SAN JOSE, Calif. -- LogLogic, the log management leader, has joined the VMware Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Program and PCI Security Standards Council as part of the companys commitment to secure and protect corporate and payment cardholder data and information in virtual environments. As a member of the VMware TAP Program, LogLogic will optimize its enterprise-grade LX-ST log management appliance for VMware ESX for security and compliance solutions tailored for VMware virtualized environments. As a participating organization in the PCI Security Standards Council, LogLogic will work with the Council to evolve the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) and other payment card data protection standards.
As a VMware TAP Program member, LogLogic has integrated its leading logging solution with VMware virtualization to enable customers to standardize and simplify the process of collecting, analyzing, reporting, and alerting on log data files generated across virtual environments. Though log data collection can be carried out manually for virtualization, more stringent security and compliance requirements, the risk of human error and the time required to collect log data generated in large-scale production environments have made automated logging solutions an attractive alternative for IT departments.
LogLogic can help VMware customers institute better compliance controls by enabling them to track unusual activity and helping them with PCI compliance, said Nand Mulchandani, senior director of products, VMware. As with physical infrastructure, proactively monitoring activity logs can help prevent rogue activity and improve the security and uptime of virtualized environments.
