Solution for Log & Security Management to Ensure Compliance

Nov 21, 2005, 00:00 ET from LogLogic

    SAN JOSE and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- LogLogic and
 Counterpane Internet Security today announced a strategic partnership to
 deliver Managed Compliance Services to enterprises globally. Leveraging
 Counterpane's leading security incident detection and remediation capabilities
 and LogLogic's industry-leading log management and intelligence platform, this
 joint solution provides customers real-time forensics capabilities to respond
 to security incidents, compliance inquiries and internal threats.
     Fueled by government and industry mandates ranging from Sarbanes-Oxley to
 the PCI Data Security Standard for merchants and banks and NERC CIP for
 utilities, as well as strong demands for data privacy and protection audits,
 there is an increasing need among organizations of all sizes for automated and
 centralized auditing with real-time forensic capabilities to respond to
 security incidents, compliance inquiries and internal threats.
     This joint solution delivers an enterprise-class log management and
 intelligence platform as the foundation for next-generation security and log
 management as a service, and allows organizations to complement or reallocate
 resources that historically focused on developing and managing cumbersome
 rules and homegrown scripts. Customers will now be able to acquire log
 management and intelligence as a managed service from Counterpane,
 significantly enhancing their next-generation security services.
     "Security event management solutions for compliance mirror the anti-virus
 industry of 10 years ago -- they are cumbersome to manage, involve complex and
 costly rules writing, and address a fraction of the risk faced by
 organizations," said Chris Brennan, CEO, LogLogic. "With today's announcement,
 we are bringing log and security event management into the 21st century with a
 managed service for the realities of today's corporate compliance mandates.
 Why write rules that address a small number of the transactions occurring in
 the enterprise, when you can gain insight into threats through behavioral
 anomaly detection and the more than 100,000 rules Counterpane has under
     Enterprises can find relief by outsourcing the management of devices,
 system logs and compliance requirements. Counterpane's Enterprise Protection
 Suite, powered by LogLogic, collects and filters 100 percent of the
 organization's logs from any connected data source, including networking,
 storage, servers and homegrown applications. Through real-time data analysis,
 Counterpane receives immediate alerts to risks of fraud, security hacks,
 viruses, application and network downtime or customer service problems and
 takes action accordingly.
     Counterpane's Security Operations Centers (SOCs) provide correlation,
 analysis and reporting, delivering a sophisticated, accurate and rapid
 response to emerging risks. Using breakthrough reporting capabilities in the
 recently released LogLogic 3, customers can then generate up to 13,000 highly
 customized reports from templates, including those for Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPPA,
 COSO and ISO17799.
     "Log management and intelligence collects, alerts, stores and reports
 critical log data from systems and applications of all kinds," said Doug
 Howard, vice president and service delivery, Counterpane Internet Security,
 Inc. "With LogLogic, we can better address the needs of the enterprises to
 meet new compliance requirements and improve their overall risk mitigation
 strategy within IT, monitoring a broader spectrum of events in order to
 provide a bigger picture of vital security incidents."
     Counterpane and LogLogic will engage in joint sales and marketing of the
 solution, which is available now through Counterpane and value added
 resellers. For more information, please visit
