LogRhythm, the company empowering security teams to navigate the ever-changing threat landscape with confidence, announced its partnership with Zscaler, the leader in cloud security. LogRhythm and Zscaler work together to help organizations around the globe increase network insight and address a variety of cloud access security challenges faced by the modern SOC. LogRhythm SIEM and the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange™ platform provide unparalleled visibility and security to facilitate a modern Zero Trust architecture.
Zscaler secures all user, workload, and device communications over any network, anywhere. The integration with LogRhythm provides visibility into everything occurring in your network, and the websites and cloud-based resources employees are using. This level of visibility is crucial to protecting organizations. With a Zero Trust approach on many organizations’ minds, it’s imperative to have the right tools to defend against cyber threats. The LogRhythm SmartResponse™ for Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA)™ enables remediation actions from the LogRhythm console. As logs are ingested from Zscaler’s Nanolog Streaming Service (NSS) into the LogRhythm SIEM platform, the LogRhythm SmartResponse™ for Zscaler can also automatically denylist the URL in Zscaler when a banned keyword or URL is detected.
“Securing an organization’s systems and networks begins with high-fidelity and trustworthy log data. LogRhythm’s expertise in turning log data into actionable insights delivered through dashboards and analytics is unrivaled in the industry,” said Andrew Hollister, Chief Information Security Officer at LogRhythm. “The combined benefits of LogRhythm SmartResponse™ and Zscaler Internet Access facilitate modern Zero Trust architecture that is the security backbone of companies across the globe.”
The LogRhythm SmartResponse™ for Zscaler performs several actions including denylisting a URL, getting policy information, and adding a URL category. It simplifies running actions between the SIEM and Zscaler by centralizing day-to-day security tasks to a single console. Other key benefits of this integration include: Simplified ingestion and contextualization of Zscaler log data Accelerated detection of unwanted or denylisted URLs Use of a single console to investigate and block suspicious website access Faster response with enhanced investigative capabilities
“Zscaler’s Zero Trust Exchange reduces the attack surface and enforces cybersecurity policies, and this new integration with LogRhythm can help security teams with richer insights," said Amit Raikar, VP of Technology Partnerships at Zscaler. "By leveraging Zscaler APIs for cloud-to-cloud log streaming, LogRhythm customers can gather threat and policy telemetry across a hybrid workforce accessing multicloud and SaaS applications, giving analysts a complete picture from the depth of information in Zsacler logs for optimal threat hunting and investigations."
This new announcement continues LogRhythm’s impressive momentum from 2022 into this year. In addition to announcing a series of expanded capabilities and integrations for its security operations solutions, which included updates to the company’s cloud-native LogRhythm Axon platform, LogRhythm also announced its integration with SentinelOne. The integration streamlines security operations and improves response workflow, helping overwhelmed security teams cut through the noise and gain precise insights into cybersecurity threats.
LogRhythm helps security teams stop breaches by turning disconnected data and signals into trustworthy insights. From connecting the dots across diverse log and threat intelligence sources to using sophisticated machine learning that spots suspicious anomalies in network traffic and user behavior, LogRhythm accurately pinpoints cyberthreats and empowers professionals to respond with speed and efficiency.
With cloud-native and self-hosted deployment flexibility, out-of-the-box integrations, and advisory services, LogRhythm makes it easy to realize value quickly and adapt to an ever-evolving threat landscape. Together, LogRhythm and our customers confidently monitor, detect, investigate, and respond to cyberattacks.

Lookout, Inc., the endpoint-to-cloud security company, today announced the availability of Lookout Mobile Endpoint Security, the industry's most advanced mobile endpoint detection and response (EDR) offering for managed security service providers (MSSPs). This solution enables MSSPs to deliver a complete turn-key program for identifying risk, protecting sensitive data and securing their customers' mobile devices. With Lookout's Mobile EDR, MSSPs can help organizations reduce the risk of a data breach through mobile phishing, ransomware and exploitation of device and app vulnerabilities.
While businesses are adapting to the "new normal" of remote working and continuing to invest in mobile devices, many are still struggling with keeping up with mobile security. According to industry data, less than half of SMBs specifically have any form of mobile security in place1 – as a result mobile threats are on the rise year over year. In Lookout's recent Global State of Mobile Phishing report, 2022 marked the highest percentage of mobile phishing encounter rates ever, with an average of more than 30% of personal and enterprise users exposed to these attacks every quarter. Lookout also found that users on all devices – whether personal or work provided – are tapping more on mobile phishing links in comparison to just two years ago2.
A Turn-Key Program to Close Security Gaps and Manage Mobile Risk
Lookout's Mobile EDR program for MSSPs allows them to address these mobile security challenges head on – by partnering with Lookout, MSSPs have access to the Lookout mobile dataset of security telemetry, which is built on graph-based machine intelligence that analyzes data globally from more than 210 million devices, 175 million apps and ingests four million web URLs daily. In addition, Lookout's comprehensive Mobile EDR solution enables MSSPs to detect and block mobile phishing attempts; detect unauthorized camera and mic access through surveillanceware; detect and prevent credential theft and data exfiltration; detect device compromise; check all apps for risky behavior; and detect app and OS vulnerabilities. Lookout also helps MSSPs reduce resource constraints by decreasing their policy administration time by 80%. Other operational benefits for MSSPs include a 95% user self remediation rate and optimized battery consumption leading to less support tickets as well as built-in multi-tenancy for easier management.
"As the threat landscape becomes increasingly sophisticated, businesses of all sizes must evolve their security strategy to keep up with and proactively address these threats, yet many do not have the security tools or skill sets in place to tackle this on their own," said Eva-Maria Elya, vice president, MSSP Sales at Lookout. "The MSSP ecosystem becomes a natural partner for them to turn to for help in managing their security posture, including identifying risk, ensuring compliance and safeguarding sensitive data across their device landscape. By extending our channel partner program to MSSPs, we help ensure these customers have access to the best security solutions delivered through the leading MSSP organizations."
The Lookout Mobile EDR program for MSSPs is available today. For more information on how Lookout supports SMB customers and MSSPs, click here.
