Retain and preserve high-value logs with ease

In today's data and AI economy, managing log data efficiently is more critical than ever. 

Logs provide the details of how data has been accessed, used and shared - essential information for showing what really happens with data and systems that are subject to compliance. Being able to find, analyse and securely share this information is essential for both analytics and legal purposes.

However, even in the short term, the cost of retaining logs mounts up so quickly that few organisations can afford to retain logs for any meaningful amount of time. 

Similarly, demonstrating the lineage of logs and their trustworthiness is key in any legal defence. 

LogLocker addresses these issues head-on, offering a cost-effective, data-minimising solution that preserves and protects logs with unparalleled blockchain-based security.

How LogLocker enhances Microsoft Sentinel

LogLocker enhances the capabilities of Microsoft Sentinel by providing targeted protection and cost-effective long-term storage for specific logs. It enables efficient log data management, using existing Sentinel alerts and queries to capture and store only the necessary information in LogLocker’s high-security, private blockchain. 

This targeted approach ensures that critical logs are ready for search, sharing, and review without the overhead of managing extraneous data. The blockchain basis of the solution ensures that logs can be shown to be preserved in their original state. 

Moreover, the system is easy to implement and use as it piggybacks on the queries already written by security teams to monitor and record sensitive data and telemetry. LogLocker uses the same KQL (Kusto Query Language) code security teams already use for monitoring purposes.

Getting started couldn't be easier for Azure customers as LogLocker is now available to purchase on the Azure Marketplace.
