Introduction


Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is an important need of IT Departments in all companies. Machine-generated logs (which include logs generated by network systems, devices and applications) need to be collected, analyzed, archived, searched, and reports generated for the purpose of IT security audit and compliance of various regulatory acts like PCI-DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, SOX, GLBA, etc. This helps companies meet network asset-based SIEM objectives. Apart from this, network administrators and IT managers look at machine-generated logs as a critical source for troubleshooting network anomalies and system performance problems. Efficient event log analysis or syslog analysis reduces system downtime, increases network performance, and helps tighten security policies of the enterprise.
