Breakdown of core features
LogRhythm enables users to understand what their data means. The software specializes in normalizing log and machine data and identifying actionable insights, so IT professionals can protect the network and automate compliance, threat detection, and response. It collects from every device, application, and sensor in the environment. Furthermore, its Machine Data Intelligence (MDI) Fabric classifies and contextually structures every log message to bring deep intelligence into over 800 unique data source types.
The platform’s Elasticsearch-based back-end allows for both Contextual Search and Unstructured Search. Unstructured Search lets users search data based on keyword criteria. On the other hand, Contextualized Search gives a more precise search so users can get to the correct data and make fast decisions. LogRhythm displays data in an intuitive UI, leveraging customizable analysis widgets. Powered by people and supported by technology, security operations teams can use search analytics to actively hunt for threats.
Automated incident response
LogRhythm’s SmartResponse™ empowers teams to decide the best solution to automate work so members can focus on complex incident responses that call for skill. IT teams can choose from fully-automated playbook actions or semi-automated, approval-based response actions that allow users to review before executing countermeasures. Users can also identify the network port where a suspicious device is and disable the port or device.
The software presents actionable intelligence based on known adversary behaviors modeled from specific threat observations. Its MITRE ATT&CK features provide immediate insight for security teams to respond effectively and address gaps in their security visibility, operations, and infrastructure. LogRhythm has prebuilt content mapped to ATT&CK within the platform, including analytics, dashboard views, and threat hunting tools. This content enables users to detect adversaries and improve their security programs as prescribed by the MITRE ATT&CK framework.
