BOULDER, Colorado, November 8 /PRNewswire/ --

LogRhythm, a leading provider of enterprise-class log and event management solutions, and Network Appliance, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTAP), a leading provider of storage and data management solutions, today announced a collaborative effort to help enterprise customers more easily address log and event management for compliance, security, and IT availability.

Expanding compliance regulations, increased security threats, and infrastructure availability challenges are driving both midsize and large enterprises to centralize, analyze, and retain log and event data from throughout their infrastructure. However, with most organizations generating millions of logs daily, companies are increasingly looking to automated commercial solutions to make their log data both useful and manageable while also meeting compliance requirements.

"The demand for log management and event management is booming," said Jon Oltsik, Senior Analyst from Enterprise Strategy Group. "Customers are looking for solutions like this that simplify the entire lifecycle of log management and analysis. The synergy of this partnership makes a lot of sense."

LogRhythm, a member of the NetApp Advantage Partner Program, closely collaborated with NetApp to offer optimized performance and compatibility for solutions that bundle LogRhythm's LR appliance line with NetApp(R) data management solutions. Both product lines are architected for ease of installation, use, and scalability. Customers can start with a solution that meets their immediate needs with the confidence that the solution can simply scale incrementally as their requirements grow.

Compliance-driven customers with long-term retention requirements will particularly benefit from the bundled solution. LogRhythm's "sealed" archive files stored with NetApp SnapLock(R) software provide extra protection against archival tampering.

"NetApp is helping customers address complex compliance and security needs with simplified-and reliable-data management solutions," said Patrick Rogers, vice president, Solutions Marketing at NetApp. "LogRhythm's integrated approach to log and event management both philosophically and technically aligns with the NetApp approach to addressing these increasingly important customer needs."

"LogRhythm's winning blend of log management, security event management, ease of use, and ease of deployment continues to resonate with customers," said Mike Reagan, LogRhythm's VP of Marketing and Business Development. "We're very pleased to be working with Network Appliance, a clear leader in enterprise-class storage, to help extend our vision of making log data useful."
