March 15th webcast to highlight importance of log data in enterprise security.

Delivering Log-Powered Services Across the Enterprise

LogLogic, the log management and intelligence leader, has announced a March 15th interactive webcast entitled "Using Log Management to Drive Operational Insight, Mitigate Risk, and Automate Compliance" and is based on the report "Delivering Log-Powered Services Across the Enterprise" by the Enterprise Strategy Group's Senior Analyst Jon Oltsik.

Computers, networking devices, applications, and operating systems constantly log events. Security and compliance requirements like the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and the Healthcare Insurance Portability Act (HIPPA) require companies in a variety of industries to carefully track, manage, and report on their log data in order to comply with these regulations and promote internal security. Organizations need to maintain real-time policy enforcement, alert on controls and deliver detailed reports. Data must be encrypted both while stored and during transport, ensuring an immutable set of data can be produced for the desired period of time.

The March 15th webcast will cover:

  •     How monitoring, troubleshooting, and policy enforcement depend upon log data
  •     Differentiating security incident management (SIM) and Log Management
  •     The importance of large organizations' need for an Enterprise log management service
  •     Log data's critical role in security: event detection, tracking suspicious behavior, and forensic analysis

Log Management and Intelligence (LMI) is a compliment to the Security Incident Management Manager (SIM) space. SIMs cover perimeter aspects of security (firewalls, server, network intrusion) and ensure sure no one can access the network. LMI, on the other hand, offers a continuous fingerprint of everything that happens within the network. LogLogic captures 100% of transactional data in the form of logs from applications, devices, servers, operating systems and more -- and then make it actionable through real-time alerting, reporting, and millisecond search and secure storage. LMI is a key to sound IT and business performance, data protection and overall agility to support multiple compliance regulations in tandem.

LogLogic provides the industry's most comprehensive automated reporting and alerting for compliance - including SOX, PCI, HIPAA, GLBA, ISO, ITIL, and CoBIT. Underpinned by automated collection, processing, indexing and secure storage of Log data, LogLogic's solutions use log data from virtually any source to allow organizations to reduce the cost and complexity of complying with regulations, mandates, IT and business controls. Continuous compliance requires automation of The Log Lifecycle- how you collect, alert, securely store, search, report, and share this critical data source.
