An organization has a number of dedicated tools responsible for the security of its technical infrastructure. Each of these tools generates logs and in turn, the accumulated log data is so large in size that it is not feasible for a security analyst to manually go through it. Further, log data coming from multiple sources may not be coherent and hence, establishing correlation using human logic unnecessarily laborious.
Being a primary and essential component of present-day SIEM solution, log management includes data parsing and aggregation, normalization, indexing, analysis, and retention for future use. Logsign’s effective log analysis assists an internal team by presenting the most relevant and useful insights by using efficient sorting and correlation algorithms.
Logsign aggregates various types of log data such as network logs, system logs, and audit logs from a wide array of sources such as VPNs, switches, routers, anti-virus applications, firewalls, servers, etc. The collected data is then normalized so that coherency of data is maintained.
Log data gets collected continuously from various security tools. It is then immediately normalized and analyzed on a unified platform. Features such as High Availability and Remediation from Critical Status present a security analyst with actionable results.
Using big data analytics, Logsign’s SIEM solution supports high-speed search capability using the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDPS).
After collected data is normalized, Logsign suggests various actions that can be directly taken by an analyst after suitable analysis on data is performed. This significantly reduces the time taken in decision-making process.
Logsign’s SIEM solution is compliant with a variety of laws such as FISMA, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, NERC, etc. and standards such as PCI DSS and ISO 27001. Since the requirements are fulfilled, there is no additional requirement on your part to meet the fulfilment criterion.
For even the smallest of actions, an entry is made into the log. A centralized log management solution is needed to sort through the plethora of data and find the relevant entries. Organizations having various security tools can deploy Logsign’s SIEM solution for centralized aggregation of log data.
Normalization techniques, correlation algorithms, and mapping techniques used by Logsign perform a thorough method to parse data without missing any critical piece of information. The predefined reports coming with Logsign’s SIEM solution are customizable, easy-to-update, and highly scalable.
