Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is the industry-specific term in computer security referring to the collection of data (typically log files; e.g. event-logs) into a central repository for trend analysis. SIEM products generally comprise software agents running on the computers that are to be monitored, communicating with a centralized server acting as a "Security console", sending it information about security-related events, which displays reports, charts and graphs of that information, often in real time.
