Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions are widely deployed to protect networks from internal and external threats and comply with a variety of data protection regulations. SIEM solutions provide a dizzying array of charts, graphs and dashboards based on sophisticated event correlation analysis, but these analyses are only as good as the data collected from devices and applications.
syslog-ng can filter and classify hundreds of thousand of log messages per second, only forwarding relevant messages to your SIEM solution. Data can be forwarded to the SIEM in a unified format, reducing not only the amount but the complexity of data to be processed, improving query response time.
Many SIEM vendors offer usage-based licenses or capacity-limited hardware. Large networks produce massive amounts of log messages. However, not all those messages need to be analyzed and the stream of log messages is not uniformly distributed in time as network loads fluctuate over the course of the day. Syslog-ng can pre-process logs, enabling customers to lower initial investment costs.

"Syslog-ng leads the pack with its features and performance, but that alone does not make it ready for the enterprise. The fast response and in-depth knowledge of the Balabit support team make syslog-ng an easy choice."
