LogRhythm 6.1 Big Data Security Analytics Platform Delivers Advanced Breach Detection and Response Capabilities for Expanding Channel Program

Award-winning SIEM platform creates new revenue opportunities for the channel

4 March 2013 — LogRhythm, a leader in cyber threat defence, detection and response, announced the general availability of LogRhythm 6.1, a significant enhancement of its award-winning Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) 2.0 security analytics platform, which provides the industry’s first multi-dimensional behavioural analytics tool. Empowering organisations of all sizes to detect breaches and the most sophisticated cyber threats of today, faster and with greater accuracy than ever before, LogRhythm’s latest innovation to its award-winning SIEM platform provides the channel with a solution to cross-sell with traditional security point products in order to exploit additional revenue opportunities.

Amid increasingly frequent and sophisticated cyber threats, traditional point security solutions are no longer enough to secure ever-expanding IT estates. According to the 2012 Verizon Data Breach Report, 85 percent of breaches took weeks or more to discover. LogRhythm 6.1 enables organisations to baseline normal, day-to-day activity across multiple dimensions of the enterprise. The system then analyses against that baseline the massive volume of log, flow and machine data generated every second to discover anomalies in real time. By doing so, LogRhythm is enabling IT administrators and security professionals alike to detect and respond to even the most sophisticated threats and breaches.

“Changes in IT consumption behaviours are drastically increasing the gaps in our IT defences,” said Barrie Desmond, Group Director, Marketing and Global Accounts at Exclusive Networks. “Device proliferation and diversity, mobility habits, application self-service and the tendency of the ‘Real-Time’ generation to trust, consume and save large amounts of data, in itself, multiplies considerably the number of incidents and anomalies, generating huge amounts of data (big DATA) and drastically increasing the threat surface of IT infrastructures. This amplified activity challenges the traditional surveillance, efficacy and mitigation processes of point security products thereby creating the opportunity for VARs and Resellers to make the most of this trend. “

In effect, and using an infamous phrase, “we don’t know what we don’t know,” has never been truer, and this new release will go a long way to addressing this concern,” added Desmond.

“This platform presents a compelling proposition for any channel organization operating in the IT security space,” said Stuart Quinsey, Director, Business Development & Channels EMEA at LogRhythm. “Not only does LogRhythm 6.1 provide a perfect solution for partners looking to add value to their clients with products which can complement existing technologies, but it is also ideal for sealing the gaps left between point security tools.”

Organizations across all industries are facing pressure from all sides when it comes to IT security –driven by growing regulatory compliance concerns, increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks and ever-depleting resources. With the security infrastructure market predicted to experience positive growth over the forecast period despite economic turbulence, and with one of the hottest markets through 2016 projected to be SIEM, now is the perfect time to think seriously about the SIEM marketplace.

“Being the largest independent SIEM vendor in an explosive market expected to accelerate to $359 million by 2014 in EMEA, LogRhythm is ideally positioned to help the channel take full advantage of the opportunities that SIEM has to offer. The company has seen recent significant expansion throughout its major distribution regions with Exclusive. By partnering with LogRhythm, partners receive comprehensive support and the backing of a truly channel focused company with customer references in all verticals,” concludes Quinsey.

AVAILABILITY: LogRhythm 6.1 is available immediately for the channel.
