LogSentinel’s 2020 Year in Review

The events of 2020 brought us unprecedented challenges that no one was prepared for, changing the way we live, work, and communicate, impacting the global economy, all geographic regions, and every single industry. In such a downturn cybercrime flourishes, especially when organizations move most of their operations and processes online. In this context, the exponentially increasing need for stronger data protection and information security has made LogSentinel’s mission ever more relevant and urgent.

As we are now into the last days of 2020, and while most will be happy to see the end of what has been an extremely hard year, we are grateful for the recognition and lessons it has brought us and would like to take a look back and reflect on what we, at LogSentinel, have achieved during the past 12 months and how we have grown in the midst of these extreme circumstances.

Evolving to SIEM

During the past years, we have been continuously improving the capabilities of our products – SentinelTrails and SentinelDB. Some of our clients were using them alongside their SIEM, to cover their compliance needs, or simply to be able to collect and analyze logs that other solutions did not support out-of-the-box. One day we sat down and asked ourselves whether we can do more to address our bigger vision. And we realized that SentinelTrails has naturally evolved to be a next-generation security information and event management (SIEM) system – a category considered a cornerstone for information security. Not just that, but that we had developed unique features that solve critical problems that other SIEMs don’t.


LogSentinel SIEM is what has come naturally out of our efforts to secure the logs of not just of the large enterprise, but also of the SMEs. We are proud to have evolved to a state where we can offer a sophisticated security solution that was previously thought to be only fit for large enterprises, to customers that could not have afforded it, and who are left vulnerable because of that. Because the world won’t be more secure if only a few large enterprises buy every security product out there. It will be more secure if every enterprise has access to the best tools.
