Why you need centralized logging and event log management
More companies are using their security logs to detect malicious incidents. Many of them are collecting too much log data—often billions of events. They brag about the size of their log storage drive arrays. Are they measured in terabytes or petabytes?

If you get so many alerts that you can’t adequately respond to them all, then something needs to change. A centralized log management system can help. This quick intro to logging and expert recommendations help new system admins understand what they should be doing to get the most out of security logs.
