When people talk about SIEM, they don’t usually focus on usability. Vendors tend to focus strictly on log processing capabilities. To be fair, you want your SIEM solution to have cutting edge threat mitigation features. But at the same time, ease of use is just as important when it comes to managing IT security, especially when responding to security incidents and troubleshooting.
EventLog Analyzer is comprehensive log management software for SIEM that can help you achieve network security. On top of that, it’s easy to deploy and easy to use. Here are a few ways EventLog Analyzer enhances SIEM usability.
1. Group frequently used reports under “Favorite reports”
You may use certain reports more frequently, or may want to monitor certain types of events across all of your devices. EventLog Analyzer allows you to group various reports under “Favorites” to easily track events of interest. For instance, you can create your own report group called “Alert Favorites,” containing reports such as “Critical events based on host,” “Threat detections by McAfee,” “Printer document theft,” and more, so you can quickly access what you need.
2. Easy log searches
A personal favorite of mine, EventLog Analyzer provides intuitive search functionalities that enable you to easily construct complex search queries to efficiently troubleshoot and backtrack security attacks. The is supplemented with the group, range, and wildcard search functionalities to give you full control over your log data.
3. Save a search query as an alert profile
Export the results of a search query as a report for later reference. In addition, you can save the search query itself as an alert so that when the search criteria are met, i.e. the same sequence of events in the query occurs, you will receive an alert via SMS or email. The alert criteria field is automatically populated from the search query, allowing you to set up the alert in a few clicks. So, the next time you face the same attack pattern, you won’t need to frantically search through your logs again. Instead, the alerts you previously set will be triggered, allowing you to proactively mitigate security threats.
It’s the little things that go a long way in terms of usability. EventLog Analyzer empowers you to efficiently and easily manage your machine logs for ultimate security. Learn more about EventLog Analyzer .
