Abstract: A significant number of high profile cases of malicious software threats and incidents that have dominated media reporting for years have served to raise awareness and determine most businesses to invest time and resources into defending against this prevalent security issue. Security monitoring has gained support being regarded as an essential component for managing and improving the security of network infrastructures. The primary goal of a security monitoring system is to help identify suspicious events on a network that may indicate malicious activity or procedural errors. This paper presents the major security monitoring types in current enterprise networked environments.

Keywords: information security, security vulnerability, security monitoring.
