A Firewall is an important perimeter defense tool which protects your
network from attacks. Security tools like Firewalls, VPN's, and Proxy
Servers generate a huge quantity of traffic logs, which can be mined to
generate a wealth of security information reports.
What is Firewall Analyzer?
ManageEngine Firewall Analyzer
is a browser-based firewall/VPN/proxy server reporting solution that uses
a built-in syslog server to store, analyze, and report on these logs.
Firewall Analyzer provides daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly reports
on firewall traffic, security breaches, and more. This helps network administrators
to proactively secure networks before security threats arise, avoid network
abuses, manage bandwidth requirements, monitor web site visits, and ensure
appropriate usage of networks by employees.
Analyzer analyzes your firewall and proxy server logs and answers questions
like the following:
- Who are the top Web surfers in the company, and what
web sites are they visiting?
- How many users inside the firewall are trying to
access web sites with inappropriate content?
- How much network activity originates on each side
of the firewall?
- Are we experiencing hack attempts? Where are they
- Which servers receive the most hits?
