IBM Security Event and Log Management Service is an ASP-based solution that automatically aggregates, correlates, prioritizes and archives security events for cost-effective, 24 x 7 x 365 event and log management activities. This service simplifies enterprise-wide analysis of events and logs, collecting and storing essential data for up to seven years.
Like all IBM ISS managed services, the Security Event and Log Management Service operates via an easy-to-use web-based portal that gives customers rapid access to past and current security events - and equally simple but surprisingly powerful access to network-wide security forensics and analysis. This offering is highly optimized for the managed services environment, with data prioritization and compression features that handle large instances of event and log data without impacting normal network operations.
IBM Security Event and Log Management Service delivers detailed reports in real-time, for in-depth operational analysis that streamlines the process of documenting regulatory compliance. Compliance checks help demonstrate processes and procedures in place to protect critical data. Logs are stored for up to seven years, with complete access to archived data, including ad hoc and customized queries and reports.
Managed Security Event and Log Management Services - the smarter decision
At first, it might seem odd to outsource event or log management. After all, it is a bit counter-intuitive to collect data from one organization, move it to another for analysis, and then return it to the source for action. The economics of managed security event and log management, however, are persuasive. In-house event or log management requires a substantial investment in data collection, correlation, analysis and reporting infrastructure. These costs are in addition to hiring or retaining the technical and professional expertise necessary to design, implement and manage a security event and log management system that operates transparently underneath normal network and security operations and that operates on a continuous basis, day and night.
Better Security Event and Log Management solution
IBM ISS Security Event and Log Management Service represent a substantial improvement over other vendors' security event and log management software applications and managed services. The difference begins with IBM ISS itself. With more than 12 years of experience as a global leader and innovator in Internet security and 11 years providing Managed Security Services, IBM ISS has a breadth and depth of scale and experience that few organizations can match. In fact, IBM ISS operates six security operations centers available 24 x 7, across five continents. This international experience is ideal for any organization seeking a multinational services solution - or any smaller organization needing local knowledge and native language support.
