VeriSign today announced the first fully-managed services to collect, analyze, store and alert on logs. Utilizing LogLogic´s industry-leading log management and intelligence platform (LMI), the solution will enable Enterprises and Government to address the complexities associated with monitoring, analyzing, retaining, and storing logs from servers, applications, databases and other critical infrastructure.
With corporate governance regulations proliferating, enterprises are increasingly turning to managed services to unblock the ´log jam´ caused by new compliance mandates such as PCI and SOX, and the requirement to automate critical IT controls such as COBIT and ITIL. Log data — generated by applications and systems of all kinds — accounts for up to 25% of all Enterprise data and provide an immutable record of user and systems activity that is critical to compliance, operations and risk mitigation.
“The challenge of managing IT infrastructure is no longer one of just network uptime. Rather, it is the challenge of marrying security, compliance and IT controls,” said Chris Brennan, CEO of LogLogic. “IT leaders are unwilling to accept the compromises that a single solution imposes on their operations. By turning to managed services implementations from VeriSign that include log intelligence, they are now able to address their customers´ IT and business needs in a single solution.”
“Enterprise networks are expanding to include customers, partners and remote employees, so IT management must leverage the most advanced intelligence to protect customer data and ensure the integrity of corporate assets,” said Chris Babel, vice president and general manager for VeriSign® Managed Security Services. “Log management expands the VeriSign suite of managed security services, providing customers with additional capabilities to proactively protect their networks and come into compliance more quickly and cost effectively.”
LogLogic´s Open Log Services Architecture delivers a log management platform on which differentiated services offerings can be built. The Architecture is fully compliant with a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), which accelerates portal and workflow integration. Combining 100% log collection at speeds exceeding 50,000 messages per second for a single appliance with Agile Reporting & Alerting, ´Google-like´ search and secure storage, MSS providers are now able to bring a new level of insight and services quality to customers.
LogLogic, together with VeriSign, enables enterprises to make better operational and financial decisions by providing a holistic view of system and user activity, policies and business impacts. With over 25% of all enterprise data from log files, LogLogic´s log intelligence platform includes sophisticated analytics to help customers understand the impact of security policy violations, internal and external threats or services quality changes, and to meet compliance regulations from Sarbanes-Oxley to HIPAA and PCI.
LogLogic offers unparalleled scalability and reliability with a distributed, parallel processing architecture that is highly available and fault tolerant. Additionally, LogLogic supports Universal Log Processing — for the first time satisfying the enterprise-wide mandate to enable log analysis across all sources, including custom homegrown applications. Traditional solutions that use agent-builders or an SDK with professional services are not a practical approach for addressing hundreds of applications or devices per customer. Instead LogLogic´s unique approach based on Open Log Services and Universal Log Processing delivers out-of-the box support for any homegrown text-based log data via natural language processing, statistical algorithms and full-text indexing technology.
