LogRhythm Partners with Fujitsu

LogRhythm Partners with Fujitsu to Provide SOC Security Intelligence Platform

Fujitsu selects LogRhythm’s multi-tenancy architecture and mature MSSP program

LogRhythm, the world’s fastest growing security intelligence company, today announced the signing of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand as the latest member of its expanding Managed Security Services Partner (MSSP) program.

Having completed a comprehensive technical and business evaluation of available security intelligence and managed services, Fujitsu selected LogRhythm to provide the security intelligence platform for its recently launched Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Sydney.

Key to the new partnership is LogRhythm’s best of breed technology for advanced security analytics that provides rapid detection and response to advanced threats. Its multi-tenancy architecture and mature MSSP program were also important differentiators for Fujitsu as it helps customers address their information security risks.

LogRhythm’s MSSP program will allow Fujitsu to expand and accelerate its delivery of compliance automation and assurance, and reduce its clients’ implementation costs and management overheads.

Today’s announcement extends established relationships between LogRhythm and Fujitsu in other regions around the world. LogRhythm will kick-start the new local partnership with technical and sales training for Fujitsu’s SOC team.

Bill Taylor, Vice President, Asia Pacific, LogRhythm, said: “The cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving, so it is now a matter of when, not if, a compromise or breach will occur. We see a very natural fit between LogRhythm and Fujitsu and are delighted by this latest recognition of our platform’s out-of-the-box capabilities.

“As we have a channel-only sales model in Australia and New Zealand, the signing of a significant partner of Fujitsu’s expertise and commitment is pivotal to our success in expanding our reach into enterprise customers from all sectors across Australia and New Zealand.”
