Loggly Releases Multi-Factor Authentication for Secure Log Analysis

04 May 2017

Customers Using SSO from Identity Management Providers like Google, Microsoft ADFS, and Okta Gain Additional Protection for Log Data

SAN FRANCISCOMay 4, 2017 – Loggly, the company behind the world’s most popular cloud-based, enterprise-class log management service, today announced the immediate availability of multi-factor authentication through single sign on (SSO) identity providers such as Google, Microsoft ADFS, Okta, OneLogin, Oracle, Ping Identity, SecureAuth, and Shibboleth. This enables customers to provide DevOps personnel, developers, customer support representatives, and a variety of other users with enhanced security measures to control access to data contained in logs.

“Enterprises that use Loggly recognize the potential value of their log data,” said Charlie Oppenheimer, CEO at Loggly. “They want to give access to more employees, anytime and anywhere, so those employees can work more productively to troubleshoot problems and optimize their applications. However, they need enterprise-grade authentication to give this broad access.”

With two-factor authentication (2FA) or multi-factor authentication (MFA) in place, Loggly users are granted access to log data only by successfully presenting two or more factors of authentication to their identity provider. Loggly accesses the organization’s identity provider via the Loggly federated identity management feature. This feature utilizes Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 and supports Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS). It is available with Loggly Enterprise subscription plans.

Summary of Benefits

  • Faster mean time to resolution: Give everyone access to valuable log insights with fast, secure logins.
  • A better customer experience: Extend log management to front-line support representatives who work directly with affected customers.
  • Improved security: Protect log data from unauthorized use and prevent costly data breaches.
