Windows Firewall monitoring

Windows Firewall protects your hosts from network attacks, making it an important component of your network security system. Firewalls have the power to grant or deny the flow of traffic, ensuring only trusted parties are accessing your resources. The correct configuration of Windows Firewall settings is of concern for any security administrator, as changes can potentially result in security loopholes, making systems vulnerable to attacks. So, it is important for security administrators to audit their Windows Firewall event log data.

Using a Windows Firewall log analyzer, such as EventLog Analyzer, empowers you to monitor Windows Firewall activity with its comprehensive, predefined graphical reports, as well as analyze this information to gain useful insights. Auditing changes made to firewall configurations allows you to gain full control. In addition, with the real-time security alerts via SMS or email, any attack on the network can be quickly identified and mitigated.

Windows Firewall log auditing

Use EventLog Analyzer to conduct Windows Firewall audits. Track changes made to settings and configurations, including configuration resets and group policy changes. Keep an eye on all firewall rule changes, including rules that are added, deleted, or modified. A firewall rule change, be it by mistake or with malicious intent, might grant resource access to someone who isn't supposed to have access, which can put your systems at risk.

Keep track of all these changes with the solution's Windows Firewall log reports to ensure that it is set up properly at all times. 

Identify Windows Firewall attacks

In addition to Windows Firewall reporting, EventLog Analyzer offers predefined threat alerts as well. The solution constantly scans log messages for threats, generating SMS and email alerts as soon as attacks occur. Real-time alerts help you quickly combat flood attacks, spoof attacks, SYN attacks, Ping of Death attacks, and half scan attacks. You can also go one step further and automatically run programs when alerts are triggered to quickly mitigate security threats on your network. EventLog Analyzer's real-time alerts for Windows Firewall help protect your network from attacks.

  • The best thing, I like about the application, is the well structured GUI and the automated reports. This is a great help for network engineers to monitor all the devices in a single dashboard. The canned reports are a clever piece of work.
