Log Monitoring

Why Log Monitoring is now critical for your company

By | Log Monitoring

Every organization needs secure IT but sometimes companies miss a fundamental step: log file management.

There is a massive migration to the cloud. More IT infrastructures move to public clouds such as Amazon Web Services Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud every day. Log analysis and log monitoring are both becoming more and more critical for your company. Performance of cloud based servers can fluctuate based on the loads, number of users and the environment and as a result, security and reliability can become significant problems. In all of this, Log analysis and management is the answer. DevOps engineers, system admins, engineers, and developers can use logs to make better data driven decisions. Servers and firewalls keep log files that record events. This information can provide data about hostile activity on your network. Log data can also provide information for identifying equipment problems before a major event occurs. However the volume of most log files makes quick analysis impossible. IT Logs can be massive. Log management tools provide real time analysis and reporting on what is happening within your cloud network or local environments relating hardware , threats, users or employee activity.

24/7 alerts and reporting

Log analysis software can automate the seemingly impossible process of reading logs and responding to their information. Managers usually use log analysis to become aware of security events that can affect the entire organization. The world of IT security is evolving fast. You need to ensure you have the network security in place to block threats. Organizations need a plan in place to deal with those threats. Log files will play an important part in your ongoing cloud security effort.
