Chad Kliewer
Information Security Officer at a comms service provider with 501-1,000 employees

Most importantly, I don’t need a team of people dedicated to log collecting and sifting. View full review »

I use it to track events on our infrastructure to help with secure access and detection. We have many firewalls and antivirus DHCP (The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) DNS (Domain Name System), logs of Office 365, et cetera.
