First Cloud-Based Log Management Service

Logentries Delivers First Cloud-based Log Management Service with Data Obfuscation for Enterprise Security and Data Protection

(December 11th, 2014) - Logentries, the leading log management and analytics service built for the cloud, today announced the DataHub for enterprise-level security, compliance and data protection requirements across large and growing organizations. The new DataHub component provides enterprise customers with the ability to filter and obfuscate sensitive data from log files before leaving their network; back-up copies of log files locally; and create redundant copies of log data in cloud storage prior to sending logs into the Logentries service.

Heavily regulated enterprise organizations today are required to prioritize security and compliance within their IT environment, and need flexibility to filter private information out of their logs while also accessing the valuable data that is held within their logs. While historically this meant they did not have the option for cloud-based services, the Logentries DataHub is offering the first cloud-based service for log management real-time analytics designed to enable security, privacy, and sensitive data protection. By automatically detecting and tracking specific patterns, numbers, or fields within log files and offering one-way hash coding, the DataHub provides an additional layer of security and protection and assures that no sensitive log data leaves the network. Additionally, by monitoring important machine data in real-time, customers always know about system and user activity that may be an indicator of future security concerns.

Logentries enterprise customers are using the DataHub add-on to:

  • Scrub and obfuscate sensitive PII data from their logs before sending to Logentries so that no sensitive data leaves the user's network.
  • Centralize log information from network devices and firewalls that don't support secure transport of log data; and then send it securely to a cloud service.
  • Automatically back up log data locally to protect against network connectivity issues.
  • Send unlimited amounts of data to cloud storage (e.g. AWS S3) for additional redundancy back-up, and ingest it on-demand using the Logentries Unlimited logging technology.
  • Receive real-time notifications about system activity, user behavior, and suspicious activity.
  • Increase reliability and assurance with 99.99% uptime SLA and access to log data.

"The Logentries DataHub has enabled us to effectively and securely centralize our log data where we can conveniently and efficiently access it in seconds," said Michael Dieter, Senior Systems Engineer, Loyola University Maryland. "Logentries' real-time alerting lets us know immediately about changes in system behavior, dramatically improving our response and resolution times."

"We are excited to offer customers in heavily-regulated industries an opportunity they've never had before to log unlimited amounts of data in a secure and protected cloud-based environment," said Trevor Parsons, Chief Scientist and Co-founder, Logentries. "For the first time, these customers can benefit from the ease of use and cost savings of the cloud, and still be confident about meeting security and compliance requirements."

The cloud-based Logentries service collects and pre-processes log events in real-time for on-demand analysis, alerting and visualization. With custom tagging and filtering, users can correlate security and performance issues with broader infrastructure activity including application usage, server metrics and user behavior. Users can get started with a free, free, all-inclusive 30-day trial today at Logentries.com
