Log management and SIEM solutions process a wealth of information for meeting regulatory compliance, performance IT optimization and improving information security postures. One of the key components to a successful log management and SIEM project is ensuring that all data can be quickly accessed, easily filtered, and effectively distributed to the right audience.
One of the most effective and often overlooked ways to distribute meaningful data is through reporting. Most solutions provide pre-canned reports, but frequently lack the flexibility to easily create custom reports tailored to fit specific needs. This can make it difficult for an organization to efficiently leverage valuable operations, security and auditing event data. While it may not have the flash of other features, the right reporting engine can make all the difference.
LogRhythm’s Report Generator delivers the convenience of out-of-the-box reporting packages with the flexibility to easily create customer reports and report templates through a simple wizard interface.
Exception Based Reporting
Not everyone needs access to a SIEM interface, as long as they can access the right data required to accomplish their jobs. The problem they frequently face is obtaining the right information in a usable format.
LogRhythm makes exception-based reporting easy, automatically filtering data to allow report recipients to focus on meaningful event data. A wizard-based report and template writer makes it easy to create practical reports for any audience.
Numerous and easily selected output options mean reports can be sent in multiple formats for maximum flexibility. Individual users can receive data in the format that is most useful to them.
Facilitating Compliance Audits
Although many regulations are very specific about what an organization needs to do, preparing for an audit to show compliance can be difficult and time consuming. Organizations need an easy way to show which requirements are being met and the means to prove it.
LogRhythm provides automated compliance reporting packages that are tied to specific provisions within each regulation. Individual reports are mapped to specific requirements and are identified by the individual regulations that they address.
Role-based access controls and automated delivery ensure that the right information is delivered to the right people at the right time.
Executive Level Reporting
IT executives need to know what is going on across their network, but don’t have time to sift through details. They need to focus on what is obvious or most significant and provide direction, while relying on their staff to handle the myriad details.
LogRhythm provides executive-level summary and trending reports, providing a high-level overview of IT operations, security and auditing. These summaries make it easy to identify important network trends. High-level, visual representations make it easy to move from a macro view of the network to quickly setting priorities for areas of the network that need the most attention.
Executives can be assured of their investment – allowing others to focus on details while keeping an eye on the bigger picture.
