SIEM’s Total Cost of Ownership

A Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) platform is an essential tool for managing risk in today’s highly digitized world. And not just essential; our perspective is that a SIEM is the central nervous system for security analysts in combing through alerts, conducting investigations, devising and implementing well-grounded countermeasures, and supporting forensics. As choice abounds in SIEM platforms, there needs to be a blueprint for making an optimal selection. We believe that this blueprint should be one based on Total Cost Ownership (TCO) as TCO modelling takes a balanced approach in weighing objectives and costs.

Started Near the Bottom. Now We’re Here!

LogRhythm made its first appearance in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM as a Visionary back in 2008. At the time, ArcSight was the Goliath in the market in terms of market share, customer penetration, and momentum. David (aka LogRhythm) looked at that Goliath with quiet confidence and a long term perspective then thought: “We got this.” After eight years of continuous innovation, a commitment to customer success, loads of tenacity, well-timed agility, some great teamwork, and a dose of humility, we have moved past that “Goliath” (ArcSight) and now sit at the top echelon of the 2016 Gartner SIEM Magic Quadrant.
