Logz.io Security Analytics Combines Operations and Security into one Simple, Open Source Based Platform for Easier and Faster Mitigation

Boston and Tel Aviv, October 24, 2018 — Logz.io, the leader in AI-powered log analysis, releases the first robust security application built on the open source ELK Stack, bringing powerful and scalable security monitoring and analysis directly into the DevOps workflow. The new security application, Logz.io Security Analytics, is fully scalable and easily integrates with core DevOps and security tools such as Kubernetes, AWS, Wazuh and more making it the only security application designed specifically for cloud and DevOps environments.  

Combining enterprise-grade log analytics with artificial intelligence, Logz.io Security Analytics offers easy setup and seamless integration, preconfigured correlation rules, advanced threat intelligence and anomaly detection to help Engineering teams and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) identify and remediate threats faster. Unlike legacy SIEM and security solutions which are complex, expensive, and lack analytical sophistication, Logz.io security analytics is simple, easy to deploy, and integrates seamlessly into DevOps processes and methodologies.

The recent successful IPO from Elastic is clear evidence of the market adoption and continued growth potential of the ELK stack. The Continuous Operations platform from Logz.io leverages the openness and universal understanding of Elasticsearch and Kibana but adds cloud-native scalability and the features engineers need to do their jobs more effectively. The Logz.io Security Analytics app extends this value further to enable continual operations management for security and operations across all application lifecycle stages using the same platform and the same data.

“The ELK Stack is the world’s most popular open source logging and monitoring platform and we see increased adoption for security use cases as well”, says Logz.io CEO, Tomer Levy, “However, just as the ELK Stack lacks certain core components needed for effective operations, it also lacks robust security-specific features such as threat intelligence, a rule engine, AI, and integrations into security data sources. Logz.io Security Analytics brings these much-needed security features to the ELK Stack, enabling a fully proficient open source-based security solution.”

Logz.io offers a platform compatible with ELK that provides advanced security features such as:

  • Threat intelligence
  • Advanced machine learning to identify and mitigate security threats
  • A powerful correlation engine featuring hundreds of security rules
  • Extendable retention
  • Anomaly detection

“The more you use Logz.io, the more you realize that it is much more than just a log analytics tool,” said Moty Yacov, CISO at NexTraiana. “We use the platform in our Security Operations Center (SOC) and have found it extremely useful for connecting the dots between different types of logs. Using Logz.io’s AI-powered Insights, we’ve managed to automatically identify patterns within the data that we had previously missed. Logz.io has proven to be well-suited for an enterprise deployment such as ours — reliable and feature-rich, with performance unaffected no matter how much data we’ve thrown at it.”

Logz.io Security Analytics brings simplicity to a complex security space. The application is also compliant with PCI-1, SOC-2 Type 2, HIPAA, GDPR, and ISO-27001, making it ideal for enterprise customers. To learn more about Logz.io or to start a free trial, visit https://logz.io.
