New platform automations and optimizations empower SOC team to more efficiently mitigate threats and reduce the skills gap
LogRhythm, the company helping security teams stop breaches by turning disconnected data and signals into trustworthy insights, today announced its 6th consecutive quarterly release and the one-year anniversary of its groundbreaking cloud-native SaaS SIEM platform, LogRhythm Axon. This quarterly release introduces significant enhancements and expansion to Axon and the full suite of LogRhythm solutions, underscoring the company’s commitment to continuous innovation in the global cybersecurity landscape.
“In a dynamic and ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape, LogRhythm is obsessed with delivering value our customers care about,” said Chris O’Malley, CEO of LogRhythm. “As we celebrate the one-year anniversary of Axon’s launch, customer satisfaction is our first priority, guiding every decision we make. We believe that by driving continuous improvements in innovation delivery rooted in well understood customer needs, we can empower our product users to navigate the complex world of cybersecurity with confidence and efficiency.”
SOC Efficiency and Streamlined Analyst Workflows
LogRhythm’s latest Axon release rounds out the ability to seamlessly detect, investigate, and respond to potential threats within a security operations center. With the foundation of incident response, security teams can now leverage Axon to automate team workflows through case management. Case management enables analysts to automatically create cases that enable investigative workflows to track responses to threats, thus mitigating duplication of efforts and optimizing threat mitigation strategies. In addition, Axon’s new Signal Replay feature enables SOC teams to test analytics rules to ensure detections are optimized for their environment.
Continuing the effort to advance SOC efficiency, LogRhythm SIEM now provides seamless integration of log source onboarding through centralized management. This enhanced SIEM capability eliminates the need for administrators to navigate several servers and UIs to complete onboarding, thereby streamlining workflows through a single interface, increasing productivity, and reducing the administrative process in half.
Bridging the Skills Gap
LogRhythm continues to address the industry-wide skills gap by providing features that enhance the productivity and onboarding processes for security analysts. The new in-product resource centers for both LogRhythm SIEM and LogRhythm Axon equip security teams with tools they need to quickly understand how to best utilize the platforms and realize a faster time to value. This comprehensive resource hub provides quick access to tutorials, documentation, release information, and the LogRhythm Community for support from the security community.
LogRhythm Expands Cloud-native SIEM Platform to APAC
LogRhythm is also pleased to announce the successful expansion of their LogRhythm Axon SIEM platform to the APAC region. With a new instance in Australia, LogRhythm Axon’s cloud-native SIEM will be available to provide customers with a flexible solution to strengthen security operations and ensure comprehensive protection.
In partnership with Seamless Intelligence, LogRhythm’s partner of the year in Australia, a managed services layer will also be available for LogRhythm Axon customers. “LogRhythm Axon significantly advances what customers can and should expect from a cloud-native SaaS SIEM platform. We’ve been impressed with its platform design and architecture, as well as the continuous pace of innovation,” said Chris Bolan, Managing Director of Seamless Intelligence. “Our Axon managed services are being developed to take advantage of the platform’s capabilities and to provide our clients with the world-class cybersecurity solution and services needed to keep their organisations safe.”
