LogLogic Makes Case for Forensics and Continuous Compliance Strategies With Log Intelligence

Webcasts Present Forrester Research That Defines Data Forensics for Incident Response and Arms IT With Continuous Compliance Solutions to Secure Critical Data Under PCI; LogLogic Provides Industry's Leading Insight Into Log Management & Intelligence

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2006 -- In 2007, CIOs and CISOs will have to meet new, tougher regulations for SOX, PCI and other compliance mandates while cutting through the complexity of their systems and without breaking the bank. Most organizations have already scratched the surface of methods and policies designed to meet these ever-changing regulations, but still don't have a cost-effective way to achieve or maintain Continuous Compliance. Nor do they have a way to investigate incidents and respond with a good understanding of what happened and when on their network. Log Management and Intelligence is poised to make IT professionals heroes while reducing the cost and complexity of IT. LogLogic, Decru, Forrester and Guidance have all teamed up to drive awareness of the power of LMI to transform IT from the datacenter to the forensics desk.

LogLogic today announced a series of webcasts that highlight the emerging role of log data and intelligence in providing continuous compliance and the tools for performing network forensics, quickly and cost effectively,with greater system control than ever before.

"Log management and Intelligence provides organizations with outstanding forensics and continuous solutions for maintaining compliance. With effective logging policies, IT can build, modify and adapt to ever-changing regulations from PCI to SOX as well as internal processes and controls, quickly and easily," said Andy Lark, CMO of LogLogic. "By unifying 100% of all event logs across all devices and systems across large enterprises, IT administrators now have a single source solution that automates routine tasks by a hundred-fold, reduces time spent on forensics, while simplifying deployment, management and compliance."

Log Intelligence Unlocks Forensics Role in Continuous Compliance and Incident Reponse

Compliance and information protection mandates require more than simply generating trouble tickets; it requires true incident response and the ability to quickly and thoroughly investigate and validate data. Forensics is integral to the new generation of IT, and log management addresses this need quickly and cost effectively while removing the complexity. With log management, organizations are able to detect issues and provide continuous coverage of systems to address incidents and keep enterprises compliant with the latest regulations (SOX, HIPAA, GLBA), industry mandates (PCI) and IT controls (COBIT, ITIL, ISO).

The webcast, "Integrating Log Analysis and Forensics to Deliver Superior Incident Response: Answering Compliance & Information Protection Mandates In 2007" will be held on Wednesday, November 15, 2006 at 2:00 PM ET/11:00 AM PT. To register please visit:

The live event features Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, Michael Gavin, who will discuss the critical intersection of computer forensics and continuous compliance, highlighting the role of the new generation of log management and intelligence practices in achieving operational goals. Moderated by Illena Armstrong of SC Magazine, this webcast features security expert Anton Chuvakin, Ph.D., Director of Product Management at LogLogic and Tim Leehealey, VP of Corporate Development and Marketing for Guidance Software.

Log Management Aids IT in Achieving Ongoing PCI Compliance

Compliance with PCI DSS is evolving at a rapid pace, with companies scheduled to bring their data under control in 2007 and have a strategy to maintain compliance for years to come. PCI DSS requires organizations to secure the identities of customer data and prevent fraud. Failure to meet this regulation means a hefty fine, or at the very least jeopardizes corporate reputation. Achieving continuous compliance requires the automation of The Log Lifecycle™ -- how you collect, alert, securely store, search, report, and share this critical data source.

The webcast, "All I want for Christmas is PCI Compliance" will be held on Wednesday, December 6, 2006. Additional information is available at, or email to sign up for the event.

LogLogic is joined by Decru in a webcast that uncovers the more challenging aspects of PCI compliance. The live event will cover the cost effective way to achieve and maintain compliance with PCI DSS using log management best practices. Topics covered include a highlight of what log data should be retained and for how long, considerations for securing stored cardholder data, as well as other sensitive log data, and a detailed description of the reports and processes auditors and enterprise management will require.

Replays of both the teleconference and audio webcast will be available for replay. More details are available at
