Sentinel Log Manager Review
Nearly 90 percent of organizations are collecting log data, according to the 2009 SANS Log Management Survey. They are using log data for a number of reasons, primarily to respond to events and achieve compliance, and they are beginning to use their data to achieve operational efficiencies. In addition, they want to use their logs for many other purposes that have value to business departments.
This paper is a review of the stand-alone Sentinel Log Manager and how it stands up to keyconcerns that survey respondents raised about log managers, including collection, storage andsearching/reporting capabilities.
