Alert Logic is the leading provider of Security-as-a-Service solutions for the cloud has announced yesterday about its launch of Alert Logic Log Manager. This new service enables real-time security monitoring of critical security logs and it can alert users about critical security issues, in many cases in advance of a breach. With the new Log Manager Users can be able to manage log data from their entire infrastructure including environments inside enterprise data centers in a single console.
“The release of the new Log Manager is a game changer,” said David Emerson, IT security and operations manager with Liquidity Services, a beta user of the service. “The new Log Manager provides a unified view into our log data from across our IT environment. The new agent-only collection option makes it easy to collect logs from remote locations that do not link to our network and from critical systems, which, for security reasons, have been isolated from the network.”
The new Log Manager of Alert Logic has the full spectrum of potential deployment options including physical, virtual or agent-only deployments with rapid service activation. Hence, it makes Log Manager the perfect solution to integrate into product portfolios of cloud, hosting and managed service providers of all stripes. As Log Manager is a proven security and compliance solution, more than 1,000 customers utilize Log Manager to identify and respond to security events.
“Cloud environments can be unforgiving to poorly designed solutions. Changing network topology, network IP addresses, auto-scaling of infrastructure and huge variations in log volume rapidly expose the weaknesses of legacy software systems,” said Dave Colesante, senior vice president of product development and CTO with Alert Logic. “The new Log Manager was architected to accommodate these unique challenges while keeping a simple user experience for searching and analyzing the ever-increasing volume of log data.”
