SolarWinds Goes for Hat Trick in 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Awards (Multi-Video)

SolarWinds Log & Event Manager (LEM) combines real-time log analysis, event correlation and a groundbreaking approach to IT search to deliver the visibility, security and control you need to overcome everyday IT challenges. SIEM software has never been easier to use or more affordable.

Threats to IT networks continue to accelerate and evolve.

While enterprising hackers from external sources test the robustness of network security parameters, internal threats in the form of careless and malicious insiders remain a major and ongoing concern.

It is critical that agencies take steps to combat these threats—and SolarWinds® Log & Event Manager (LEM) is a powerful weapon.

SolarWinds LEM, Platinum Award Winner for Best Incident & Event Management Solution Two Years Running in the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is a comprehensive SIEM solution delivers dynamic, real-time log collection and analysis for immediate and actionable threat intelligence.

LEM can capture and analyze log data in real-time from multiple sources and specific incidents, allowing users to quickly identify and remediate threats, uncover policy violations, and resolve vital network issues.
