LogRhythm Launches Honeypot Security Analytics Suite

Just weeks after announcing that it had raised $40 million in a new round of equity financing, SIEM and security intelligence vendor LogRhythm has released a new analytics suite that monitors honeypots in order to detect and track would-be attackers.

Just weeks after announcing that it had raised $40 million in a new round of equity financing, SIEM and security intelligence vendor LogRhythm has released a new analytics suite that monitors honeypots in order to detect and track would-be attackers.

According to the Boulder, Colorado-based Company, the suite enables customers to analyze nefarious tactics and generate targeted threat intelligence.

Designed to look like production servers but left vulnerable on purpose, Honeypots are isolated decoy systems and services used to deceive and detect attackers.

The new Honeypot Security Analytics Suite helps LogRhythm customers deploy honeypots to attract opportunistic hackers and then capture network and log activity stemming from the honeypots. By deploying honeypots, organizations can detect various evolving attacks – including advanced zero-day malware, brute force attacks and emerging nefarious payloads, the company said.

“The LogRhythm Security Intelligence Platform prioritizes intel derived from the honeypots to orchestrate responses from similar attacks on production networks,” the company explained in an announcement. “For example, LogRhythm SmartResponse plugins automatically apply observations from the suite to managed blacklists and identified malware, so the IP address of an attacker targeting the honeypot will be blocked and the programs executed can be identified if discovered on production systems.”

“It’s now extremely straight forward for a LogRhythm customer to set up a honeypot that looks and acts like the customer’s network,” said David Pack, Director of LogRhythm Labs. “The LogRhythm Security Intelligence Platform analyzes what the attackers are doing, and that intel is immediately harvested to best protect the entire company.”

Available immediately as part of LogRhythm’s Security Intelligence Platform, and it is the latest security analytics suite developed by LogRhythm Labs.
