Most logging infrastructures mainly focus on SIEM analytics and correlations while log collection, log enrichment and log shipping end up taking a back seat. Meanwhile the adequacy of security operations is heavily dependent on the reliability and accuracy of available log messages. This uneven focus may result in unstructured or decentralized logging which in the long run can severely hinder information security, business continuity and regulatory compliance efforts. NXLog offers a solution to the most pressing challenges organizations face when it comes to central log collection and SIEM optimization.

Log Collection Challenges

The lack of a proper log collection solution can result in a number of difficulties

Decentralized infrastructure

Heterogenous and distributed environments with no transparency over where logs are coming from, where they should be headed or how they should be handled.

Conflicting data formats

Depending on the source, logs are written in a number of formats which is not necessarily optimal for the SIEM on the receiving end. This can result in conflict.

Performance issues

Log messages are produced and shipped in tremendous quantities. Without proper log collection in place crucial logs may be lost or the SIEM overflooded.
