Securicom, a managed IT security services vendor, has been appointed as the value-added distributor for logMojo’s innovative, cloud-based reporting service for Fortigate Firewalls for the African continent. As the value-added distributor of logMojo for Africa, Securicom will enhance the value of the logMojo service by providing local support to African companies and service providers who choose to make use of the logMojo service.

The logMojo security incident and event management (SIEM) solution is unique globally, delivering unparalleled capabilities for monitoring and managing Fortigate Firewalls – the world’s leading and most-trusted unified threat management (UTM) firewalls.

“South African companies are demanding rich reporting features and more detailed analytical tools for the intelligent management of Fortigate Firewalls. We searched extensively for a solution that could appropriately meet these requirements.”

“logMojo is the most advanced, feature-rich SIEM solution available for Fortigate Firewalls. As a value-added distributor, we can make it easier for local companies and Fortigate partners to access this world-leading technology while benefitting from local support,” says Richard Broeke, National Sales Manager at Securicom.

logMojo – backed by its distributed, parallel-processing cloud – combines high speed, real-time analysis of FortiGate logs with Intelligent Alerting and Dynamic Drill Down Reporting. logMojo provides complete visibility of all aspects of FortiGate Firewall including Application Control, Web Content Filtering, Intrusion Prevention, Network Traffic, Vulnerability Scanning, Data Leak Prevention, Antivirus, VPN/Remote Access, Wireless Network Connectivity and more.

The logMojo cloud is a proprietary, fault-tolerant, extremely fast, clustered parallel data execution engine built for Big Data based on the ideas and proven technologies in use at companies like Google, Yahoo, Facebook and Twitter. The ability to scale the logMojo cloud is virtually unlimited and can be quickly achieved through scale-out architecture.

logMojo is developed and operated by Security Confidence Corporation. The logMojo cloud-based SIEM was first released in 2004 to facilitate the needs of Security Confidence in performing Managed Security Services for its customers utilising FortiGate UTM Firewalls. Since then, logMojo has grown to be the best SIEM platform for Fortinet MSSPs and Fortinet Partners seeking to have detailed monitoring, management, alerting and reporting of FortiGate UTM Firewalls in a branded interface for their organisation.

“We are extremely excited about having a trusted organization like Securicom as our Value-Added Distribution Partner in Africa,” states Matthew Corney, president of Security Confidence.

“They are able to provide the regional support and knowledge needed for logMojo’s success in the African continent. Furthermore, they have already proven their ability to provide new partners and endusers – the complete account management we require to continue our high level of service and support standards,” continues Corney.

“The opportunities for the logMojo SIEM service in Africa are significant. No other SIEM solution can provide the degree of control over FortiGate Firewalls that logMojo can,” concludes Broeke.
