Leading Log Management and Analysis Vendor Joins McAfee Security Innovation Alliance; Delivers Immediate Support for ePO and Sets Roadmap for Further Integration
San Francisco, RSA Conference, April 7, 2008 – LogRhythm, the company that makes log data useful, today announced that it has joined the McAfee (NYSE: MFE) Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) and completed Phase 1 integration of the LogRhythm log management and analysis system with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator™ (ePO). The combination of LogRhythm and ePO provides threat protection, risk reduction and enhanced compliance management. LogRhythm will demonstrate their offering at the McAfee Solutions Pavilion (Booth 1554) at the RSA Conference this week.
Phase 1 support of ePO, which is available immediately, enables LogRhythm customers to capture log data from all applications and products that write to the ePO Events Table. Phase 2 support, due for release this quarter, will automatically forward alert information from the LogRhythm system to the ePO console in real time. This integration work will yield “McAfee Compatible” status for LogRhythm 4.0 once tested and validated by McAfee. Further integration planned for later this year will provide bi-directional communication between LogRhythm and ePO.
The LogRhythm Solution is an enterprise-class system that unlocks the value of logs by combining universal log data collection, analysis, event management, automated report distribution, and incident response. The bi-directional integration of LogRhythm with McAfee ePO will enable ePO users to drill down into the LogRhythm system to view log data associated with alerts and gain unprecedented visibility into potential insider threats, compliance violations, and other operational risks.
“Effective log management and analysis is an important component of a comprehensive security and risk management strategy. As such, we are pleased to welcome LogRhythm into our Security Innovation Alliance program.” said Joe Gottlieb, vice president of corporate strategy and technology alliances, McAfee. “McAfee has opened up its security risk management architecture to provide customers with the tools necessary to easily manage their multi-vendor security environments. The result is greater protection, reduced risk and increased compliance.”
“LogRhythm’s goal is to help customers simplify and automate regulatory compliance, enhance information security, and improve the efficiency of IT operations,” said Mike Reagan, vice president of marketing and business development for LogRhythm. “We are very pleased to be partnering with McAfee as a member of the Security Innovation Alliance. Our integration with ePO reflects our ongoing commitment to deliver best-in-class solutions and unparalleled value to our customers.”
