LEM saved us from a hack

LEM saved us from a hack

Just the other week, we received an alert (understatement, as Log and Event Manager sent us alerts every minute) that something was wrong, and an intruder made it through our first layer of defense. After investigating, LEM logged a firewall attack (SSL v2) that made it through our first layer of defense. This attack came from Asia, and they were scanning every external IP address from our ISP. Luckily, our 2nd layer blocked the attack, and dropped the connection, so our network was protected...

My engineer made the security changes to the first layer of defense, double checked everything else, and reset the alert.

Thank you SolarWinds and LEM for saving the day!
