Boulder, Colorado-based SIEM vendor LogRhythm, and Qualys, a provider of cloud-based security and compliance management solutions, today announced a partnership under which LogRhythm’s SIEM platform will be integrated with the QualysGuard Vulnerability Management platform.
As a result of the integration, LogRhythm will be able to leverage QualysGuard’s open platform and APIs to provide customers with real-time vulnerability intelligence feeds along with its event and log information, something the companies claim will help customers gain deeper insight and greater situational awareness to help them better defend against cyber threats.
Some features provided through the technology integration include:
• A QualysGuard Vulnerability Management feed that identifies and catalogs assets and discovers vulnerabilities within organizations
• Alarm capabilities that notify users when imported vulnerabilities match preset thresholds
• Normalized QualysGuard vulnerability data that can be used in LogRhythm’s SIEM 2.0 correlation engine to help users prioritize events
In addition to its current technology integration, the companies said they are exploring ways to correlate data and utilize LogRhythm’s “SmartResponse” capabilities to help customers prioritize their actions in order to proactively remediate security threats rapidly.
“With this integration, customers can review aggregated vulnerability and event log data for more visibility and better management of IT security against possible threats,” said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO for Qualys. “We look forward to working with LogRhythm to provide customers deeper insight on threats and vulnerabilities and how they impact their businesses.”
