Need for Log Management
Compliance teams across organizations are looking for cost effective ways to collect and store relevant log data from numerous sources to comply with Sarbanes Oxley, PCI, FISMA, HIPAA and GLBA, and other regulatory mandates. In order to achieve this, aggregated log data must be retained, often for several years, in an easily accessible and searchable log repository. Log data also has the potential to enhance security postures, to assist in network and system management, and to improve service level agreements.
Networking, security and IT operations teams are realizing the need to capture and analyze larger volumes of log data across security and network sources for a variety of purposes. To support the evolving requirements of IT organizations, logs must be captured at very high rates and then made available in an easy-to-use manner to different constituents across the organization. At large enterprises, this could easily mean that 10,000+ events per second need to be collected and made available for further analysis. Along with high volume collection, organizations need a low cost and easily searchable archive that can store log data for multiple years as mandated by regulations.
