Managing Enterprise Security

Security management in today’s enterprise is like navigating the open ocean. You’re on an extended journey and any given day can bring smooth sailing, stormy seas or a rogue wave big enough to sink your entire network.


Managing network security requires vigilance and a strong infrastructure. It also requires a sound security strategy.


For one, the advent of SIEM (security information and event management) solutions has relieved security teams from the burdensome task of manually combing through massive amounts of security logs. It also relieves them of the duty of aggregating event data and deriving meaning from it – basically, performing security analysis. And, thanks to offerings from a number of technology vendors (including Juniper’s Secure Analytics), that heavy lifting can now be automated.


Another important aspect of security management for distributed Enterprises is being able to centrally view and manage policy across multiple firewall deployments. Manually configuring and updating policies for each firewall in each location isn’t feasible. The best solution? Utilize a centralized security management tool.

When it comes to SIEM, it is one of the most important piece of the puzzle to have a centralized log management solution in place. One tool that provides high-performance while it can scale to thousands of servers is NXLog, which as a multi-platform tool can collect logs from Linux, Windows, Android and more operating system. NXLog is also a great choice because it's open source and a free download is available at the website. When seriously considering SIEM or Audit solutions, it is really worth considering to use a log management solution like NXLog,which can collect and process logs from all servers within the network at a high-performance rate, and scale and run with continuous stability.
