Zenith Systems launches LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform at ITWeb Security Summit 2019

Zenith Systems, industry veteran in the SIEM market, has today announced it will officially launch LogRhythm's NextGen SIEM Platform at the ITWeb Security Summit, which takes place in Johannesburg, on 28 and 29 May 2019.

LogRhythm's NextGen SIEM Platform combines user and entity behaviour analytics (UEBA); network detection and response (NDR); and security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) in a single end-to-end solution, helping businesses expand and accelerate threat detection and response capabilities.

"Zenith Systems has been involved in deploying and supporting SIEM solutions for almost nine years now; however, we were acutely aware of the need for next-generation SIEM capabilities," said Murray Benadie, Managing Director of Zenith Systems. "We knew we needed a partner that could help us deliver not only the standard SIEM functionality, such as the mandatory requirement for an advanced and constantly updated rule and use case library, but also the advanced features such as SOAR, FIM, endpoint monitoring, UEBA and AI."

Zenith Systems' customers will be able to benefit from a cost-effective, scalable platform that delivers comprehensive, useful and actionable insight into activities happening in and around the enterprise IT environment.

By enabling companies to identify and neutralise threats faster and more effectively, LogRhythm's NextGen SIEM delivers compliance automation and assurance, reduced implementation costs and management overhead, and a higher return on investments (ROI). Other benefits include independent host forensics and file integrity monitoring, state-of-the-art machine analytics, advanced correlation and pattern recognition, and integrated case management.

[SIDEBAR]"We are delighted to be partnering with LogRhythm as they not only address the technical requirement for NextGen SIEM, but they also have a real commitment to their customers, something that was very important to us," continued Benadie. "Furthermore, they tick every box from a support, professionalism and cost perspective. The value of LogRhythm is confirmed by the fact that it has been named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for seven years in a row. With LogRhythm, we are now able to offer our customers a blended solution with a comprehensive, cost-effective managed service."

"We are thrilled that Zenith Systems has chosen us as a partner," said Mazen Dohaji, Senior Regional Director, Middle East, Turkey & Africa, LogRhythm. "The threat landscape is shifting at such a speed that businesses are finding it challenging, if not impossible, to evolve their threat detection capabilities fast enough. Our NextGen SIEM automates threat detection and response, helping organisations rely less on manual threat hunting, thus giving them a much better chance of mitigating threats before any damage has been done. By utilising our NextGen SIEM platform, Zenith Systems is proving its dedication to providing its customers with access to the most comprehensive, integrated security solution on the market."
