Alert Logic service captures, analyzes log data

Log management service captures syslog data from firewalls and servers and stores it remotely.

Alert Logic has announced the Alert Logic Log Manager, a service for automating the collection, review, analysis and archiving of network and server resources through an appliance on the customer's premises that captures log data.

The Alert Logic Log Manager is primarily intended to capture syslog data from Cisco and Juniper firewalls and Windows and Linux servers, according to Chris Smith. The service currently is not designed to capture information from routers, switches or laptops.

"We put the appliance on the customer site and the appliance ships the logs to our data center," says Smith, who notes the appliance is not a storage device but is used to collect and send the log data to the data center. Enterprises using the service can access a single, centralized view of collected and archived data for management and compliance purposes. The service will trigger automated alerts based on thresholds, rules and specific event conditions the customer can define.

Smith says this method of storing log data remotely is likely to be more economical for smaller businesses that might otherwise have to greatly expand on-site storage to meet some security requirements, including the Payment Card Industry rules for collecting, analyzing and archiving logs.

The Alert Logic Log Manager service starts at US$1,500 per month for up to 50 log sources.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
