ManageEngine extends SIEM log management capabilities to cloud
FYI, this story is more than a year old
ManageEngine is continuing to embrace cloud capabilities, and this time the focus is on its security information and event management (SIEM) solution.
The company’s Log360 solution now allows IT adminstrators to both store and managed log data collected from on-premise environments across Zoho’s secure cloud platform.
This, according to ManageEngine, allows enterprises to leverage log management to gain insight on critical aspects of their network, without having to worry about storage infrastructure.
The company cites Gartner research that predicts cloud-based SIEM deployments will reach $512.1 million by 2019.
“Small and midsize businesses (SMBs) are driving growth as they are becoming increasingly aware of security threats. They are also seeing that cloud deployments provide opportunities to reduce costs, especially for powering and cooling hardware-based security equipment and data centre floor space,” the research says.
ManageEngine has clearly seen the benefits of cloud-based SIEM. According to ManageEngine director of program management, Manikandan Thangara, Log360 Cloud provides the best of both security and cloud storage to enterprises.
“We’re broadening the scope of Log360 and moving it to the cloud because that’s what customers want — easy deployment and management, pay-for-what-you-use pricing, and a secure cloud platform that can take the burden of in-house infrastructure off their shoulders,” comments Thangaraj.
ManageEngine has previously tested the beta version of Log360 Cloud on a number of Log360 customers, with positive feedback.
According to Log360 Cloud user Jeffery Prichard, senior security consultant at Falcon Network Services, a managed service provider (MSP), the company’s security operations team has heavily relied on the platform.
Ryan Hedlof, technology vice president of A Marketing Resource (AMR) and another Log360 Cloud user, says, “Log360 Cloud has really become a key security partner for me. We were able to reduce our cyber threats by two-thirds.”

Key features that make Log360 Cloud stand out from other cloud-based log management solutions include:

- Secure cloud platform to store and manage logs.
- Powerful log search engine that can quickly perform forensic and root cause analysis.
