Log monitoring & management is a way of collecting logs from systems such as servers, firewalls and applications. It can also be used to monitor logs from applications such as office 365 & antivirus.
Log management allows you to centralise these logs and look through them for anything that may be slightly suspicious. You would normally bundle log management with Threat Detection as they both work hand in hand.
