LogLogic unveiled the LogLogic Compliance Suite at the Demo conference in Phoenix this week. The software automatically turns log data into reports and alerts for validating industry standard policies such as COBIT 4.0 or meeting regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and BASEL II.

The LogLogic Compliance Suite runs on LogLogic’s enterprise monitoring appliances and delivers more than 100 reports and 75 alerts on log data from virtually any application or device.

Infrastructure data in the form of log files provides insight into the use of corporate assets, risks and IT performance. In addition to servers and applications, much valuable information comes from mining the log data from corporate firewalls, VPN concentrators, web proxies, IDS systems, e-mail servers and backup systems.

"Instead of using propriety methodologies, we have codified thousands of hours of customer learning across hundreds of sites and industry standard best practices into easy-to-run reports and templates," said LogLogic CEO Chris Brennan, in a prepared statement. And, unlike rigid dashboards and reports, LogLogic Compliance Suite can be easily tailored to meet the requirements of human resources, audit, finance and IT."

LogLogic’s Compliance Suite utilizes LogLogic’s Agile Reporting Engine to allow customization of reporting and alerts and the development of custom dashboards without having to write PERL scripts or SQL statements to customize the reports.

The reports and alerts monitor and verify many of the controls defined in the new COBIT 4.0 specifically, and cover all four sections broadly. COBIT is the IT Governance Institute’s IT governance and control framework, most frequently used to help achieve Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, but also ensuring security and availability of IT assets in general.

The Compliance Suite is priced starting at $9,999. LogLogic said the typical return on investment is of one to three months based on reduced or eliminated consulting, personnel and infrastructure costs.

LogLogic also announced enhancements to its LogLogic 3 management and intelligence platform. LogLogic 3 release 2 delivers expanded user activity monitoring, including support for Microsoft Exchange, and enhancements for web proxy monitoring and enterprise forensics.
