More than a million users worldwide trust syslog-ng to deliver log data from across their IT environments


“Without CLM, incident response activities associated with reviewing events in system logs becomes a multiweek effort, as logs are manually reviewed by administrators and analysts, and manual correlation of events is attempted.”

— Gartner, Use Central Log Management for Security Event Monitoring Use Cases, Toby Bussa, Kelly M. Kavanagh, 12 October 2016


Use Cases

Optimizing SIEM

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions are widely deployed to protect networks from internal and external threats. They provide alerting and reporting capabilities based on sophisticated event correlation analysis, but these analyses are only as good as the data collected from devices and applications.


syslog-ng is the log management solution that improves the performance of your SIEM solution by reducing the amount and improving the quality of data feeding your SIEM.


Rapid Search and Troubleshooting

Whether you need to respond to a security incident, troubleshoot infrastructure issues, or debug applications, searching millions or billions of logs quickly is usually the first step. Having the right log data at the right time easily accessible is critical to your success.


With the syslog-ng Store Box, you can find the answer. Search billions of logs in seconds using full text queries with Boolean operators to pinpoint critical logs.


Meeting Compliance Requirements

IT departments increasingly find themselves spending ever more resources on compliance as laws, regulations and industry standards mandate increasing security awareness and the protection of sensitive data. A secure log management solution can help meet compliance requirements.


The syslog-ng Store Box provides secure, tamper-proof storage and custom reporting to demonstrate compliance.


Big Data Ingestion

Many big data projects run into the 80/20 rule. 80% of resources is spent getting data into their analytic tools and only 20% on analyzing the data.


syslog-ng can deliver data from a wide variety of sources to Hadoop, Elasticsearch, MongoDB, and Kafka as well as many others.


Universal Log Collection and Routing

Organizations using multiple analytic tools and storage solutions often use multiple log management tools.


syslog-ng flexibly routes log data from X sources to Y destinations. Instead of deploying multiple agents on hosts, organizations can unify their log data collection and management.


Secure Log Data Archive

Securely manage and archive your log data. Log data often contains senstive information. Personally Identifiable Information (PII), user activity, transactions, and more.


The syslog-ng Store Box provides automated archiving, tamper-proof encrypted storage, granular access controls to protect log data. The largest appliance can store up to 10TB of raw logs.
