There are many security information and event management (SIEM) solutions on the market with various features and capabilities. So why should you choose Log360? We’ve identified 13 compelling reasons that Log360 is the SIEM solution for you.
# 1: You get full visibility into your IT environment
Visibility isn’t just about collecting all the logs. Your security team is looking for answers to specific questions: what, when, where, and how. A SIEM solution must be able to provide these answers in the right context. It’s also imperative that your security team have visibility into critical issues and threats in real time, without being overwhelmed by too many alerts or false positives.
Log360 delivers meaningful insight by collecting, analyzing, and analyzing logs from over 750 log sources, from switches to IDPSs to endpoints, spanning your entire network. With over 1,000 predefined reports, real-time security scans, a high-speed search engine that processes 25,000 logs per second, and prioritized real-time alerts, Log360 provides 24/7 network monitoring. 7 and full visibility.
# 2: You can detect threats by implementing the MITER ATT & CKÂ® framework
The most common framework used to detect threats and assess risk is the MITER ATT & CK framework, and Log360 understands it. Log360 translates MITER ATT & CK tactics and techniques into predefined alert profiles and analysis reports. Log360’s security analysis component maps events to attack detection techniques.
Often, an attacker can deploy multiple techniques at once. In this case, you can logically group the techniques related to a single actor into a single incident. The Security Dashboard provides a holistic view of all related logs in your network, making it easy to investigate further. The Log360 Incident Management Console efficiently manages incidents and shortens incident resolution times.
# 3: you receive actionable threat intelligence updates every day
Threat Intelligence (TI) plus SIEM is a powerful combination for hunting and mitigating security threats. TI adds context to log data, helping you identify high-risk cyber attacks and mitigate them in time. Log360 comes with a preconfigured TI console that receives daily updates from trusted third-party threat databases.
What does Log360 do with threat feeds? It correlates threat feed data with events happening on your network and notifies the security team at the very first sign of malicious contact. Rest assured that Log360 exposes external threats in real time.
# 4: You benefit from a user and entity behavior analysis (UEBA) feature
Behavior analytics are machine learning-based systems that analyze user activity patterns to identify risks. Because they do not conform to established rules, these systems may perceive what traditional rule-based systems may not. According to Gartner, next-generation SIEM solutions need behavioral analytics to complement rule-based analytics. In light of this, Log360’s UEBA add-on is an extremely useful feature.
The Log360 UEBA add-on integrates an unsupervised machine learning algorithm with a risk management module. It learns the behavior of each user and entity and creates a basic profile. Whenever a user or entity exhibits behavior that deviates from its baseline, Log360 identifies the anomaly and increases its risk score. When high risk events are detected, Log360 alerts the security team. Log360 leverages behavioral analysis to identify malicious insiders, compromised accounts, data exfiltration cases, and abnormal entity behavior.
# 5: you can automate incident response actions to mitigate high-risk security threats
Rapid response to threats and breaches is crucial to maintaining your organization’s security posture. Although a thorough investigation of a security incident takes time, the first level response must be immediate. This is similar to the administration of first aid, the essence of which is damage control. Log360 guarantees this with automated incident response.
Log360 allows you to predefine action plans for security incidents through scripts and a range of useful predefined workflows, including Log out and deactivate the user, Kill the process, and Motorway service area. For example, if a compromised system is detected, Log360 cuts the attacker off your network with a workflow that logs out and disables the compromised user account.
# 6: You can choose between incident management in the product or integration with ITILÂ® tools
While detecting incidents is one thing, resolving them in an organized manner is quite another. Log360 allows you to assign tickets to technicians, track their status and resolve them with an integrated ticketing tool. You can even automate ticket assignment with rules.
Do you already have a ticketing system in place? We’ve got you covered. Log360 supports integration with several major ITIL tools, such as Zendesk, ServiceDesk Plus, ServiceNow, and Jira Service Management. Either way, Log360 ensures that your problem resolution process is streamlined.
# 7: Log360 is featured in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM for the fifth time!
Hear it from the industry experts themselves. Not all SIEM solutions do this, but Log360 was positioned among the niche players for the fifth time in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for SIEM.
According to Gartner, SIEM technology supports threat detection, compliance and security incident management through the collection and analysis (both real-time and historical) of security events, as well as extensive variety of other events and contextual data sources.
