Network Security Monitoring Software

Network Security Monitoring Software

Network security monitoring software, also known as network security monitoring (NSM) tools, are designed to monitor and analyze network traffic to detect and respond to security threats and anomalies. These tools provide visibility into network activities, help identify malicious behavior, and enable timely incident response

Network security monitoring software designed to deploy quickly to help detect cyber threats and simplify demonstrating compliance

Key Features

  • Centralized log collection and normalization
  • Automated threat detection and response
  • Integrated compliance reporting tools
  • Intuitive dashboard and user interface
  • Built-in file integrity monitoring
  • Simple and affordable licensing

More easily detect threats across your environment

Centralizing and normalizing log data from your on-premises devices can give you a more comprehensive view of suspicious behavior and help reduce the amount of time and effort spent analyzing and responding to cyber threats. LogicVein Security Event Manager (SEM) is designed to be an extra pair of eyes on your network to alert you and help you act on potential threats in your environment.

Why does it take so long to find the log data I need?

Security Event Manager comes with hundreds of pre-built connectors to gather logs from various sources, parse their data, and put them into a commonly readable format, creating a central location for you and your team to easily investigate potential threats, prepare for audits, and store logs.

Security Event Manager includes features to quickly and easily narrow in on the logs you need, such as visualizations, out-of-the-box filters, and simple, responsive text-based searching for both live and historical events. With scheduled search, you can save, load, and schedule your most commonly used searches.

What is network security monitoring software?

Network security monitoring software is built to detect and analyze activities potentially indicating security issues. By offering cybersecurity warnings, network cybersecurity monitoring solutions can enable you to act quickly and protect your business from network intrusion and subsequent disaster.

To discover cybersecurity threats, network security monitoring software is designed to collect metrics around client-server communications, encrypted traffic sessions, and other network operations. It also enables you to perform traffic analysis to find patterns in traffic flow. Additionally, you can create automatic security alerts and reports, allowing you to respond to suspicious behavior and take appropriate actions more quickly.

Visualizations offered by network security monitoring tools can also leverage threat intelligence to generate easy-to-understand charts and graphs, potentially improving admin efforts to investigate network traffic, pinpoint malicious activities, and troubleshoot security threats.

How does the network monitoring software work in SolarWinds Security Event Manager?

LogicVein Security Event Manager (SEM) offers network monitoring with automated features designed to actively flag events found through real-time log correlation. SEM enables you to uncover actionable intelligence on your network cybersecurity, compliance, and daily operations. You can use these critical insights to respond to security threats quickly and efficiently.  With visualization features like trees, graphs, and charts, SEM is designed to instantly highlight important network security data and related issues. This supplies you with the necessary context to make speedy yet informed decisions regarding security operations.

SEM is a network security monitoring tool designed to scan your network using a list of known bad actors based on community-sourced threat intelligence feeds to help you discover the following:

  • Internal communications with a potentially malicious host, indicating an already-present security threat
  • Attacks, probes, or other communications potentially indicating an incoming network intrusion
  • Spam, denial of service, or similar hosts that could be security threats, signaling phishing attempts, or zombies
  • System errors and crash reports, which could potentially yield openings for security threats
  • Failure of antivirus or anti-malware technology to clean up potential security infections
  • Intrusion detection through other security triggers

Along with uncovering potential cybersecurity attacks, SEM can help you start addressing these threats faster. SEM is built to let you enable or disable accounts, detach ransomware USB drives, and shut down entire machines to prevent malicious attackers from wreaking havoc on your network. SEM can also enable alerts and take set actions based on triggers at any time of the day. This allows you to stay focused while still addressing critical issues the moment they arise.

SEM is designed to centralize security data from across your IT environment. This comprehensive view of suspicious and malicious behavior can enable you to understand real-time network security activity so you can appropriately respond to cybersecurity threats without delay.
