Protect Your Servers and IT Infrastructure with LogRhythm: A Comprehensive Platform that Streamlines Data Security

Logrhythm All In One Platform Streamlines Data Security

TL; DR: LogRhythm is an all-in-one digital security platform that gives companies peace of mind by streamlining their operational systems. It combines log management, machine learning, and the latest security technology to increase visibility, allowing clients to quickly detect threats and minimize risks. LogRhythm helps protect a company’s technology so it doesn’t need a large IT department to face an ever-changing security environment. And by cutting down on the work of IT departments, LogRhythm saves companies money while keeping them ahead of the competition.

Most companies understand the importance of digital security, especially during the global COVID-19 pandemic when cyberattacks are up 400%. And few organizations are sitting on as much sensitive information as those in the health sector. Beyond the stress of caring for patients, health professionals must remain vigilant of their data security to safeguard the personal information of patients.

In the health field, security isn’t only about minimizing the risk of ransomware or financial loss; it also offers peace of mind. People prefer a hospital that is concerned with keeping their data safe over one that has suffered a data breach.

One U.S.-based healthcare organization with close to 40,000 employees found that it lacked a reliable, centralized system for detecting and responding to cybersecurity threats. So it deployed the LogRhythm NextGen Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platform to improve visibility and streamline its security operations through one solution.

LogRhythm reduced the amount of work required of the company’s IT department, automating many repetitive tasks involved in gathering and interpreting data. Now, it saves the company between $30,000 and $70,000 every year. And that figure doesn’t include the value added from showing patients that it takes information security seriously.

LogRhythm offers a wide range of business solutions, including cloud-hosted or on-premises platforms that allow clients to scale systems based on their needs. Security is at the core of its product suite, which combines user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA), network traffic and behavior analytics (NTBA), and security automation and orchestration (SAO) in one end-to-end solution.

Its platform is also AI-enabled, providing companies with the timely insights they need to combat security risks without adding resources.

“We’ve been around since 2003, and our vision and mission have remained the same throughout,” said James Carder, Chief Security Officer at LogRhythm. “We focus on security as the core of our product line, and we develop products for our customers that improve their ability to monitor, detect, and respond to the risks that matter most to them. So we’re security-centric, single-platform, built for security operations.”

Security-minded leaders direct LogRhythm, and it has grown to serve nearly 4,000 customers and can save companies money while keeping them ahead of cyberthreats.

Analysis that Produces Actionable Security Solutions

Many security products collect server data and offer it back to their customers. But one of LogRhythm’s key differentiators is its focus on filtering out the noise. All the data in the world doesn’t help a company unless it knows what action it needs to take.

“We are a company that doesn’t just collect the data, but we also help customers take action against it and mitigate those risks,” James said. “I was working with a physician, and he told me, ‘I don’t want to hear about all the threats. I don’t want to hear about the breaches. I don’t want to hear about any of this stuff. I want to hear what you’re doing about it.’”

Businesses understand that they have to spend time and money on data security, especially in the modern server-connected world. But to succeed in their specific industries, companies still want to spend as few resources on data security as possible.

It costs a lot of money to build out an IT department that can deal with sophisticated modern hackers, which is why many businesses turn to LogRhythm to help solve their security needs at a reasonable price.

“Our customers rely on us to be the security experts that help them solve their problems,” James said. “At the end of the day, I look at us as protecting the operational technology that powers a business and makes them money. That means they can continue to run their business successfully and profitably.”

By protecting a company’s critical assets, LogRhythm allows clients to focus on innovation and achieve their full potential without getting sidetracked — or sidelined — by cybersecurity.

A Product Suite that Focuses on a Range of Business Needs

While every company needs to protect its servers and data, not all companies have the same priorities or budgets. Financial institutions and hospitals will always be the first adopters of security products. But even small online retailers must protect their servers and not become easy marks for cyberattacks.

“Everything goes back to dollars and cents. If you’re a contractor and you can prove how safe your systems are, you may be able to secure a federal deal,” James said. “So, we’re helping from a compliance standpoint. We’re also minimizing risk and lowering the potential for expenditures that would come from a ransomware attack or some other kind of breach. And if we can show that a business is protecting resources in a certain way, they can be more trusted in their industry and will take a greater part of the market share.”

LogRhythm isn’t only stopping cyberattacks, but it’s also central to marketing in the digital age. News articles about companies failing to secure their servers have tarnished even the largest companies, but many smaller businesses wouldn’t survive if it lost those customers.

Being proactive about security can be a significant selling point for customers who are conscious of their personal information. Instead of focusing on what they could lose, forward-thinking companies should consider what they can gain by staying ahead.

LogRhythm allows businesses to signal their commitment to data security while consolidating all the necessary components into one affordable package. Instead of needing a large IT department with multiple software suites, LogRhythm acts as a comprehensive data operations security suite and is ready to run out of the box.

“If they go buy a bunch of point solutions and have to build these integrations, they have six different companies they’re dealing with,” James said. “Total cost of ownership increases dramatically. And they may have to develop their own content. But we’re doing all of that for them.”

LogRhythm: Helping Organizations Stay Ahead of Cyberthreats

LogRhythm is uniquely equipped to offer critical information that helps keep a company’s server safe from even the most aggressive cyber attacks. The company stays up to date with the latest advances in AI and machine learning technology, and focuses on customer needs.

Cybersecurity has become a full-time job for some companies. Keeping pace with the latest developments requires more than a security mindset; it requires experts and leaders to devote their time to tracking and responding to cyberthreats.

“We know exactly what those customers want and need, and what threats are out there. And we can drive all this information into product development,” James said.

LogRhythm draws its information from an experienced team and feedback from more than 4,000 customers. A large part of staying ahead in the modern world is being quick to respond to customer concerns and building the products they need.

Professionals and entrepreneurs gain peace of mind from LogRhythm products. And instead of building an IT department and spending large budgets on security suites or paying off ransomware attacks, LogRhythm saves companies money and time by offering an affordable, all-in-one platform.
