Many organizations have similar reasons for obtaining a Log Management / SIEM solution, such as specific compliance requirements or to improve their security posture. However, each may have a unique set of operational circumstances governing organizational requirements and the scope of implementation. One may have a network highly segmented due to security policies or geographic distribution, mandating specific collection requirements. Another may be constrained by budget and staffing limitations, requiring a flexible deployment plan.
No matter what the reason for implementing a log management / SIEM solution, the complexity of installation, operation and ongoing management will go a long way toward determining its success. A solution that can’t be deployed, learned and operated without requiring major resources can become more of a problem than a solution. IT executives need to be assured that what they invest in today will accommodate their immediate organizational needs and those in the future.
LogRhythm delivers solutions that are quick to install, easy to use and manage, and can easily scale to meet future requirements.
Few organizations have the budget or manpower for an expensive and protracted implementation. They need to know that the log management/SIEM solution they choose will be quick to install, easy to manage and scalable to meet future requirements.
LogRhythm’s straightforward design and turnkey appliances make installation a quick and easy process. A typical enterprise deployment can be collecting data within a couple of hours and fully deployed within a few days.
LogRhythm can be deployed using any combination of turnkey hardware appliances and software-based and virtual appliances. LogRhythm uses the same wizard-based process for operating all features, maintaining a consistent look and feel.
Meeting Project Objectives
One of the major hurdles organizations face when deploying an enterprise log management/SIEM solution is long term adoption. Many solutions are deployed to fulfill a specific requirement but are so complex to use and manage that they become little more than expensive shelfware.
LogRhythm provides an easy-to-learn and use GUI-based console with a comprehensive wizard-driven toolset. Users can employ preconfigured templates or easily create their own across multiple toolsets to build repeatable and/or automated processes. A consistent look-and-feel delivers a steep learning curve and easy adoption for rapid time-to-value.
In addition to an easy-to-use interface, LogRhythm is delivered with hundreds of out-of-the-box alerts, forensic investigations and reports, including executive level views and comprehensive compliance packages. Preconfigured rules deliver immediate advanced correlation capabilities for operations, security and compliances.
Intuitive Platform Management
Ongoing management of many log management/SIEM solutions is often time consuming, requiring separate administration of multiple components and a myriad of skill sets just to keep them running. This can include systems administrators required to run multiple operating systems and in some cases, full time database administrators.
LogRhythm provides centralized monitoring and management of all components through a single, intuitive interface – from flexible performance tuning to simplified global configuration management. Extensive automation and a self-maintaining database keep operating overhead minimal without compromising capabilities.
LogRhythm can be architected as a single, all-in-one software solution on dedicated customer hardware, or with a high-volume, distributed enterprise architecture. Customers can seamlessly integrate any combination of hardware, software and virtual appliances providing total deployment flexibility and maximum scalability.
