Moving your business information to the cloud helps your organization realize lower costs, free up capital, and increase flexibility. However, using cloud services may make your corporate data easier to access by threat actors.
It’s critical to monitor your cloud infrastructure, the rest of your distributed IT environment, and cloud applications in an integrated manner to rapidly detect and neutralize security threats.
You need to have the same level of centralized security analytics for cloud infrastructure and applications as you do for your on-premises solutions. Monitor your cloud-based infrastructure with the LogRhythm Threat Lifecycle Management Platform to:
LogRhythm offers several ways to set up monitoring, depending on your architecture and needs:
Gain end-to-end visibility into your cloud services within a single pane of glass. With LogRhythm, you’ll continuously collect, normalize, and analyze rich SaaS forensic data from your cloud deployments and your broader, distributed IT environment.
It’s easy to achieve cloud security in your Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment with LogRhythm.
With LogRhythm, your AWS data is combined with other data. This data then is correlated and analyzed using machine analytics to detect anomalies and corroborate potential threats and to baseline normal behavior patterns.
This analysis allows you to monitor your AWS services and be alerted on suspicious activity, keeping your data and resources secure.
LogRhythm can collect Microsoft Azure IaaS logs via Azure Log Integration (AzLog). Azure provides a wide variety of events including control/management logs, auditing when any Azure Resource is created, updated, or deleted.
Using the same log integration used to collect Azure IaaS logs, customers can also gain insight into their Azure PaaS environment. This integration provides a plethora of log data for visibility into the cloud environment.
Event logs from Azure VMs are treated just like on-premise Microsoft Event Log sources, parsing out fields such as the Event ID and Host. This enables correlation and analysis between the on-premise and cloud infrastructures in hybrid environments.
Other IaaS and Paas solutions, such as SoftLayer, Terremark, and Rackspace, can be monitored through LogRhythm System Monitor Agents (SMA).
