Log file monitoring is the process of collecting and observing log files from operations with your network. These data files provide detailed information from operating systems, servers and applications, and enable organisations to effectively monitor devices across their network.
These log files could come from many different sources, including:
- Security logs
- Office 365 user activity logs
- Domain Name System (DNS) logs
- Application logs
- System logs
- And many more
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) services, such as the one included in Defense.com™, allow you to collect, observe, filter and analyse log files and detect malicious activity inside your network.
