Scalable and Easy Collection of Network Device, Machine, and Cloud Logs
Log & Event Manager collects and catalogs log and event data in real-time from anywhere data is generated within your IT infrastructure. Explore the supported data sources.

Real-time, In-memory Event Correlation
By processing log data before it is written to the database, Log & Event Manager delivers true real-time log and event correlation, enabling you to immediately troubleshoot and investigate security breaches and other critical issues.

Threat Intelligence Feed
Leverage an out-of-the-box feed of known bad IPs to identify malicious activity. The feed regularly updates from a collection of research sources and automatically tags events as they enter the appliance. From there, you can quickly run searches or reports to view the suspect activity or create rules to perform automatic actions.

Advanced IT Search for Event Forensic Analysis
Log & Event Manager’s advanced ad-hoc IT search capability makes it easy to discover issues using a drag-and-drop interface that tracks events instantly. You can even save common searches for easy future reference.

Log Data Compression and Retention
Log & Event Manager stores terabytes of log data at a high compression rate for compliance reporting, compiling, and off-loading—reducing external storage requirements.

Embedded, Real-Time File Integrity Monitoring
Embedded File Integrity Monitoring delivers broader compliance support and deeper security intelligence for insider threats, zero-day malware, and other advanced attacks.

Built-in Active Responses
Log & Event Manager enables you to immediately respond to security, operational, and policydriven events using built-in active responses that take actions such as quarantining infected machines, blocking IP addresses, killing processes, and adjusting Active Directory settings.

USB Detection and Prevention
Log & Event Manager helps prevent endpoint data loss and protects sensitive data with real-time notification when USB devices connect, the ability to automatically block their usage and built-in reporting to audit USB usage.

User Activity Monitoring
Improve situational awareness by gaining insight into critical user activities. Learn when privileged accounts are being used, how they are being used, and from where.

Out-of-the-Box Security and Compliance Reporting Templates
Log & Event Manager makes it easy to generate and schedule compliance reports quickly using over 300 audit-proven templates and a console that lets you customize reports for your organization’s specific compliance needs.
