Cloud Security and Monitoring

Detect and Neutralize Threats Across Your Cloud Infrastructure and Applications

Businesses like yours are increasingly moving information to the cloud for cost efficiency, increased flexibility, and improved accessibility. However, using cloud services may reduce visibility into the environments where your data resides, intensifying risk and making your corporate data more vulnerable to cyberthreats. Risks often include:

  • Decreased ability to monitor and control data as your organization’s network perimeter expands to include the cloud
  • Lower levels of authentication and access controls for cloud infrastructure and applications compared to internal IT systems
  • Inadequate or inaccessible internal facilities for auditing and reporting on user activity on your cloud services

Watch how LogRhythm’s NextGen SIEM Platform drastically reduces mean time to detect and respond to advanced cyberthreats.

Secure Your Data in the Cloud

Your cloud infrastructure and applications are equally as vulnerable as your on-premises solutions — if not more. No matter where you store your data, real-time monitoring and clear visibility are crucial for rapidly detecting and neutralizing security threats.

With LogRhythm, you have a centralized platform that monitors both your on-premise and cloud infrastructure and applications. To properly protect your data, the LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform provides:

  • Greater visibility into cloud authentication and access activity
  • Access control management to cloud services
  • Automatic alerts based on suspicious cloud usage
  • Pre-built reports highlighting access, usage, and modifications
  • Advanced security analytics

Simplify Real-Time Cloud Monitoring

Gain comprehensive visibility into your cloud-based services from a single pane of glass. With LogRhythm, you’ll continuously collect, normalize, and analyze rich software as a service (SaaS) forensic data from your cloud deployments and your broader, distributed IT environment. Depending on your architecture and needs, LogRhythm offers several ways to set up monitoring.

LogRhythm For Azure Monitoring

Easily collect Microsoft Azure IaaS logs via the Azure Log Integration (AzLog). Azure provides a wide variety of events including control/management logs, automatically auditing when any Azure resource is created, updated, or deleted.

By using the same integration to collect Azure IaaS logs, you can also gain insight into your Azure PaaS environment. This integration provides a wide array of data enabling deeper visibility into your cloud environment. Event logs from Azure VMs are treated like on-premise Microsoft Event Log sources, parsing out fields such as the Event ID and Host. This parsing enables correlation and analysis between the on-premise and cloud infrastructures in hybrid environments.

Protect Your AWS Environment

With LogRhythm, it’s easy to achieve cloud security in your Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment.

In a seamless integration, your AWS data is ingested by LogRhythm and combined with your other data. By using machine analytics, LogRhythm then correlates and analyzes the entire data set to detect anomalies, corroborate potential threats, and baseline normal behavior patterns.

This analysis allows you to monitor your AWS services and receive alerts about suspicious activity, keeping your data and resources secure.

What’s Collected

  • AWS Config: Configuration change, resource allocation
  • AWS CloudTrail: Audit-level logging for AWS activity
  • Amazon CloudWatch: Monitor AWS resources and applications (metrics and alarms)
  • AWS S3 Server Access: File access, file removal, changes

More Reasons to Use LogRhythm for Cloud Security

  • Gain a global view into user behavior — both on-premises and in the cloud — with centralized security analytics
  • Incorporate cloud services/apps into prebuilt security analytics modules, including extensive user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA)
  • Lower your total cost of ownership (TCO) for cloud security through LogRhythm’s ease of configuration, operation, and management
  • Quickly and easily meet your organization’s compliance requirements

Additional Cloud Security Use Cases

OS Log Collection
  • Configure static LogRhythm SysMon Agents (SMAs) to remotely collect Event Log (Windows) or Syslog (*nix) from any OS in the environment

Virtual Machine Log Collection
  • Use Virtual Machine templates to automatically deploy new SMAs agents dynamically. In addition to Event Log/Syslog collection, this has the added benefit of Endpoint Monitoring, critical in compliance scenarios (such as PCI)

SMA Management
  • SMAs can be managed centrally and in bulk from the LogRhythm Console, enabling you to apply templates and upgrade your entire environment
