Increased Intelligence from Real-Time Vulnerability Data along with Event Logs Enable Better Protection against Cyber Threats
BOULDER, Colo.—April 23, 2012— LogRhythm, the leader in cyber threat defense, detection and response, and Qualys, Inc., the pioneer and leading provider of cloud information security and compliance management solutions, today announced their partnership and the integration of LogRhythm’s best-in-class SIEM 2.0 platform with Qualys’ award-winning QualysGuard Vulnerability Management (VM). The integration of QualysGuard’s accurate vulnerability data with SIEM 2.0’s network security event information provides customers with deeper insight and greater situational awareness for better protection against cyber threats.
To enable business growth, IT must deploy, maintain and secure heterogeneous environments that may reside across different locations and networks. With this partnership, LogRhythm leverages QualysGuard’s open platform and robust set of APIs to provide customers with real-time vulnerability intelligence feeds along with its event and log information, providing customers with a more effective, holistic IT security approach to protect against threats and vulnerabilities.
The integration provides:
- A QualysGuard VM feed that identifies and catalogs assets and discovers vulnerabilities at the scale of customers’ 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
“We’re very pleased to be working with Qualys to provide our customers with reliable vulnerability data to help them protect against the latest cyber threats,” said Matt Winter, vice president corporate & business development at LogRhythm. “Together, our API-level integration allows our customers to further leverage vulnerability data and to achieve greater security intelligence and situational awareness through LogRhythm’s SIEM 2.0 solution.”

In addition to its current technology integration, the companies are exploring ways to correlate data and utilize LogRhythm’s SmartResponse™ capabilities to help customers best prioritize their actions to proactively remediate security threats in real-time.
“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.”
