Log management and SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) are related but distinct security solutions.
While log management is focused on collecting, storing and analyzing logs, SIEM is focused on analyzing logs to detect and respond to security threats. SIEM solutions typically include log management capabilities, but also provide additional functionality such as real-time monitoring, correlation of events, incident management, and automated incident response.
Log management tools are used to help the organization manage the high volume of log data generated across the enterprise.
Unified data storage through centralized log aggregation
Improved security through a reduced attack surface, real-time monitoring and improved detection and response times
Improved observability and visibility across the enterprise through a common event log
Enhanced customer experience through log data analysis and predictive modeling
Faster and more precise troubleshooting capabilities through advanced network analytics
