Leading Analyst Firm Positions LogRhythm in Visionaries Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management Products

LogRhythm Delivers Integrated Log and Event Management plus External and Internal Threat-Monitoring Capabilities

May 21, 2010 – 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 2010, published May 13, 2010 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 to empower organizations to comply with regulations, secure their networks and optimize IT operations.

According to the Gartner report, “Although compliance drives SIEM project funding, most organizations also want to improve external and internal threat-monitoring capabilities. As a consequence, there are requirements for user activity and resource access monitoring for host systems and applications, as well as requirements for real-time event management for network security.”

LogRhythm is the only vendor that has built a solution from the ground up which combines log and event management in a single integrated platform that also provides file integrity monitoring, and network and user monitoring. It uniquely addresses compliance reporting, internal and external threat management, and operations management.

LogRhythm’s placement in the Visionaries Quadrant follows the recent news that the company was named 2009 Innovator of the Year for SIEM by SC Labs, the testing arm of SC Magazine. SC Magazine selected LogRhythm for redefining what log management and SIEM mean.

“LogRhythm continues to be the innovation leader in the SIEM market and one of the fastest growing vendors in the industry. We believe our position in this year’s visionaries quadrant of the Gartner SIEM Magic Quadrant report reflects the fact that our solutions deliver more of the critical SIEM capabilities that Fortune 1000 and midsized organizations need to solve current and future compliance, security and operational challenges,” said Chris Petersen, co-founder and CTO of LogRhythm. “By extending LogRhythm’s visibility deeper into the enterprise and further enhancing the way in which users can visualize log and event data, we will continue to redefine what SIEM can accomplish and extend our lead over competing products for meeting the broadest range of customer requirements.”
