Security firm Palo Alto Networks has launched its cloud-based Logging Service in Europe.

The Logging Service enables customers to collect large amounts of their own security data from the company's Next-Generation Security platform. In return, customers will see large scale log collection affordable whilst addressing data privacy and location requirements for European organisations.

The service will also mean that organisations are no longer restricted by hardware capacity, and data will then be stored in a data centre in the EU. The Logging Service provides a centralised and scalable logging infrastructure without operational overhead, allowing customers to collect log data without local compute and storage limitations.

Processing of raw logs is automated, and logs are retained until they are overwritten, based on either the amount of storage available to the customer or the customer's retention policy.

Furthermore, customers can enable or disable sharing of log types with the Logging Service, in accordance with their policies. Information is not shared with any third parties, and any logs stored on or processed by Palo Alto Networks systems are secured with state-of-the-art technologies.

Lee Klarich, chief product officer, Palo Alto Networks, said: "Organisations today are often challenged by an inability to collect large volumes of data and turn it into actionable insights to optimise their security posture. The Logging Service allows our customers to do this and to meet changing business needs, simplify operations and increase automation.

"Having our Logging Service in Europe ensures that our customers can benefit from these data collection capabilities while ensuring that their data remains within Europe to meet their privacy needs."
