LogLogic®, provider of the only scalable log and security intelligence platform (LSIP) for the enterprise and cloud, today announced a sweeping set of new features for data collection, logging, and log management designed to solidify the company’s position as the only provider of scalable, cloud-ready, big-data-ready LSIP platform. Widely acknowledged for providing the industry’s most comprehensive platform for log and IT data, LogLogic has also expanded its partner program and now lists the industry’s broadest and most extensive set of cloud and MSSP partners. The new breadth of the program is designed to maintain LogLogic’s position as the premier provider of log and security intelligence offerings. Verizon, Dell SecureWorks and Savvis top a list of partners using the LogLogic platform to deliver log management and security event management services for operational intelligence, security and compliance globally.
With the news, LogLogic further distances itself from log management and SIEM competitors, remaining the only provider to deliver the performance, scalability and feature set that enable customers to adopt and rapidly deploy comprehensive log and security intelligence across their enterprises, whether on-premise or in the cloud.
Drives Log and Security Intelligence from Big Data
In the drive to harness insight from big data, enterprises must remain diligent in mining – in real time – the millions of IT logs they generate to derive actionable data, not only for security and compliance but for IT operations. LogLogic helps enterprises tap the value of their IT data, which may be their richest source of big data. In addition, the LogLogic platform is fully ‘cloud enabled’, through its MSSP and cloud partners, giving enterprises alternatives to on-premise deployment and new ways to profit quickly from insight into their rich data stores.
As the provider of the industry’s only scalable, big-data-ready, cloud-ready LSIP platform, LogLogic has provided a wealth of new features and functions for the three components of log and security intelligence: data collection, data logging and log management. Key additions include:
For data collection: LogLogic Universal Collector 2.2 empowers users by providing a consistent set of data collectors across all of their heterogeneous networking devices. Standardized collectors for syslogs, windows, files, delivery guarantees, network outage resilience, scalability, and compression of logs ensure more comprehensive views into the network. LogLogic collection services also allow organizations to demonstrate audit-quality collection of data that is focused around confidentiality, integrity and availability.
For IT data and log management: LogLogic LMI 5.3 introduces major feature additions, offering an industry-first ability to modify log data in near real time during the forwarding process. This powerful feature enables data to be manipulated to support the format of existing applications, such as Security Event Management, IT Operations Management, and even “home grown” applications. Because data is formatted and stored in near real-time, the need for time-intensive “store and forward” operations is eliminated. In addition, the company has made major enhancements to its Enterprise Virtual Appliance (EVA) version of the LMI product, including increased retention of records for SOX compliance, increased storage, and support for high availability, making its EVA family of products significantly more scalable and flexible.
For simplified administration: LogLogic Management Center 2.0 enables comprehensive management of LMI appliances, for functions including grouping of assets, remote upgrades, tracking of changes for audits, scheduled updates, bulk updates, and other functions. This capability simplifies administration of LogLogic appliances.
Additional log sources: Further outclassing other solutions, LogLogic has added support for additional sources of logs, including Sourcefire Defense and 3d, Cisco ESA 7.0, IOS, Netflow, VMware VCloud Director, VMware vCenter 5, VMware vShield Edge v5, Windows 2008 R2 German, Trend Micro Control Manager v5.5, McAfee ePO v4.6, and many other log sources.

Partnerships Expand LogLogic’s Lead
As LogLogic extends its dominance in log and security intelligence, it has also amassed partnerships designed to help companies address specialized big data challenges or accelerate cloud deployment, and to expand the company’s geographical reach and accelerate adoption in emerging or underserved industry segments. LogLogic currently maintains MSSP and cloud partnerships with leading organizations globally, including Verizon, Dell SecureWorks, and Savvis.
“Dell SecureWorks is a strategic partner with LogLogic, which provides industry-leading log management technology that meets the needs of our most demanding customers,” said Dan DeRosa, director of product management, Dell SecureWorks. “LogLogic enhances our log monitoring and management services to provide a complete, scalable retention solution that seamlessly integrates with physical and cloud customer environments.”
“The scope of ‘data under management’ today, among organizations of all sizes, is enormous in its implications for security, compliance, and IT operational intelligence,” said Guy Churchward, CEO of LogLogic. “Many organizations have focused on finding nuggets in that big data to improve their security posture, and their efforts are being abetted by vendors with less mature product offerings. But now organizations have discovered that this big data serves a higher purpose: to drive corporate productivity and competitive dominance. With LogLogic’s mature product offerings and unmatched partnerships, we stand ready to help organizations seize their greatest big-data opportunities.”
