Another Fun Observation on Log Management

"... Basically you better look like a log management vendor or you need to get into the remediation business... Given the continued focus around compliance there is a lot of running room for the log management business. For the time being, the auditors have money. The compliance budget is not long lived, but for now take the money and run."

The main insight is: if you think you are in the "protection business", you'd better protect and not just report/alert/scream/bitch/harass (or people would laugh at you!) What if your technology provides a superior capabilities to do just the above? Relax, you should be in the "audit business", there is nothin' wrong with that!
