Unlike NXLog, most other logging solutions lack some significant feature or functionality.
If some of your assets include Windows workstations, you won’t be able to efficiently aggregate security logs from all of the sources on those devices unless you have NXLog Enterprise Edition.
All it takes is one successful security breach by the right attacker on one of these unmonitored nodes for you to watch the IT infrastructure that you once knew crumbles before your eyes.
The biggest challenge that most logging systems have is the ability to read and parse unstructured logs from practically any log file format and transform them into the structured format that your SIEM requires.
With NXLog, you’ll also be able to keep your costs to a minimum.
For SIEMs that bill by data volume ingested, NXLog’s highly customizable filtering will allow you to send only a fraction of the log data you’re probably sending to your SIEM today.
You’ll be able to discard low-value events of no security value and forward only meaningful data.
Also, with NXLog’s extremely small footprint and modular design, it uses extremely little resources and can be deployed on workstations without any noticeable impact on users' day-to-day activities.
Likewise, even large enterprises can use commodity hardware to build clusters of NXLog relay nodes for scaling their log aggregation needs as they continue to grow.
To summarize, NXLog provides a platform-agnostic, end-to-end log collection solution using a robust, modular, distributed architecture that is unparalleled in its flexibility, functionally, and variety of third-party integrations.
It is the all-in-one solution: one logging tool that can rule them all, and do it all.
