IT security should be one of the main focus points of all enterprises.
In today’s world, when digital transformation is taking place at an unprecedented pace, securing online data is vital for all kinds of businesses. This is why most companies are utilizing SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) solutions that help them identify threats before they can do any harm.
Even though SIEM tools are perfect for event correlation and analytics, it is not part of their core functionality to manage log collection, filtering, distribution, and formatting.
They may be missing those additional log collection and enrichment features, such as being able to collect from other types of log and data sources, being able to parse, or convert log formats.
This is where a centralized log collection solution enters the picture and fills in the gaps between SIEM and the numerous heterogenous data sources.
In this article, we are going to elaborate on some major issues with depending solely on a SIEM solution to manage all aspects of IT security.
