In this era of competitive and sophisticated expansion scenarios, it is crucial for organizations to look at their enterprise information security posture. In any IP network, almost every device starting from firewalls to servers generates logs of the traffic it carries, the transactions it makes and the activities it conducts. This data is vital to secure the enterprise network. But monitoring thousands of devices, where each device produces thousands of events, every second of a day can be enormous task.
An important driver of outsourcing security services is to satisfy regulative and compliance requirements and to cut back value, particularly within the current environment of highly constrained security budgets where its troublesome for organizations to defend themselves against emerging threats and simultaneously maintaining the business continuity.
