LogRhythm Takes Log Management, SIEM Virtual

Solution supports three leading virtualization platforms -- VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer
BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 19, 2010 - LogRhythm, the company that makes log data useful, today announced that its award-winning integrated log management and security information event management (SIEM) solution now provides enterprises, managed security services providers (MSSP), and Cloud service providers the broadest set of virtualization deployment options in the industry. With support for the three leading virtualization platforms - VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer - LogRhythm allows customers to run its platform on a virtual machine, deploy it in its familiar appliance form factor, and implement mixed mode environments to meet datacenter and remote site requirements.

Enterprise IT organizations, MSSPs and Cloud-based service providers are increasingly turning to virtual machine (VM) environments for greater agility, speed of provisioning, cost efficiency and flexible sourcing for a variety of applications, including log management and SIEM.

Meeting the Needs of Enterprise, MSSP, and Cloud Providers

LogRhythm provides customers with the flexibility to run Log Management and SIEM on the virtualization platform of their choice including the ability to deploy it in a completely virtualized state or in a mixed mode architecture. For example, organizations with highly distributed environments can deploy a dedicated LogRhythm appliance in their datacenter for centralized aggregation and management of logs and events, and set-up VM instances at remote locations simply for collection. Meanwhile, MSSPs and cloud service providers can easily support large user populations without the need for any on-premise hardware.

"Virtualization and cloud computing are transforming the way IT is deployed, managed, and consumed, which includes log management and SIEM technology," said Chris Petersen, founder and CTO of LogRhythm. "By supporting all three of the industry's leading virtualization platforms, LogRhythm allows customers to seamlessly integrate our system within their existing virtualization infrastructure while providing enterprises, MSSPs, and Cloud service providers with total deployment flexibility to mix and match physical and virtual machines to meet their needs."

Availability

LogRhythm with support for VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer is available immediately from LogRhythm and authorized LogRhythm partners.
