Difficulty accessing logs
With logs residing in different locations or on different systems, getting to the bottom of an incident becomes more difficult and takes more time.
Piecing together what happened without all the information makes investigations more time-consuming and reduces confidence in the investigations conclusions.
Overwhelming amount of data
The sheer amount of log data to sift through in a forensic investigation can delay detection and resolution. Searching on extremely large amounts of data can take hours when you want the answer in seconds.
Many companies struggle to make sense of log data that has varying formats and structures, sometimes for the same type of event.
