Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
BOULDER, Colo., May 18, 2011 – LogRhythm, the company that makes log data useful, today announced that it was placed by Gartner Inc. in the visionaries quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) report for 2011, published May 12, 2011 by Mark Nicolett and Kelly Kavanagh.
The award-winning LogRhythm SIEM solution integrates log and event management, file integrity monitoring, and network and user monitoring, with advanced pattern recognition and correlation to empower organizations to comply with regulations, secure their networks and optimize IT operations.
According to the Gartner report, “This year, we have made changes in the way we evaluate innovation. There is a stronger weighting of capabilities that are needed for security monitoring and targeted attack discovery — real-time event management, user activity monitoring, data access monitoring, application activity monitoring and capabilities/plans for profiling, and anomaly detection.”
LogRhythm’s placement in the Visionaries Quadrant follows the recent news that for the second consecutive year SC Magazine, the information security industry’s leading news and product evaluation publication, has given the LogRhythm SIEM platform its Recommended Award in its SIEM Group Test. LogRhythm also received a five star rating from SC Magazine’s reviewers, marking the fourth consecutive year it has earned a perfect score.
“LogRhythm is providing advanced security monitoring and attack discovery capabilities not available from other vendors in the industry,” said Chris Petersen, co-founder and CTO of LogRhythm. “We believe our position in this year’s visionaries quadrant of the Gartner SIEM Magic Quadrant report and the fact that LogRhythm is optimal for security operations and compliance use cases places LogRhythm squarely in the sites of over 80% of SIEM buyers.”
