LogLogic Continues to Grab Top Honors, Product Accolades

Log Management Leader Named to AlwaysOn Top 100; Top Ratings From eWEEK, InfoWorld, SC Magazine

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 27, 2006 -- LogLogic, the proven industry leader in transforming log data into critical intelligence for compliance, operations and security, has recently been honored with a series of awards and recognition from top technology labs. The Silicon Valley company is spearheading efforts to make computer log data intelligent and continues to invest in programs that set industry standards for creating intelligent log data.

"Today, a quarter of all business data -- log data -- can now be interpreted in seconds," said Chris Brennan, CEO of LogLogic. "Log management intelligence not only keeps systems performing optimally, but offers unprecedented operational analytics for troubleshooting and helps businesses meet stringent regulations. At LogLogic, we strive to bring innovative, high value products to our customers and are honored that our role in the evolution of intelligent log data is continually being recognized and rewarded."

AlwaysOn recently named LogLogic as one of the Top 100 Private Companies. The 2006 Always On (AO) 100 list showcases top innovative private companies demonstrating market traction and the ability to disrupt existing markets. LogLogic was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial panel based on a set of five criteria -- technology innovation, market potential, customer adoption, media buzz and investor value creation. AO100 winners are selected from over 1,000 companies, peer-nominated by leading venture capitalists, investment bankers and industry analysts.

Calling LogLogic 'Divine' last week eWEEK Labs gave LogLogic's flagship product top honors for log source detection, installation, and reporting. eWEEK went on to say that IT managers should "consider the latest version of LogLogic's namesake platform," and that LogLogic "will play a significant role in reducing what we call 'audit friction' while simultaneously pinpointing possible security problems, such as the creation of unauthorized accounts on systems that contain sensitive data." LogLogic 3 rated excellent for reporting, installation and log source detection, as well as receiving top marks for real-time and PCI reporting capabilities.

SC Magazine named the LogLogic LX 2000 the Best Computer Forensics product and selected LogLogic as a finalist in the Best Security Audit category. LogLogic's LX 2000 scored five of five stars and earned a 'Best Buy' rating from SC Magazine in July. The publication says the LX 2000 "is as feature-rich as anyone could wish. Its displays are straightforward and one can perform a wide variety of analysis with relative ease. Coupled with the ST 3000 large-scale storage appliance, the LX 2000 becomes an extremely powerful tool for managing, analyzing and archiving huge amounts of data." The complete review is available online at: http://www.scmagazine.com/us/grouptest/details/5d15d987-9848-b31f-d33e-b62b91a5c87d/forensic-tools-2006/.

InfoWorld, too, rated LogLogic 3 LX and ST appliances 'Very Good' this spring. The Labs cited key product attributes like log source auto detection, reporting capabilities, along with LogLogic's power and relative lack of complexity to gain the high marks. InfoWorld says that "LogLogic's Series 3 appliances are ready to make a molehill out of your mountain of logs." The review is available at http://www.infoworld.com/article/06/03/10/76084_11TCloglogic_1.html.

Earlier this year LogLogic was featured at DEMO 2006, named to Info Security's "Hot Company 2006" list, won several product awards from SC Magazine including Best Forensics and as a finalist for Best Security Audit. LogLogic was also selected as part of the Red Herring 100 and won Best of Interop 2005.

Fostering Intelligent Logs

Businesses are increasingly investing in log intelligence technologies to address compliance and regulatory requirements like Sarbanes-Oxley and COBIT. A recent study among the Global 2000 by the vendor-neutral SANS Institute found that the log management industry is growing at a rapid pace, and anticipates double digit growth in FY 2006 to reach $380M. The research also estimates forty-one percent of the Global 2000 plan to make changes to their log management strategies during the next year. A copy of the report, "The Log Industry: An Untapped Market" is available online at http://loglogic.com/resources/white-papers/sans-download/.

In May, LogLogic launched Project Lasso, an open source initiative to encourage developers, IT professionals and other technologists to participate in and accelerate the technology development process around log files and their management. Just one month into the project release, there has been close to one thousand downloads. Project Lasso is available at LogLogic and on SourceForge: (http://sourceforge.net/projects/lassolog). The software is licensed under the GNU Public License (GPL).
