Splunk review

If there's gold in log files, Splunk will help you to find it. Splunk bridges the gap between simple log management and security information and event management products from vendors such as ArcSight, RSA, Q1 Labs and Symantec.

Parrot AR.Drone review

The AR.Drone from France-based Parrot is an exciting, fun-to-fly, four-rotor helicopter that can be piloted over Wi-Fi by an iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone. But flying indoors proves tricky and may frustrate inexperienced pilots.

GFI EventsManager review

I've used many GFI products over the last 10 years, and in that time, I've found most of them to be user-friendly and a good value, though they tend to be aimed at small and midsize Microsoft Windows shops. GFI EventsManager follows that tradition while also supporting Linux and Unix clients.

ArcSight Logger review

ArcSight has been a pioneer in the security event management business since 2000, and the company's leadership shows in the richness, flexibility, and maturity of its offering. The product lineup is led by the ArcSight Enterprise Security Manager and Logger event log management appliances, although the company has smaller appliances and companion modules for identity-based and compliance monitoring.

LogLogic MX3020 review

I found the LogLogic MX appliance to be among the easiest-to-use management products, and it has all the functionality most administrators would need for basic log management. The GUI is simple and uncluttered. I didn't find myself looking to help manuals nearly as much as I did in other products.

Trustwave SIEM review

Trustwave's main competitive advantage is combining SIEM (security information and event management) and log management in one, relatively cheap appliance. While many vendors have begun bringing SIEM and log management functionality together, few do it as affordably as Trustwave, though you'll generally need to look beyond the starting prices to see it.

Splunk 4 review

It's fair to say that I learned a lot about log management through Splunk. A few years ago, I used Splunk for a variety of computer security applications, most notably to collect and forward events across a wide range of machines. Picking it up again two years later, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Splunk has become feature-rich and very handy beyond its early origins.

LogRhythm LR2000-XM review

Another solution that combines log management and event management functionality, LogRhythm's XM appliance is long on features and flexibility. It combines a wealth of data views, easy pivot tables, viewing and filtering of real-time data, and the ability to enhance both discovery and analysis with strong Active Directory integration.

NitroSecurity NitroView ESM and ELM review

Unlike the other products in this review that combine log management and event management functionality, NitroSecurity wraps the two feature sets in two separate appliances. Because NitroSecurity's NitroView Enterprise Log Manager (ELM) data is viewable only through a linked NitroView Enterprise Security Manager (ESM), my review of its log management functionality required testing both appliances.
