LogLogic Introduces LogLogic 5

Security information and event management product suite or centralizes, structures IT data
SAN JOSE, Calif. — August 16, 2010 — LogLogic', the leader in SIEM and log management, today announced the release of LogLogic 5, its cornerstone product suite for centralizing and structuring IT data. With technology innovations in IT data collection, storage and processing, LogLogic 5 offers IT professionals 360 Insight into their operations, security stance or compliance profile.

“Large enterprises are met with a huge challenge in gathering, storing and processing data from their IT infrastructure. They have widely distributed, complex systems that are constantly changing, yet still need to meet compliance mandates, improve their security stance and understand the workings of their IT operations,” said Guy Churchward, LogLogic CEO. “With LogLogic 5, we enable 360 Insight, allowing companies to establish a streamlined approach for managing all of their IT data across all devices, regardless of whether they’re physical, virtualized or cloud based.”

Most businesses today have deployed a variety of analytics solutions throughout their distributed enterprise – such as SIEM, compliance, SLA and network monitoring tools – but often these tools duplicate collection and storage efforts and rarely share information. Additionally, current SIEM solutions are focused on gathering and processing only a subset of all IT data, leaving companies less secure and non-compliant.

LogLogic 5 delivers 360 Insight by centralizing and structuring IT data so that enterprises can operate a secure, efficient IT infrastructure within a compliance or best-practice framework with enhanced visibility and control. The new solution features include:

• Universal Collection Framework™ (UCF): UCF is the first WAN-aware, store- and-forward, encrypted, compressed IT data transport. It allows customers to gather IT data, increase resilience, reduce network chatter and encrypt from almost any device, anywhere, quickly and easily. UCF leverages a new transport and store protocol that LogLogic intends to open source in the near future.

•Log Labels: Log Labels is the first enterprise-class data description technology that allows any text-based data to be intelligently structured, masking the intricacies of log or flow data. With Log Labels, companies can now auto-identify, parse and centrally manage data from applications and devices, providing unique visibility across their entire system.

•User-Centric Interface: Extensive efficiency workflow research has led to the creation of a new management interface dramatically reducing remediation, discovery and management time with an extensible and flexible workflow ontology.

LogLogic users can now streamline their IT data collection and analysis process by leveraging LogLogic 5 as the central IT data management engine across devices, analytics agents and deployment options. This enables quicker and more flexible event response as well as deeper insight into their overall operations, security posture and compliance profile.

“Over the past year, LogLogic has been delivering on a technology roadmap – the concept of Extreme Log Fabric - aimed at providing businesses with total visibility and control over all IT data,” continued Churchward. “Our initial releases delivered massive data ingest and market-leading performance capabilities. LogLogic 5 furthers this roadmap by offering comprehensive insight into all forms of IT data from one unified place.”

LogLogic 5 will be generally available in at the end of Q3. For more information, visit: http://www.loglogic.com/5.
