Every company wants their IT security to be as strong and efficient as possible. Heavy investments are often made in the latest computer systems and security software, as well as in highly qualified IT departments. There is one area that is often neglected though, and that is log management.
An effective IT security system needs to be proactive, and while the usual measures (anti-virus software, passwords etc.) make it difficult for people to compromise the network, you need to have something that detects actual breaches as and when they happen. With log data, you can do exactly that.
By analysing log events in real-time, you can expose any attack and the damage it has caused. If you collect and analyse your logs efficiently, you'll be able to see clearly what happens in your network. Each log file is an important piece of the puzzle that, once completed, gives a clear overview of your network. By identifying what is "normal", you'll be able to recognise unusual activity (such as misconfigured equipment and intrusion attempts), find the cause, and fix anything before it results in big problems.
To collect and use your log data in such a way, you need a log management system that will handle the data for you automatically and in a logical way. You need to gather and consolidate log files from all your servers and applications, and correlate events in real-time from all kinds of devices. This is where Logit.io comes in.
