LogRhythm Managed Security Service

Maximize your SIEM investment at a fraction of the cost of supporting LogRhythm in-house with Sword & Shield’s LogRhythm Managed Security Service.


LogRhythm is a highly effective security information and event management (SIEM) tool, consistently named as a Leader by Gartner, Inc. However, the power of the LogRhythm platform can also make it overwhelming to learn and a challenge to manage.

You need someone who knows how best to structure and deploy this robust system to ensure you fully leverage the product. With more than 20 years of cybersecurity and compliance experience, Sword & Shield Enterprise Security partners with you through our LogRhythm Managed Security Service to provide 24x7x365 expert SIEM monitoring and management.

Compare the Costs of Internal SOC Versus MSSP

The first question most companies ask when comparing MSSP versus in-house SIEM management is, “What will it cost?”.

Consider that the average security operations center (SOC) requires at least one manager and five to seven full-time SOC analysts. Using averages, salary, taxes, and benefits costs alone for a minimum SOC of five analysts quickly reaches more than $525,000 a year.

Costs for items such as office space, equipment, hosted cloud services, and technology can add up to an additional $100,000 a year or more.

Compare these totals to a typical MSSP monthly operational expense of $5,000 to $12,000*, and the cost benefit of using outsourced SIEM management services becomes apparent.

Overcome the Security Operations Center Obstacles

The biggest hurdle to managing a SIEM internally is creating and staffing the security operations center itself. Providing 24x7x365 coverage requires more staff than you might realize since turnover, scheduling, ramp-up time, emergencies and more must be taken into account.

Outsourcing your LogRhythm management to Sword & Shield’s award-winning MSSP overcomes these obstacles of handling this considerable effort in-house:

  • Finding the right people and in great enough numbers
  • Training staff
  • Weathering turnover
  • Dealing with scheduling conflicts
  • Acquiring physical space
  • Keeping systems up to date
