Log files are pulled to a number of 'collectors' deployed across the enterprise which collate security, system, network, application and database logs in near-real time (c. 300 per second). Log files are sent to the Raytheon Security Operating Centre (SOC) analyst, who analyses the logs for anomalies and / or potential breaches. In the event suspicious activities are detected, the SOC analyst initiates and incident response commensurate with the nature of the event.
