A Legacy of Commitment and Trust
ScienceLogic has a long history of employing security best practices to deliver solutions that our customers can trust. Cyber-attacks are rising in frequency, sophistication, and the extent of damage they can inflict upon an organization’s operations, reputation, or worse, their customers. Therefore, ScienceLogic continues to maintain security vigilance and regularly evaluates vulnerabilities to ensure a robust security posture. Explore our multi-pronged approach to securing our solutions including customer data, and earning their trust.
Product Security Features
- Deployment options: Choose your preferred deployment option: ScienceLogic-Managed SaaS, Customer-Managed On-Premises or Public Cloud. As your environment grows in scale, additional collectors can be deployed to cover additional infrastructure or geographic regions. Everything is centrally managed and accessed through a single web interface.
- Government-specific deployments:
- To meet U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) specifications, there is an option to install as a Military Unique Deployment (MUD) to comply with DoDIN APL (DoD Information Network Approved Products List) requirements.
- FedRAMP authorized solutions are available via our channel partners.
- Contact us to learn more.
- Secure user login: Customers can continue to adhere to their corporate policies via several authentication mechanisms such as configurable password requirements, SSO, Client Certificate & CAC Authentication. SL1 supports enterprise-grade single sign-on (SSO) integration options for SAML and Active Directory/LDAP, as well as local authentication using email address and a password. User logins can be secured by multi-factor authentication.
- Flexible access & permission management: SL1 allows customers to manage granular, role-based access for users and groups locally or via Active Directory, LDAP, SAML, CAC, PIV and multiple Identity Providers (IdPs) simultaneously.
- Audit logs: View an audit trail of actions performed by users in the platform, including user logins and logouts.
- Monitor for illicit behavior: Setup alerts and events for monitoring unwanted behavior such as illicit processes, changes in performance, domain records, open ports, etc.
- Dedicated instances: SL1 SaaS customers are deployed in their own dedicated instance of SL1 in ScienceLogic’s public cloud environment, inherently ensuring data segregation between customers.
- Data access by ‘Organizations’: SL1’s built-in multi-tenancy allows customers to organize data by ‘Organizations’ within the same instance of SL1. This adds another layer of logical separation of customer data and better role-based access control by department, region, line of business, etc.
Highly Secure Data Centers
- Secure data handling: SL1 SaaS is deployed in AWS, which runs in ISO 27001 certified data centers. SL1 follows industry standards for encrypting data. Data collection and transmission from SL1 Agents, SL1 Collectors, or via platform integrations is secured with white-listing, SSH tunnels, PhoneHome methods (to limit firewall configuration changes), and ‘Least Privileged’ access to each customer environment. Stored data is protected with AES encryption. Data in transit is protected via Transport Layer Security (TLS). Customers who use CrowdStrike can install CrowdStrike Agents on ScienceLogic SL1 collectors for extended endpoint protection of SL1 devices on customer networks.

- Resiliency & redundancy: The microservices-based SL1 SaaS platform is designed to be highly redundant when deployed. The SL1 SaaS platform and its components (Compute, Storage, and Database nodes) are deployed in a highly redundant configuration across a cluster of data centers. The failure of one component automatically redirects traffic to a replica of the node instance within the redundant cluster, minimizing impact to the SL1 SaaS platform availability.
Incident Response Management
- Continuous vigilance: Performance, availability, and security events are constantly monitored, and alerts are sent to a dedicated incident response team. Report security incidents here.
Software Supply Chain Security
- Security design considerations: Security starts in the requirements and design phase. That’s where our security architects help analyze potential attack vectors using threat modelling techniques before the actual implementation starts.
Secure Software Development Lifecycle Practices
- Secure SDL: ScienceLogic enforces security best practices throughout the software development lifecycle such as OWASP 10 and peer code reviews. These best practices include:
- Automatically scanning for vulnerabilities and malware.
- Automatically running thousands of automated tests.
- Automatically signing assets and verifying signatures during installation.
- Conducting manual penetration testing.
- Ensuring all artifacts are transferred and stored encrypted.
- Tracking changes via a change management process.
Access to source code repositories is limited on both the network and the user level. Only authorized users can access code repositories and make changes to source code. Source code management systems are only accessible from within the ScienceLogic corporate network. Remote access to the ScienceLogic corporate network requires multi-factor authentication (MFA). Contact us to learn more.
- Secure distribution: ScienceLogic implements several security controls and uses industry best practices to protect ScienceLogic software components like SL1, SL1 Agent and Collectors, and SL1 PowerPacks from malicious manipulation by attackers on the way to our customers’ infrastructure.
All steps are fully automated, from source code being compiled to binaries, to the upload of the binaries to the AWS infrastructure where they are available for customers to download. No manual, error-prone steps are involved. Data in transit is encrypted using industry standards (TLS 1.2). Every storage location involving data at rest is encrypted as well.
All installation packages are scanned for malicious software and digitally signed before they’re uploaded to AWS. The signatures are automatically verified during the update process on the customer infrastructure. If a verification fails (for example, due to installation package manipulation by an attacker), the update process is stopped. Learn more about our security features.
Internal & External Penetration Testing
- Internal and third-party tests: On an ongoing basis, we test new and existing features. Our internal penetration tests are led by a certified penetration tester in our Security team. Our external penetration tests are performed bi-annually by independent security firms.
- On-going scanning: Vulnerability scanning is performed regularly using static code analysis, dynamic runtime scans, network scans, and third-party component scans.
- Onboarding & ongoing checks: External vendor products that are leveraged within the SL1 platform, or leveraged for delivery of the platform are subjected to a detailed security assessment to guard against various attacks such as attempts to inject malicious code, hijack internal processes etc.
- Vendors are evaluated prior to onboarding and on a periodic basis or whenever there’s a significant change in their cyber risk rating.
- All third-party libraries are evaluated for quality, performance, licensing, and vulnerabilities and require approval before being used.
Employee Awareness & Background Checks
- Training & awareness: ScienceLogic conducts annual employee and contractor security training with quarterly boosters and spot-training as needed. Training topics include Ransomware, Social Media, Credential Management, Impersonation Attack, Data Handling, Fraud, Phishing, Identity Theft, etc. Additionally, employees participate in role-specific security training.
- Secure access: Remote employees are required to log in using secure VPN with MFA.
- Background checks: New employees are put through rigorous background checks.
