LogLogic Releases Industry’s First Full Service Virtual SIEM Appliance

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.

“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.

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.

In June 2010, LogLogic released a Tech Preview of its virtual appliance, which was downloaded by thousands of users from across the world.
