The early days of tackling cyber threats involved a team of crack detectives diving through thousands of alerts produced by traditional firewall tools and log analyzers to pinpoint threats to networks. This method was similar to finding the proverbial needle in a haystack and was labor intensive. According to a Bitdefender report, security teams spend 21,000 man-hours chasing false positives in a year. To reduce the expended effort, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools such as the LogRhythm XM were designed.
These SIEM tools employed the use of AI to log collection and management which drastically reduced the man-hours spent on detecting threats and dealing with cybersecurity challenges. Today, there are many SIEM tools available for large enterprises but fewer that meet the cost and time requirements of the mid-market which often consists of Small-to-Medium Enterprises (SME). LogRhythm XM appliances are examples of SIEMs that provide enterprises in the mid-market range with excellent scalable features. This is part of what helped LogRhythm earn a top spot on Gartner’s peer insights for SIEM tools.
And why is LogRhythm XM the choice for many users?
According to a senior security expert from Gartner Reviews (Peer Insights), LogRhythm XM provides enhanced "flexibility and a polished user interface" which simplified its use. The user also went further to state that the SIEM reduces the man-hours and the effort security teams put in when dealing with threats. Other reasons include the ability to scale storage, architecture, and recovery options as an enterprise grows its customer base and the amount of data it collects.
LogRhythm offers three options within the XM model to organizations with varying capacity. It is important to note that LogRhythm XM is an all-in-one solution that includes LogRhythm Platform Manager (PM), Data Processor (DP), Data Indexer (DX), and the AI Engine (AIE), To make an informed choice, an understanding of what these three options offer in terms of features and capacity is needed. The three options are XM 4500, XM 6500, and XM 8500. An analysis of each option highlights the following features and specifications:
