What makes security log analysis so challenging?

Log management in a distributed environment

In modern distributed setups, IT teams monitor multiple applications, users, and devices which can generate frequent events and alerts. Managing logs from all these sources is a complex task.

Search and analysis with inefficient tools

Teams correlate information spread across disparate logs coming from numerous endpoints, servers, and applications. Traditional tools are not equipped to handle this complexity.

Lack of visualization features

Teams monitor an endless stream of logs and events on their console, which can make capturing important trends and anomalies difficult. Lack of visualization also compounds troubleshooting.

Centralize all your security and event logs

SolarWinds® Loggly® helps you manage and analyze all your security and event logs in a centralized location. It accepts all kinds of text-based, structured, and unstructured logs. Moreover, in addition to your on-premises infrastructure and application, Loggly also allows you to monitor your cloud-based resources with logs.
