Event logs equip IT and business managers with valuable activity data, such as who is accessing what information and what they are doing with it. Are unauthorized employees accessing information they shouldn’t be? Are authorized employees abusing their access privileges by accessing systems during off-shift hours or sending data to individuals outside of their department? Using a log management solution, SMBs can identify activity that is not in compliance with corporate access policies and use that intelligence to remediate problem areas enabling the business to protect sensitive information from insider threats.

In today’s economy, small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are constantly looking for ways to save money, yield maximum potential from deployed technologies and, ultimately, “do more with less.” One way they can accomplish these goals is by taking advantage of a log management solution.

At their core, log management solutions enable companies to monitor and analyze all kinds of activity happening on their networks. But what does this activity mean? And how can it be used to secure corporate networks, protect sensitive information, increase compliance and deliver business value? GFI Software, a leading provider of IT and security solutions targeted at SMBs, has compiled a list of five unique ways SMBs can use their log management solution and the activity intelligence it provides to get the most out of their technology investments.
