Modex, the blockchain database company, is proud to announce that it has entered into a partnership with NxLog, a company specialized in providing powerful multi-platform log collection and management solutions that support companies in detecting security risks, policy breaches or analyze operational problems in server logs, operation system logs and application logs. The newly established Modex – NxLog partnership sets an ideal foundation for future technological integration between the extensive suite of services provided by NxLog and Modex’s Blockchain Database (BCDB) solution.
In the current enterprise landscape, IT infrastructures are becoming increasingly demanding in regard to the abundance of logs that needs to be collected, processed, and stored. This data-focused approach to business operations is built upon a vast network of devices, applications, and appliances that produce vast quantities of event log messages that need to be channeled through multiple data pipelines, filtered, classified and correlated to generate quantitative and qualitative value, that needs to be stored in a secure and easy to access the data center.
The majority of solutions present on the market solve these essential tasks by connecting multiple different scripts (a set of instructions used to customize and automate repetitive tasks in the workflow of a company) and programs that require a custom format and configuration. As the number of scripts and programs needed for log processing and collection grows, it becomes increasingly difficult for the in-house team of developers to monitor and manage the performance of each component.
NxLog is a high-performance multi-platform log collection solution that provides an alternative to existing solutions, by providing multiple log collection and management functionalities, all bundled together into a single package, accessible through a streamlined user-friendly interface. With both a Community Edition and an Enterprise Edition, NxLog presents itself as a fast and reliable solution that works with a wide range of security information and event management systems (SIEM) and log analytics products and services. NxLog is fully compatible with Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, macOS and can be configured to act as a collector agent, log server or log relay that supports hybrid modes.
The Enterprise Edition of NxLog also comes with a Log Manager system that is structured as a web-based application that can be used from a browser through which users can manage and monitor a large number of NXLog Enterprise Edition instances effortlessly. Remote management is accomplished over a secure trusted TLS connection with mutual certificate verification. It also comes with a built-in public key infrastructure to streamline certificate and key management. In addition, NxLog supports a series of add-ons that enable the pulling of events using REST API, even and log files collection as well as audit log retrieval.
Modex CTO, Dragos Rautu: “NxLog ranks among the top log collection and management solutions from the market, so it is only natural to establish a partnership with them that will benefit both companies. Earlier this year, Modex set in motion its strategy to integrate with the most popular log collection solutions present on the market and store them on Modex BCDB for immutable logs. The newly formed partnership between Modex and NxLog will act as a starting point for any future technological integrations.”
