  • Knowing who is making changes to our active directory environment and when they are doing it has been helpful, but it is weird that sometimes I wake up in the morning that one of the guys made a change to someone's account at 2:00 a.m. We have to investigate those oddball ones to see if they are legit.
  • It is very helpful to know who is logging into, updating, changing VLANs, changing passwords on our network switches
  • Our insurance company really likes that we are using SEM to log events on our servers and switches. If I am not mistaken, it is a requirement now.

  • Helps to active the audit and compliance by proper log management for the complete retention period.
  • The Solarwinds SEM helps various IT departments such as server and network to work together using normalized common events. This increases operational efficiency and helps to find the hole in the infra.
  • for cognitive SIEM perspective, it doesn't helps to find the flaw in the network and impress management.

  • This is a little outside of my level of involvement to answer adeptly. That being said I do know that it has been instrumental in allowing our organization to implement a central storage for log files and it's something we have wanted to implement for a long time.
