Analyze and Correlate Logs to Identify Threats to Your Managed Networks
Managed services providers (MSPs) face challenges around gathering and correlating log data. Customers have different configurations, applications may have different log output formats, and many text-search tools carry limitations that can lead to key log data being overlooked or omitted.
To top it off, manually gathering and correlating log data can be complex and time-consuming. Many MSPs lack the time and in-house expertise to devote to this. This can lead to event logs piling up, while potential cyberincidents remain undetected.
SolarWinds® Threat Monitor is designed to reduce complexity by automating the log correlation and normalization process. This can potentially help reduce time spent gathering and analyzing event logs, so you can focus on identifying threats to your managed networks.
Log Management System
The log correlation feature is designed to provide:
- Log aggregation and correlation: Recognize attacks sooner by analyzing logs from across your user base in a single solution. Threat Monitor automatically collects logs and data feeds from nearly everything on your managed networks—including networking equipment, firewalls, and servers.
- Automatic log normalization: Gain actionable insights from log analysis tools that automatically correlate and normalize logs—even in large environments—to help you identify the relationships between ongoing events.
- Help with demonstrating regulatory compliance: Threat Monitor can help you gather information during the log correlation process to help you show you have a strong security monitoring policy. This can often assist with demonstrating compliance.
- Visibility to the customer: Access reports that itemize security-related events and threats identified within a specified period and demonstrate the steps taken to address the risks. These reports can help demonstrate the value of your security services.
