Bloor Research Rates LogRhythm Best in Class for Real-Time Analysis, Forensics and Compliance Monitoring

Leading European Analyst Firm Says LogRhythm Clearly Represents One of the Most Technically Advanced Products on the Market

July 12, 2010 – LogRhythm, the company that makes log data useful, today announced that Bloor Research, a leading UK-based IT research, analysis and consultancy firm, has published an independent research report on the LogRhythm Log Management and SIEM platform. Bloor analysts ranked LogRhythm best in class for its integrated real-time analysis, forensics and compliance monitoring capabilities across both logs and security event data – all major requirements for SIEM solutions.

The Bloor Research report cites three primary benefits to log and security event management / SIEM solutions: 1) real-time alerts to external and internal threats, 2) compliance monitoring and reporting, and 3) forensics environments for root cause analysis and fraud detection.

LogRhythm was evaluated against five requirements: 1) integration, 2) real-time analysis, 3) forensics and compliance monitoring, 4) infrastructure, and 5) performance and scalability.

“LogRhythm scores highly across the board and it is particularly strong for its front-end capabilities, with its combined coverage for real-time analysis, forensics and compliance monitoring being the best we have seen,” said Philip Howard, Bloor Research Director, Data Management. “LogRhythm clearly represents one of the most technically advanced products on the market.”

The report cites LogRhythm for its ability to cover virtually all IT-based logs including database logs, syslogs, network logs, web logs, as well as physical security device logs such as badge readers, call detail records, RFID readers, GPS, ANPR and SCADA sensors. Mr. Howard also notes that LogRhythm’s File Integrity Monitoring is not available in most other products.

“We’re thrilled to have Bloor Research, one of the leading independent IT research organizations in Europe, identify LogRhythm as the best they’ve seen in the marketplace,” said Chris Petersen, Founder and CTO of LogRhythm. “This report provides further evidence that LogRhythm’s focus on helping customers fill the ‘visibility gaps’ on their networks by providing a more complete picture of activity across the enterprise is setting the benchmark for Log Management, Log Analysis and SIEM products.”
