ControlScan Managed Security Meets LogRhythm SIEM
New partnership connects security expertise with advanced security intelligence, analytics technology
ATLANTA, Aug. 27, 2015 - ControlScan, the managed security service provider (MSSP) IT leaders and their organizations rely upon for unified security and compliance, announces its new Log Monitoring and Management Service in partnership with LogRhythm, a leader in security intelligence and analytics. The union of ControlScan’s progressive security-services expertise and LogRhythm’s advanced Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) technology significantly streamlines the process of detecting and responding to cybersecurity threats.
Effective log monitoring and management is a critical component in security threat detection. In its data breach investigations, Verizon has found that 84% of breach events showed evidence of breach in the IT log data, yet only about 1% of breach events were actually discovered via an internal log audit. These findings suggest that even organizations with dedicated IT support have difficulty keeping up with the amount of time and expertise required to adequately monitor and manage their volumes of log data.
“ControlScan chose to partner with LogRhythm because of its ability to generate actionable insight into what is really going on in an IT environment,” said Jyothish Varma, senior director of security product strategy, ControlScan. “LogRhythm’s capability to unify next-generation SIEM, log management, network and endpoint monitoring and forensics, and advanced security analytics puts it light years ahead of comparable solutions. ControlScan’s MSS customers will be able to take advantage of all these unique features to ensure that breach attempts are quickly detected and follow-up actions are taken before damage is done.”
Under the new partnership, ControlScan will collect, store and expertly analyze customers’ log data via the LogRhythm SIEM solution. By serving as an external, expert resource, ControlScan will provide a bevy of value-added log monitoring and management services to ensure that the latest security threats are detected and appropriately addressed. These services include deployment of technology for ongoing log data collection and management, health monitoring, compliance reporting, false-positive mitigation and alerting of cybersecurity incidents.
"ControlScan’s managed security services provide enhanced support to the LogRhythm SIEM solution,” said Nancy Reynolds, vice president of channel sales at LogRhythm. “This partnership gives our customers the ability to gain increased visibility into their security postures by leveraging expert, external resources for proactive log management and monitoring.”
