SIEM Provider Selected Best Vertical Solution Partner for Utilities at Cisco Partner Summit 2011
BOULDER, Colo., April 5, 2011 – LogRhythm, the company that makes log data useful, today announced that it has been recognized by Cisco as its Global Solution Partner of the Year for the utilities vertical market. LogRhythm and its SIEM platform were honored at the annual Cisco Partner Summit in New Orleans. The Cisco Partner Summit global awards are designed to recognize the exemplary channel partners who demonstrate best-in-class business practices and serve as a model to the industry.
LogRhythm combines log management and SIEM (security information event management) with advanced pattern recognition and correlation capabilities to detect insider threats, sophisticated malware, and targeted attacks. To help utilities defend against cyber-attacks like the recent Stuxnet worm which can sabotage industrial equipment without any changes appearing in their monitoring systems, LogRhythm can extract, detect and alert on all suspicious activity captured in logs.
“Every utility relies on complex IT systems to manage operational systems and maintain their continuous availability, which also makes them vulnerable to cyber-attack,” said Mike Reagan, vice president of marketing and business development for LogRhythm. “Being recognized by Cisco, the world’s leading IT infrastructure provider to utility companies, for our ability to detect security threats across both traditional datacenter and industrial control systems speaks volumes about the power, adaptability, and intelligence of the LogRhythm platform.”
Cisco Partner Summit global awards are designed to recognize the exemplary channel partners who demonstrate best-in-class business practices and serve as a model to the industry.

All winners are selected by a group of Cisco Worldwide Channels and regional theater executives.

“Cisco is proud to partner with and recognize LogRhythm as a Cisco Partner Summit global award winner,” said Edison Peres, senior vice president, Worldwide Channels at Cisco. “The Vertical Solution Partner of the Year in the Utilities Vertical award presented to LogRhythm recognizes its outstanding achievement as a Cisco channel partner in 2010.”
