After clicking a URL in a notification and logging into the Web Console, LogRhythm now automatically routes you to the correct alarm. This update saves you time and removes the hassle of searching for important notifications.
