The Best Gets Better: Introducing LogRhythm 7.2

I’m excited to share our latest release, LogRhythm 7.2. It arms your team with the ability to detect, respond to, and neutralize threats before they result in damaging cyber incidents like a data breach.

LogRhythm 7.2 builds upon the groundbreaking innovations in LogRhythm 7.1 to minimize total cost of ownership and enable end-to-end threat lifecycle management. So what’s new in 7.2?

Improved Performance and Reduced Total Cost of Ownership

If your organization is like most, your requirements are growing faster than your budget is. LogRhythm 7.2 performs at massive scale, but in a cost-efficient manner.

This release improves data processing and indexing performance by up to 200 percent, reducing your IT infrastructure costs. It also provides automated data source onboarding and streamlines many other administrative tasks, allowing your team to focus on alarms that matter instead of spending time on administration.

New Security Analytics Capabilities and Visibility into Cloud Infrastructure

With LogRhythm 7.2, we’ve expanded our data schema to include over 20 new fields that unlock powerful new threat-detection capabilities.

We’ve also expanded our device support to deliver greater visibility into cloud-based systems, such as AWS, Azure, Salesforce, and Box. Altogether, LogRhythm now provides out-of-the-box MDI support for over 785 unique data source types—twice as many as our closest competitors.

Even Stronger User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA)

LogRhythm uses data from across your users, networks, and endpoints to detect threats across your holistic attack surface. This release offers significant enhancements to our packaged User and Entity Behavioral Analytics (UEBA) module, so you can better identify insider threats, compromised accounts, privilege abuse, and more. The module’s enhancements include new threat detection algorithms, stronger kill-chain corroboration, and improved real-time dashboards enabling more targeted threat hunting.

Streamlined Security Operations and Security Automation Orchestration

No one has to tell you about the major shortage of qualified security pros—you’re dealing with it every day. By investing further in our embedded security orchestration, automation, and response capabilities, we are ensuring that you can make the most of your valuable personnel.

We’ve made extensive customer-driven workflow and UI enhancements, including one-click access to threat intelligence data. LogRhythm Labs has created over 20 new SmartResponse™ automated playbook actions, accelerating response and saving time.

The release also enables you to report and trend on mean time to detect and mean time to respond, helping you measure and prove your team’s value.
