Logentries Announce Integration with Office 365 Management Activity API to Provide Customers with Greater Transparency
Cloud based log management and analytics service company, Logentries (@logentries), has announced an integration with the Microsoft Office 365 Management Activity API that enables Office 365 administrators to better manage their systems, user behavior and security activity.
Logentries real-time log management and analytics service offers customers the ability to easily stream events from their Office 365 environment into their Logentries account for usage monitoring, security notifications, data visualizations and alerting on user behavior. Logentries provides an alternative designed for managing huge amounts of data, visualizing insights that matter, and sharing that information across its global user community.
Trevor Parsons, Chief Scientist at Logentries (pictured left), commented: "We are excited to provide Office 365 users with an easy-to-use view of what's happening in their environments. The integration allows Office 365 administrators to quickly understand system and user behavior from a security, compliance or operations perspective, creating valuable insight and time-savings when something important needs to be investigated."
Integration with the new Office 365 Management Activity API allows Logentries to build solutions that provide Office 365 customers with a view of actions taken on their content in Office 365, and add to its comprehensive view of network and user behavior, giving organizations the ability to detect attacks across network, cloud.
Partner Group Program Manager, Nagesh Pabbisetty, said: "The new Office 365 Management Activity API provide customers with greater transparency and insight into actions taken on their content in Office 365, aplication Services Group, Microsoft. By tapping into this data stream, Logentries provides customers with the ability to visualize the data, detect anomalies, and generally strengthen their security."
The Logentries and Office 365 integration allows Microsoft Administrators to set-up automated alerts for specific events they want to track as they occur to fully understand who is doing what across their systems and applications. Out-of-the-box search queries, tags, alerts and data visualizations to support easy analysis of product usage, abnormal user behavior, and other security risks including:
- Visualized correlation between SharePoint and Active Directory log data
- Alerts when mail-forwarded rules are created
- Count charts displaying volume of files shared externally, by user
- Notifications and visualization of sign-in failures by user, IP and geography
Microsoft has over the past couple of years evolved into a strong proponent of and active participant in discussions around data security and data protection, including legislative change impacting these areas in the US. It's also among a number of US cloud providers that are convinced many still lack trust in the cloud from a security standpoint, consequently hampering its ability to make inroads into the cloud market, which gives it an added incentive to double down on securing its own offerings.
Scott Charney, Corporate Vice President, Trustworthy Computing at Microsoft, explained: "Over the past few years, we have seen the security environment change and evolve. Cyber threats are reaching new levels, involving the destruction of property, and governments now act both as protectors and exploiters of technology. In this changing environment, two themes have emerged when I talk with our customers - firstly, they want more transparency from their providers and more control of their data, and secondly they are looking for companies to protect their data through leading edge security features."
