Wednesday December 4, 2013 0 commentsBOULDER - LogRhythm, the largest and fastest-growing independent security intelligence company in the world, today announced it has been granted a U.S. patent (8,543,694) that recognizes the company's innovations in performing multiple analytical techniques to detect high-risk security events in real-time.
LogRhythm said the patent applies to technology that provides the architectural foundation of its AI Engine product, which provides real-time machine-based analytics.
Central to the patent is AI Engine's ability to identify sophisticated events via hybrid analytic techniques applied across log and machine data streamed at high velocity and volume.
The company said the patent specifically references LogRhythm's architectural approach to applying various analytical techniques - including quantitative, correlative and behavioral analysis - that can be leveraged in the same logical instance and be cross-referenced against each other.
LogRhythm said the patent highlights AI Engine's Rule Block architecture, a unique approach that provides analytics extensibility while also serving to simplify the task of creating and modifying complex analytical rule sets.
"This newly issued patent is another valuable distinction recognizing LogRhythm's next generation, unified analytics architecture," said Chris Petersen, company co-founder and CTO.
"LogRhythm's security intelligence platform, powered by our now patented AI Engine, provides organizations the analytics and intelligence capabilities required to defend themselves from today's sophisticated and rapidly growing threat landscape."
