Information Security specialist 8com are joining LogPoint as a Gold Partner, to provide German enterprises real-time network security monitoring based on the LogPoint SIEM solution. 8com operates its own 24-7 Cyber Defense Center and will offer LogPoint SIEM as a Managed Service as well as delivered on customer premises

Copenhagen & Munich – 22 May, 2019 – LogPoint, the next generation SIEM, UEBA and Big Data Analytics company, today announced 8com as a certified Gold Partner in Germany. With LogPoint, 8com will be able to provide customers with a SIEM solution that is advanced, easy to implement and offers unparalled time-to-value for the customers.

“German businesses are scrambling to invest in cybersecurity, including firewalls and detection systems, but are often missing the big picture, by not having full visibility across the IT infrastructure,” says Götz Schartner, the founder and CEO of 8com. “While SIEM is often perceived as complicated, with the LogPoint SIEM solution, we can provide customers actionable intelligence within a week. Something that often take months with legacy SIEM solutions.”

The LogPoint SIEM solution enhances Cybersecurity and increases visibility by real-time data analysis across the entire network infrastructure aided by UEBA and Advanced Machine Learning. It provides threat detection and early detection of data breaches, and supports IT operations, Compliance and Business Analytics.

Originally specialized in Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Management, 8com today is a full-service Cybersecurity provider. Founded in 2004 the company headquartered in Neustadt, near Mannheim in Rheinland-Pfalz, employs 55 Cybersecurity specialists. Since 2010, 8com has operated its own Cyber Defence Center, a Security Operations Center and Computer Emergency Response Team, providing 24-7 Cybersecurity services to more than 40 customers.

“Following extensive evaluations, we have selected LogPoint for 5 main reasons. LogPoint is made in Europe and It’s the only EAL 3+ certified SIEM solution around. While other vendors focus on the Cloud, LogPoint remains dedicated to on-premises solutions and provide the perfect platform for Managed Security Services. And finally, the LogPoint licensing model is very attractive”, says Götz Schartner.

Unlike other vendors, LogPoint offers a node-based licensing model, rather than one based on volume (EPS/GB). This drastically improves the customers’ ability to predict and control the total cost of ownership for their SIEM- whether it is on-premise or delivered as a service.

“We are excited to bring 8com onboard as a Gold partner. With their deep Cybersecurity competencies and their focus on customer sizes upwards of 5.000 users, they address a key segment for LogPoint. Their competencies and company values are a great fit with LogPoint, ensuring our joint customer engagements will be supported through a professional and highly competent partner,” says Pascal Cronauer, LogPoint Regional Director for C EMEA.

LogPoint is headquartered in Copenhagen, with offices in London, Paris, Munich, Stockholm and Boston. It’s a partnerships company, working in concert with more than 50 certified partners, MSSP’s and distributors across the globe to address the growing SIEM market.

In 2018 LogPoint was recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM as the only European vendor. The LogPoint solution is praised by cybersecurity professionals in Gartner Peer Insights reviews with a 4.5 score out of 5, ranking among the leaders of the global SIEM industry.
