With SolarWinds LEM, organizations get what they need to stay ahead of security threats, compliance violations, and operational issues – all in one package.

SolarWinds LEM surpasses other solutions by providing built-in Active Responses, event normalization, and a drag-and-drop UI to create custom dashboards easily.

Active Responses enable users to take automatic actions for hands-free threat mitigation, including shutting down breached systems, blocking IP addresses, killing unexpected processes, and disabling user accounts.

Event normalization makes reporting and identifying security incidents across different types of log sources simple.

Additionally, SolarWinds LEM provides advanced search functionality and easy-to-use data visualization tools to quickly explore log data, perform event forensics, and identify the root-cause of a security incident or network problem – fast.

SolarWinds LEM goes well beyond traditional SIEM solutions with key innovations like in-memory correlation, automated Active Responses, USB Defender technology, and a groundbreaking approach to IT search.

SolarWinds LEM’s latest release added threat intelligence feed integration to its already strong feature set, helping the system stay up-to-date on known threats.

Most importantly, SolarWinds listens to the IT security community to continually improve and update solutions based on user feedback and real-world needs.

SolarWinds’ user community, thwack, features a forum in which IT pros can request and vote on new features and thus directly influence product updates. Check out the SolarWinds LEM feature request forum to see this process in action.

SolarWinds LEM alleviates the complexity associated with compliance reporting by providing over hundreds of built-in, “audit-proven” report templates to address both internal policies and regulatory requirements, including NIST FISMA, DISA STIG, PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOX, and more.

Additionally, SolarWinds LEM is an integral part of a continuous monitoring strategy to maintain security and compliance.

SolarWinds LEM is available on the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule, Department of Defense ESI, and other contract vehicles.

SolarWinds software is built to scale and can support an IT environment of any size, small business IT shops and large enterprises alike, and is used by nearly every U.S. federal civilian agency, DoD branch and intelligence agency.

SolarWinds LEM employs a node-based license model vs. volume-based, allowing users to stay within a planned budget as they deploy and expand their IT infrastructures across multiple datacenters and geographies.

Further, a Workstation Edition license makes monitoring logs from Windows® workstations very cost effective.

SolarWinds: The Power To Manage IT

Face it: The vast majority of IT management tools today are difficult to use, expensive, and really do not address the realities of today’s real-world IT management challenges.

Sadly, IT pros have resigned themselves to accept this as just another part of the job. But we do not think enterprise software has to be as complicated as its made out to be.

At SolarWinds, we are fanatical about putting our users first in everything we do. We strive every day to deliver powerful functionality that is easy to use with one of the fastest and longest lasting ROIs in the market.
