LogRhythm Combines Log Management with Cybersecurity

Given the cybersecurity threats enterprise IT professionals face these days, IT departments are naturally looking for the best combination of information security options.

Given the cybersecurity threats enterprise IT professionals face these days, IT departments are naturally looking for the best combination of information security options. If you are looking for a log management system to assist you in monitoring and responding to cybersecurity threats, LogRhythm is a product worth considering for your enterprise. Analyzing data has always been a tricky subject in the field of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), and in order to meetIT industry demands, a good log management system must provide an increase in enterprise efficiency, security and standards compliance, which I believe LogRhythm does.

Although first time users of this system might initially find the installation procedures confusing, the documentation LogRythm provides in it’s the manual can make the procedure less daunting. Although LogRythm does offer customer support for product installation, many IT professionals may not even find this necessary since the application itself has a step-by-step installation procedure in place.

The dashboard is the most exciting part of this system. It not only provides easy configurations, but also comes bundled with plenty of options that play a role in  monitoring network and other activities in real time. The visual interface is nicely laid out and easy to use, with the drop-down menus being particularly impressive. If you are a first time user of the LogRythm solution, you might want to start on the console, and then move on to it’s monitoring and analysis features.

The best thing about this system is that it is able to save valuable time by offering a quick data turnaround. Everything is automated, and if there is trouble, alarms are instantaneously delivered to the user by e-mail, allowing for an immediate response to threats. Another advantage of Logrhythm is that the solution is specifically designed in such a way that it can collect data at certain intervals. Data can be found, correlated and configured with ease when the aggregator is used. This allows an IT professional to save complex data for future reference.  

That said, LogRythym is not without it’s shortcomings, as many IT Specialists have reported log-in failures that were connected identification issues for various user activities. For thorough and complex forensic analyses, however, I have found LogRhythm to be invaluable, and am in overall agreement with Gartner’s LogRythm review which rated it amongst the best commonly used industry compliance data management tools.

Conclusion

From top to bottom, LogRhythm is easy to use. With the configuration and utilization of the management console, most enterprise IT professionals can learn to operate and manage this software with ease - if you are looking for a cyber threat detection solution offering a quick response and defense, LogRhythm is an excellent option to consider.
