Award-Winning Cloud Log Management focused on data retention and compliance.
How data is handled provides compliance. Fluency provides the technical controls and a build-it process flow to support audit compliance.
Fluency provides limitless access to data, even as the volume data scales. Fluency Cloud is a process composed of messaging nodes that parse, index, correlate, enhance, fuse, score and store log messages. For our largest customer, Fluency processes eight to twelve billion messages a day, with spikes of half a million events per second. All done in a three-system cluster.
All messages are parsed into fully indexed JSON documents

Implementing a solution should not burden existing personnel. Fluency Cloud is backed by award-winning service and support.
We do not require our customers to learn programming or regular expressions. During deployment or when you add new systems to your infrastructure, we write the log parsers.
Our database rocks! But we do not ask you to learn how to manage or study APIs. We manage the backend, so you can focus on the data.
Fluency's correlation is patented. During the parser analysis we normalize and type the data to allow proper correlation and merging.
While many devices have logs, they often change between version and system administrators. Besides writing parsers, we review the completeness and correctness of logs. Often, we find issues with time sync and missing fields.
Often we work with existing SIEMs. Fluency capacity costs are very low. We can take a feed and even provide events of interest to an existing SIEM.
Log Management is not simply parsing and storing records. Fluency is built to be compliant and provide fast access to data through simple search.
Data Retention has become the cornerstone for compliance. It has dominated security regulations for the last two years.

Fluency's patented correlation approach fuses like data into a single record.
Correlated logs provide a clear understanding of what each product sees.
Unique fields are normalized, indexed and merged with related data to provide new insight.
Time-based data, like current user and assigned system are merged at that moment.

Fluency makes audit compliance easy. But being compliant depends on understanding of what requirements need to be addressed and having people, processes and policies beyond the security controls Fluency provides.
First, you need to determine what regulations, laws or standards that your organization is addressing in its operations. PCI DSS sets the simplest data retention requirement with 90 days hot and one-year cold storage. New York Department of Financial Services (DFS) has set their standard at three years cold.
A Data Privacy Officer is responsible for monitoring how an organization handles data. This includes being the authority on categorizing data and being a point of contact for compliance requirements and privacy.
Cold data is considered not immediately searchable. When data is stored for operations, the data should be immediately available for search. Searchable data is considered hot. But storing data in a data structure for searching is expensive and often unnecessary. PCI DSS defines that data should remain hot for a minimum of 90 days. After which, the logs still need to be stored if needed. This long-term not as easily accessible data is referred to as cold.
Privacy creates complexity in the handling of data. While laws require that audit trails be immutable (cannot be deleted), new data privacy laws require that personal identifiers in audit be able to be deleted. When a user's identifying data is to be stored, the audit system stores instead a pseudonym (unique one-way token that acts as a key). The key and related value for that pseudonym are stored in a table that allows deletion. When a user's identity is removed, it is done by deleting the pseudonym key-value. This allows other log data not to be deleted, especially when it contains other pseudonym that are involved in criminal or incorrect activity. Pseudonym are not one-way hashes for the value can be determined by brute force, a mistake that some large audit vendors are making.
Data Retention is priced on a capacity basis. it makes sense, this is a company's cost of goods. The standard to measuring cost for log management is the cost to store one gigabyte of raw data for 30 days, or gb/month. Fluency has the lowest gb/month available. Cloud solutions typically cost between four to five dollars, this includes open source cloud services. This cost difference is why Fluency customers are able to store everything and be audit compliant.
