Why use Nava SIEM Agent?

Pin It

There are many reasons why cloud audit logging is a priority for companies. Below we offer some of the most common use cases for Nava SIEM Agent:

Longer-term retention

A growing number of cloud service providers are providing APIs and facilities for audit logging. However, cloud audit logs are only available for a limited period of time. For instance, currently Google Apps retains logs on their servers for 180 days. If you have a requirement to retain logs for a longer period then you should explore external options such as Nava SIEM Agent.

Compliance with regulations or company log management policies

Are you aware of compliance requirements for your company? Almost all major security standards and regulations cover log management. Whether it is PCI DSS, HIPAA, ISO 27001, FFIEC, or your own security policies, storing logs in a separate location for backup purposes is a necessity.

Conduct forensics/investigations in one place

By aggregating your logs in one location, not only are you able to comply with regulations but you can conduct forensics and investigations in one location. Many tools that support cloud logs require you to use only their tool for analysis. Nava SIEM Agent liberates your logs, to be viewed from a centralized console of your choice.

IP reputation analysis for cloud access

For SIEM solutions that support IP reputation analysis, you can easily process your cloud logs in order to detect access from IP addresses of ill repute.

Advanced correlation with multiple events

With many SIEM products, you are able to perform advanced correlation and configure for security alerting based on multiple events. For instance, consider a hacking attempt against your premise servers from a specific IP address followed by a modification of a Google Document from that same IP address.
