Organisations are going through a rapid digital transformation. The number of users accessing sensitive data is rising, and so is the risk of cyber-attacks disrupting vital services, or breaches leading to massive privacy infringements. LogPoint enables organisations to convert data into actionable intelligence, improving their cybersecurity posture.
As the only supplier of LogPoint on G-Cloud, we’re able to ease the procurement process.
SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) enables you to have complete visibility and event insights by collecting, analysing, and monitoring data generated by your devices, servers, network, firewalls and systems. The LogPoint’s SIEM system is named a Visionary in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) by Gartner.
This Modern SIEM solution aggregates event data produced by any device or application within your infrastructure, giving you the insight necessary to define the scope of and make critical decisions. LogPoint can assist with your SIEM needs regardless of the size of your organisation.
The modularisation of the individual components within LogPoint allows users greater flexibility when deciding on the SIEM architecture that works for their organisation. The UEBA (User and Entity Behaviour Analytics) module identifies suspicious user behaviour in the cloud, on-premise and inside business applications – with an unparalleled time-to-value.
Personal data held by public sector organisations often includes Personally Identifiable Information (PII): medical conditions, tax documents, doctor appointments and other sensitive information. Within the majority of these organisations, the efficient handling and access to this information is a key factor in the public drive towards digital transformation. In the future, the amount of digitised data is only set to increase and in 2018 the European Union implemented the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to protect PII from unlawful processing and loss or destruction.
What if the threat is coming from inside the four walls of your organisation? The ability to detect lateral movement and suspicious or abnormal behaviour in the network prior to exfiltration can defend against an insider threat. LogPoint uses UEBA and exhaustive compliance regimens to monitor and detect fraud within enterprise applications, infrastructure including Active Directory and cloud-based services such as Azure, AWS and Salesforce.
Being able to detect suspicious activity around sensitive and classified information is an important step to secure your infrastructure against data exfiltration. LogPoint monitors your organisation’s infrastructure by observing behaviours around enterprise applications such as SAP and Oracle, often storing key information subject to sabotage and espionage.
Unintentional data breaches are common, and in some cases, institutions have left sensitive data wide open to the public. Simple employee mistakes can become expensive incidents that can damage your organisation’s finances and reputation. LogPoint monitors network access, policy changes, file system activity and file access to help you identify misconfiguration, mis delivery and disposal errors.
