SIM (Security Information Management)

What is Security Information Management?


Security Information Management is the strategical practice of collecting security logs from applications and devices, such as firewalls, anti-virus, and IDS (Intrusion Detection System) and storing them in a centralized repository. Then, the collected data is normalized and analyzed to generate security reports.

In many cases, a security information management system (SIMS) can aid in automating this procedure to ease the manual effort and enhance the efficiency of both the SIM program and the institution’s broader cybersecurity program.

In the world of NXLog

As the SIM process collects security-related information, it heavily relies on logs collected by log collection software like NXLog. NXLog can support the SIM process by providing log data in a secure timely manner.
