Immediate Access to Your Data

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

Our Awards

Fluency continues to gain industry recognition for it's innovation.

Ease-of-Use is about Service

Implementing a solution should not burden existing personnel. Fluency Cloud is backed by award-winning service and support.

Parsers

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.

Database Administration

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.

Correlation Rules

Fluency's correlation is patented. During the parser analysis we normalize and type the data to allow proper correlation and merging.

Log Completeness

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.

SIEM Integration

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.

Why Fluency Is Different

Log Management is not simply parsing and storing records. Fluency is built to be compliant and provide fast access to data through simple search.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

- How long should my company keep its data?

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.

- Why or What is a Data Privacy Officer (DPO)?

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.

- What is the difference between hot and cold data? Who cares?

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.

- How does privacy impact audit compliance?

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.

Our Prices

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.
