SAN JOSE, Calif.: LogLogic, the leading independent SIEM and IT data management provider, today announced the release of the industry’s first full-service virtual SIEM solution. Leveraging the recently released LogLogic 5 software, LogLogic’s MX Virtual delivers all the functionality of LogLogic’s hardware-based appliances via VMware technology, enabling companies to improve business operations, enhance security and meet strict compliance mandates.
The LogLogic MX Virtual delivers enterprise-grade IT data collection, search and storage capabilities as well as customizable alerts and reports covering identity and access management, user activity, network changes, security, business continuity and IT performance. LogLogic MX Virtual offers increased flexibility and scalability, allowing workgroups and businesses to collect, manage and analyze IT data from anywhere in their organization.
“Virtualization is a reality for many businesses that are looking to drive efficiencies throughout their organizations, or that have space-constrained or widely-distributed IT environments,” said LogLogic CEO Guy Churchward. “We saw huge interest in our Virtual Tech Preview this June and were eager to get our full virtual appliance out to meet demand. With the release of LogLogic’s MX Virtual, we enable companies to lower their operational costs, while leveraging the full power of our IT data management technology anywhere in the world.”
The MX Virtual also lowers the cost of entry for the smaller companies, those with security or PCI compliance needs but have very few servers or monitoring points. It is also perfectly suited for cloud providers who wish to offer logging-as-a-service, or PCI-as-a-Service in the cloud. The MX Virtual allows them to spin up a virtual machine for every customer, ensuring separation of data and silo-ed security.
LogLogic’s Cloud Drumbeat
This release is part of LogLogic’s on-going foray into cloud computing and virtualization. In June 2010, LogLogic released a Tech Preview of its virtual appliance, which was downloaded by thousands of users from across the world. Also, in August, LogLogic announced its collaboration and support for VMware’s vCloud™ Director.
Ecosystem partners had good things to say as well, commenting on the new features. “I appreciate the clean, efficient interface,” said Steve Malandrinos, Sr. Information Security Engineer at Exultium. “I find the Virtual Appliance tech preview program extremely valuable as well.”
The LogLogic MX Virtual is generally available today. For more information, see the LogLogic web site at http://www.loglogic.com/virtual-appliance. Pricing for the LogLogic MX Virtual product starts at $3,000 for a small number of log sources.
