Lower Risk, Improve Security Posture and Reduce Operational Complexity
Meeting compliance mandates has caused vendors to build log management solutions that focus on storage and canned reporting but don't make the data useful for day-to-day operations, security, and the deluge of one-off requests from auditors. Log data is the definitive record of what's happening in a business or agency and is an underutilized important source of truth for troubleshooting issues and supporting broader business objectives. Application logs and other machine data that's highly variable, and in some cases unstructured, contains important data that traditional log management solutions don't support or simply miss.
