Its another year and another 5 stars for SolarWinds Log and Event Manager in SC Magazine’s SIEM Group test!  The reviewers tested every aspect of our SIEM - with a dual focus on log and event management as well as strong attention to usability, scalability, reporting, third party support, and ease of implementation.

 

The verdict? “This is a solid product, worthy of consideration.”


SolarWinds has put together another outstanding product. The SolarWinds Log & Event Manager (LEM) offers a quality set of log management, event correlation, search and reporting facilities. This gives organizations the ability to collect large volumes of data from virtually any device on a network in real time and then correlate the data into actionable information. The company does this by paying attention to the need for real-time incident response and effective forensics, as well as security and IT troubleshooting issues. Another winning set of features are the quality regulatory compliance management and ready-made reporting functions.”

 

With the increase of attacks on compliant companies, the previously separate focuses of security and compliance are converging.  At the same time, attack methods are growing more sophisticated and harder to detect.  At SolarWinds, we are dedicated to providing the situational awareness and visibility previously only available to large enterprises to companies of every size.  We are pleased that SC Magazine saw the results of our efforts.

 

Their one weakness we can easily address: “Consider a Ticket Management System for smaller companies”.  We offer Alert Central as a free ticket management system that easily integrates with LEM.  For those that need more robust reporting and tracking, we also offer Web Help Desk as a low cost alternative.
