The Standard and Enterprise editions of SharePoint allow the users to access SharePoint event logs. In the Standard and Enterprise editions, you will be given the permission for auditing of View Events. Site collection administrators can view audit log reports to determine who is taking what action with the content by using a
SharePoint log viewer.
Besides, the Standard or Enterprise editions of SharePoint also allow you to install apps from the Internal Catalog or the public SharePoint Store. Similarly, cloud-hosted and SharePoint-hosted apps can be installed on the Standard or Enterprise editions. These are not possible with the Foundation edition of SharePoint.
Apart from giving access to SharePoint logs, the Standard or Enterprise editions feature Project Site Templates, Design Manager, Asset Library Enhancements/Video Support. An Asset Library is pre-configured to use special features that help users manage rich media assets such as image, audio, and video files.
