Anyone worried about security and/or compliance has probably heard about Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and Log Management. But do you really understand what the technology can do for your organization, how the products are architected, and what is important when trying to pick a solution for your organization?

Unfortunately far too many end user organizations have learned what’s important in SIEM/LM the hard way – by screwing it up. But you can learn from the pain of others, because we have written a fairly comprehensive paper that delves into the use cases for the technology, the technology itself, how to deploy it, and ultimately how to select it. We assembled this paper from the Understand and Selecting a SIEM/Log Management blog series from June and July 2010.

Special thanks to Nitro Security for sponsoring the research.
