I look forward to contributing to the next stages of Logpoint's journey, further elevating the company and its offerings by innovating against the competitive advantages and driving threat intelligence and automation initiatives."

Logpoint is a player in the cybersecurity industry and is the only Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) vendor in Europe. Its platform offers a security solution that collects information from the entire digital infrastructure, analyses it against contextual information in real-time, and provides case management tools.
