BOULDER, Colo. and CAMPBELL, Calif., April 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogRhythm, the security intelligence company, and ForeScout Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced a partnership and planned technology integration between the LogRhythm and ForeScout CounterACT™ platforms. The platform interoperability will afford joint customers the means to gain continuous operational and security intelligence, enhanced predictive and preventative controls, and policy-based remediation to optimize security and compliance management.
According to a recent Gartner, Inc. report,1 "to enable a truly adaptive and risk-based response to advanced threats, the core of a next-generation security protection process will be continuous, pervasive monitoring and visibility that are constantly analyzed for indications of compromise." "Going forward, all effective security protection platforms will include domain specific embedded analytics as a core capability, in addition to traditional security information and event management (SIEM) systems. Enterprise monitoring should be pervasive and encompass as many layers of the IT stack as possible, including network activity, endpoints, system interactions, application transactions and user activity monitoring. This visibility must include enterprise-owned and employee-owned devices, and it must span enterprise data centers as well as the consumption of services from cloud-based providers. The future of defense in-depth lies not only in layers of controls, but also in layers of monitoring and visibility."
The LogRhythm Security Intelligence Platform uniquely combines next-generation SIEM, log management, host forensics and network forensics with advanced analytics to help customers detect and respond to today's most advanced cyberthreats. LogRhythm's solution collects and analyzes all available log and machine data along with deep forensic data captured at both the host and network levels for pervasive visibility and automated, continuous analysis of all activity observed across the enterprise environment. The ForeScout CounterACT platform enables access control, mobile and BYOD security, endpoint compliance and threat management. The solution identifies, classifies and applies network enforcement and endpoint remediation policy to managed and unmanaged users, devices, systems and applications – in real time and without requiring agents.
By combining LogRhythm and ForeScout platforms, IT organizations will be able to eliminate a broad range of cyberdefense and compliance management gaps while gaining greater return on security investments. Planned integration efforts can:
- Ensure endpoint logging services are enrolled, active, and dynamically tuned
- Enrich LogRhythm's analytic scope with ForeScout's dynamically captured user, network, device, system, application and security profile information
- Expedite identifying, monitoring and mitigating BYOD, unmanaged and rogue devices, and unsanctioned application risks
- Allow ForeScout customers to preserve, trend and investigate long-term user access and device security state by leveraging LogRhythm's big data analytics capabilities
- Enable LogRhythm correlated and corroborated events to invoke CounterACT network enforcement, endpoint remediation and third-party control trigger actions
"We are very excited to be integrating and working with ForeScout," said Matt Winter, vice president of corporate and business development at LogRhythm. "We are pleased to join ForeScout's growing ecosystem of ControlFabric partners and look forward to bringing advanced platform interoperability to our mutual customers."
The planned interoperability between each company's solutions will leverage LogRhythm's SmartResponse™ technology and ForeScout's ControlFabric™ architecture. These open integration technologies will enable CounterACT and LogRhythm to exchange contextual information with each other, as well as expose CounterACT's real-time control and automated remediation features to LogRhythm's SmartResponse functions. Correspondingly, ForeScout has joined LogRhythm's Technology Alliance Partner program, and LogRhythm has joined ForeScout's ControlFabric Technology Partner Program.
"To advance cyberthreat defenses, enterprises are looking for greater interoperability among traditionally siloed security tools," said Paul Phillips, senior vice president of corporate and business development at ForeScout. "By integrating with market leading SIEM platforms, such as LogRhythm, organizations gain the intelligence, analytics and mitigation capabilities that afford true compliance insight and greater operational efficiency."
