LogRhythm has been named a leader for fifth consecutive year in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM).
Since the company first showed up on the Magic Quadrant in 2008, customer needs have evolved, the number of breaches have accelerated, and the threat environment has become far more complex. LogRhythm has successfully navigated these changes and shifts, and has thrived in a highly strategic, competitive and rapidly changing market.
After eight years of continuous innovation, a commitment to customer success, persistence, well-timed agility and some great teamwork, LogRhythm has made steady progress to sit at the top of the 2016 Gartner SIEM Magic Quadrant.
The rise of SIEM
It’s fair to say that in 2016, next-generation SIEM is more strategic than ever. Customers are looking for a complete platform that can be the foundation of their security operations centre (SOC)—the central intelligence for their security operations.
Given the notion that computing environments will – or may already be – compromised at some point, businesses are increasingly recognising the need to move their processes and priorities towards detecting when compromises occur, and responding to them as quickly as possible. While that does not mean that threat prevention itself is obsolete, it simply means these defences cannot be relied upon to protect against determined hackers. The time between detection and response is when systems are at their most vulnerable, and without a strategy in place to effectively and efficiently deal with the problem, the consequences could be far reaching.
Security intelligence is critical. Organisations need to have end-to-end visibility of their networks and systems to enable the detection of any type of threat or compromise in order to manage them effectively and avoid a damaging material breach.
Meeting business needs
Businesses want a platform that can deliver the entire workflow from detection to investigation to response, in a seamless, integrated fashion. With many companies also short on skilled personnel, there is a greater need for holistic, advanced analytics that can automate real-time detection of threats that evade the preventative layer or originate from within. Furthermore, businesses want to consolidate more capabilities into just one integrated platform so that they can avoid the cost and inadequacy of trying to stitch together multiple, disparate point solutions.
As more and more customers are discovering, LogRhythm is fast becoming the next-generation platform that delivers exactly what they are looking for.
