LogPoint as a SIEM tool
A security information and event management (SIEM) solution is a central tool in the risk management toolkit. A great SIEM tool allows businesses to improve threat detection and response by providing real-time data analysis, early detection of data breaches, data collection, data storage and accurate data reporting.
Your data and the ability to visualize it are inherently valuable. But that value increases dramatically when you can put that data into context. When you enrich your data with information about users, assets, threats and vulnerabilities, your data becomes actionable.
Our next-gen SIEM solution aggregates event data produced by any device or application within your infrastructure, giving you the insight necessary to make critical decisions. LogPoint does much more than traditional SIEM tools.
LogPoint can assist with your SIEM needs regardless of the size of your business. Some of our largest deployments churn sustained event rates of more than 1,000,000 EPS from more than 25,000 event sources.

Speaking the same language
LogPoint’s SIEM tool normalizes data into a single language to describe the contents of the logs.
With our next-gen SIEM solution, data from diverse sources can be easily correlated and analyzed, enabling insights into user activity monitoring, compliance reporting, threat hunting and more.
Critical capabilities of LogPoint
According to Gartner, there are three main areas where a next-gen SIEM solution should excel – advanced threat detection, security monitoring, investigation, and incident response. LogPoint delivers world-class results in each of those areas.
Advanced threat detection
With LogPoint’s SIEM tool, advanced threat detection is executed in real time and over long periods of time, allowing analysis and reporting of trends and behaviors of entities and users within the organization. Our advanced analytics are also used to monitor data access, application activity and act as a control for detecting advanced persistent threats (APT).
LogPoint’s threat detection capabilities include enrichment with internal or external contextual information, such as threat intelligence, user names or temporal knowledge. This enables security analysts to operate faster and more efficiently. You’ll also have access to effective ad-hoc queries, machine learning and UEBA capabilities. The end result: more effective and efficient threat hunting.
LogPoint is an effective log management tool, allowing for basic security monitoring and is often used for compliance reporting and real-time monitoring of security controls. LogPoint meets basic threat detection, compliance auditing and reporting requirements. With flexible, convenient collection and storage of logs, LogPoint can accommodate your auditor’s needs – making compliance much easier.
Popular use cases among our customers for basic security monitoring covers a broad range of security sources, including:
- Perimeter and network devices
- Endpoint agents
- Critical applications
- Other infrastructure components
Investigation and incident response
Visualization is very important for making sense of your data. LogPoint can give you the clarity you need. We’re constantly implementing new ways of visualizing your data and strive to provide visualization that makes it easy to interpret and respond to what your data is telling you. This is true for all of our controls, including:
- Ad-hoc queries
Incident response and management is centrally embedded within LogPoint, making it convenient to manage incidents within your team and enabling effective forensic investigations. You’ll now have the addition of business context, security intelligence, user monitoring, data monitoring and application monitoring – all within a single interface.
