Next generation SIEM deployment will help leading law firm gain deeper visibility and actionable intelligence into threats, compliance violations and operations issues
BOULDER, Colo.–July 9, 2013 – LogRhythm, a leader in cyber threat defense, detection and response, today announced that Blank Rome LLP, a nationally recognized law firm, has deployed the company’s award-winning SIEM Big Data Security Analytics platform to collect and store log data from their production systems as dictated by internal security policies and to gain real-time visibility into abnormal network behavior.
Founded in 1946, Blank Rome has nearly 500 attorneys representing a wide variety of companies, ranging in size from start-ups to Fortune 500. Blank Rome utilizes the LogRhythm platform to monitor abnormal behavior across past and present log data, helping to keep client data secure. LogRhythm also helps Blank Rome adhere to many regulatory compliance mandates relating to log data collection, reviewing, archiving, reporting and alerting. In addition, the company’s Advanced Intelligence Engine was deployed to provide Blank Rome with a platform to quickly react to new internal or external security threats.
“LogRhythm was an easy choice for Blank Rome because of the sophistication of today’s threats and our need to collect and analyze nearly 20 million logs per day, helping us detect suspicious patterns in behavior and meet evolving compliance guidelines, both internal and external,” said Frank Gurfolino, chief network architect at Blank Rome. “Simply put, LogRhythm’s sophisticated SIEM platform is a perfect fit for the firm and provides the flexibility to grow with us as our security information and event management needs evolve.”
“LogRhythm’s Big Data Security Analytics platform has helped the firm close a gap in our security posture in a relatively short time frame,” said Laurence Liss, chief technology officer at Blank Rome. “We have been impressed by the quality of training and support provided by LogRhythm personnel to-date.”
LogRhythm’s SIEM Big Data Security Analytics platform integrates log and event management, file integrity monitoring and network and user monitoring with advanced pattern recognition and correlation. This enables Blank Rome to proactively spot suspicious events and collect and store the logs generated across the organization’s IT infrastructure.
“Corporate law firms are custodians for some of the most sensitive and rich intellectual property in existence today. The bad actors seeking to benefit from corporate espionage realize this and have put these firms in their sights, in part due to the realization that the systems and networks on which this data resides are generally much less secure than those of their corporate clients,” said Chris Petersen, chief technology officer and co-founder of LogRhythm. “Forward thinking firms like Blank Rome are not willing to remain soft targets, so they are deploying the advanced monitoring and detection technologies necessary to thwart the increasingly sophisticated threats to their clients’ IP. Many of them are turning to LogRhythm to fill that need.”
