SEM installation overview
This section describes how Security Event Manager (formerly Log & event Manager), works and provides examples of components used in various deployment environments.
SolarWinds advises that, as a best practice, the SEM appliance should not be set up to be available to the Internet or any public-facing network. In addition, using this practice will help prevent access by unauthorized users. For further information on SEM security, see the SEM security checklists.
