While network monitoring is important for troubleshooting and ensuring availability, auditing logs generated by your network devices is crucial from a security aspect.
Syslogs from network devices (such as firewalls, IDS/IPS, routers, and switches) contain valuable details about important security events occurring in your network. A security information and event management (SIEM) solution can analyze these syslogs in real time and provide you with actionable insights to stop possible attacks.
- With a SIEM solution in place, you can:
- Regularly audit security events by scheduling reports.
- Detect security threats with real-time alerts.
- Speed up and streamline incident response.
