LogLogic is to extend its family of log management solutions with new virtual appliances.

The company claimed that the virtual appliances will be the market's first full-service virtual log management solutions, offering enterprise-grade log data collection, search and storage capabilities for companies seeking to improve business operations, enhance security and meet strict compliance mandates.

The virtual appliances will operate on recent versions of VMware's ESX virtual servers, as well as on devices running VMware WorkStation and VMware Player.

Guy Churchward, CEO of LogLogic, said: “In order to meet strict compliance mandates and improve overall security posture, businesses must collect, retain and analyse log data from applications and devices distributed all over the world.

“By offering a virtual solution, our customers will gain increased flexibility and scalability from their log management deployments as well as lower operational costs, all while experiencing the same quality of our hardware-based solutions.”
