LogRhythm celebrates bumper year of accolades for SIEM development

16 Nov 2017

LogRhythm has firmly cemented its pioneering space in the security sector this year with accolades from the SANS Institute, Gartner and Forrester Wave.

Earlier this year the company was awarded ‘Best SIEM’ by the SANS Institute. It is the second time it has been named a winner in the category.

SIEM, shorthand for Security Information and Event Management, is at the core of LogRhythm’s flagship product, the Threat Lifecycle Management (TLM) platform.

Chris Petersen, LogRhythm’s CTO, says it is an honour to be recognised for the second time by the SANS community. The community is using and teaching LogRhythm’s products as part of its own detection and response portfolio.

The SANS Institute was established in 1989 and it is now the largest provider of security and training services to government and enterprises worldwide. SANS managers and security operations professionals had the opportunity to vote in the awards.

“The SANS community is out there on the front lines, actively deploying and operating security controls to avoid or minimize business damage from cyberattacks,” comments SANS director of Emerging Security Trends, John Pescatore.

“The products making the ‘SANS Best of’ list are proven solutions for increasing security effectiveness and efficiency,” he continues.

LogRhythm’s Threat Lifecycle Management platform combines next-generation SIEM capabilities to provide deep, real-time visibility into IT environments and ensures end-to-end threat management.

The company’s Security Analytics combine User and Entity Behavioural Analaytics (UEBA) and Network Behavioural Analytics (NBA). They help organisations to detect compromised accounts, insider threats and compromised systems.

Security Automation and Orchestration (SAO) capabilities deliver efficient, automation-enabled workflows that help threat investigation and incident response.

“We’re committed to helping our customers neutralize damaging cyber threats faster and with greater accuracy than ever before,” Petersen continues.

In addition to its enterprise customers, LogRhythm helps SecOps teams and security operations centres (SOCs) around the world optimise their operations, as measured by their mean-time-to-detect (MTTD) and mean-time-to-respond (MTTR).

This ensures compromises don’t lead to data breaches.

This year LogRhythm also walked away with the gold award for SIEM at Gartner’s 2017 Peer Insights Customer Choice Awards. The Awards are recognised rankings of vendors by verified end-user professionals. Rankings include the number of end-user reviews and overall user ratings.

The Forrester Wave Security Analytics Platforms Q1 2017 report named LogRhythm a leader for its work on the Threat Lifecycle Management platform.

"It’s an honour to be recognized by Forrester as a Leader in Security Analytics Platforms among 11 evaluated vendors,” Petersen comments.

“We believe it validates our commitment to bringing the best security solutions to market to help SecOps teams and Security Operations Centers (SOCs) around the world reduce their mean-time-to-detect and mean-time-to-respond to cyberthreats. We anticipate that our commitment to innovation and customer success will continue to sustain us a leader in powering next generation SOCs,” he concludes.
