Because LogLogicâ€™s product is so unique and effective in managing IT logs for all kinds of businesses and organizations, the company is growing at a rapid pace. Many businesses have started to use LogLogicâ€™s IT log platform, because of easy use and the ability of this platform to capture data logs from a log in real time. Because of this, LogLogic has almost doubled its customer base in 2008 and as of early 2009, the company added another 1,000 customers after acquiring Exaprotect.
According to Mike Goguen, Managing Partner at Sequoia Capital, LogLogic has shown great traction and its market performance is well above par. LogLogic has an aggressive vision for innovating leading log management solutions that effectively meet the needs of the companies which have a growing need to manage their IT logs and monitor all activity for records and security reasons. Furthermore, the fact that LogLogics has a good portfolio of Fortune 500 companies as its clients is a testament to the amazing success that LogLogics is having.
According to Pat Sueltz, CEO of LogLogics, as the company builds over the record growth it experienced in 2008, LogLogics is also expanding at a rather quick rate to bring to market a wide range of different products and services for its clients to aid in keeping track of their IT logs and keep them secure.
