Extends Logz.io Cloud SIEM’s Ability to Help Customers Monitor and Secure AWS Workloads
Logz.io, a leading open source observability platform for modern DevOps teams, today announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Security Competency status in the Logging, Monitoring, SIEM, Threat Detection, and Analytics category. This designation reflects Logz.io’s deep technical expertise and proven success helping customers elevate and enhance their security in the cloud.
The competency designation differentiates Logz.io as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized software designed to help enterprises adopt, develop, and deploy state-of-the-art security practices with AWS. To receive this designation, AWS Partners must show that multiple customers have validated their technology for the specific competency, possess deep AWS expertise with a well-architected infrastructure, and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.
“Earning the AWS Security Competency status is a testament to our commitment to enterprise security: large organizations need a SIEM platform that is designed to scale as more and more teams turn to the cloud to run their critical workloads,” said Tomer Levy, Chief Executive Officer at Logz.io. “By working with AWS, we’re making it easier for our customers to aggregate security events from AWS services, combining AWS event data with integrated security intelligence and contextual analysis, ultimately enabling security teams to take critical response actions sooner.”
As today’s cloud environments built on microservice architectures scale and grow more complex, so do their attack surfaces. This translates to growing volumes and varieties of security events that need to be collected with Security Incident & Event Management (SIEM). According to a recent study by 451 Research, SIEM is the most cited technology when security managers are asked to rate what’s important in the security operations center (SOC). SIEM is also the most commonly used service offered by managed security service providers, contends the study.
Logz.io Cloud SIEM centralizes critical security event data from distributed cloud environments, quickly correlating and analyzing that information to surface threats, vulnerabilities, and attacks. In addition to consolidating telemetry across the cloud environment and adjacent security infrastructure, Logz.io offers numerous prebuilt security rules to help flag critical events and prioritize investigation. Logz.io Cloud SIEM is built on the OpenSearch stack — leading event management software — that enables easy integration and data ingestion from modern cloud environments.
“We are thrilled to see Logz.io attain AWS Security Competency and list the Logz.io Cloud SIEM in AWS Marketplace,” said Dudi Madot, Security Segment Lead at AWS. “Advanced threat detection is essential when operating a modern cloud-native environment that support today’s digital business. Logz.io’s Cloud SIEM platform enables customers to correlate data at scale and identify emerging threats in real-time to enable informed responses.”
A significant element of Logz.io’s go to market strategy is oriented toward enabling leading Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) to deliver advanced cloud-native security monitoring to their clients. Attaining AWS Security Competency status will also empower those strategic partner organizations to meet the needs of their AWS-focused accounts.
“Presidio is experiencing rapid growth in our next-generation Managed Detection and Response service over the past twelve months,” said Jon Jensen, Cybersecurity Vice President at Presidio Inc, a global digital services and solutions provider accelerating business transformation through secured technology modernization. “We selected Logz.io to provide SIEM services to our MDR clients because of their expertise in operating within AWS at scale. As an embedded solution, the AWS Security Competency by Logz.io builds on Presidio’s rapid growth in AWS competencies.”
