Network Device Monitoring

Perimeter network devices like firewalls, routers, switches, and more are critical components as they control the traffic in and out of the corporate network. Therefore monitoring the activities of these devices helps IT admins to troubleshoot operational issues and also secure the network from attackers. Monitoring these devices by collecting and analyzing their logs is the primary step to fix operational issues, spot and mitigate intrusions, and conduct thorough forensic analysis in case of a breach.

EventLog Analyzer, a comprehensive network device log monitoring software collects, analyzes, correlates, searches, and securely store logs from all network devices.

EventLog Analyzer as a network device log monitoring software

Log collection

EventLog Analyzer is a network log monitoring software with built-in capabilities, that helps you collect and analyze log data from different types of network devices such as routers, switches, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and firewalls.

This device supports agent based and agentless log collection option. Additionally, the tool also comes with automatic device detection capability that allows you to scan and discover network devices in the network and add them for log monitoring.

You can also define regex patterns for custom logs using the Custom Log Parser.

Log analysis

EventLog Analyzer analyzes network devices' logs and presents actionable insights in the form of real-time dashboard and reports.

With its analytical dashboards and reports EventLog Analyzer can help you with:

  • Firewall monitoring: Get insights into firewall logon activities, policy modifications, and rule modifications. Out-of-the-box log analysis support for Cisco, SonicWall, PaloAlto, Juniper firewalls, and more. Check the complete list of supported firewall devices here.
  • Router monitoring: Get to know details such as who logged on to router at what time and from where, the configuration changes, allowed and denied connections, errors and more.
  • IDS/IPS monitoring: Get visibility into security threats, sort them out based on users and source to spot malicious users and infected machines. Know more on blocked, detected, and allowed exploits.

Apart from these built-in security analytics widget, EventLog Analyzer allows you to create custom reports and dashboards to meet your internal security requirements. You can customize the analytical capability of EventLog Analyzer to provide you specific reports of interest. You can select the required devices and device groups in your network for which you want to generate the reports along with the report groups that need to be generated. These custom reports will help you meet internal audits in your organization and to track critical events of interest more granularly.

Real-time event monitoring system

EventLog Analyzer alerts IT admins upon anomalous events occurring in the network perimeter. Any suspicious activity such as communication from malicious IP, a rogue user trying to scan ports and more can be notified in real-time over email and SMS. The solution comes with over 200 predefined alert profiles that identifies network device anomalies. Further, the users can also build custom alert profiles. Workflow rules can also be associated with these profiles to automatically mitigate the threat condition.

Visualizing network logs

EventLog Analyzer generates intuitive dashboards to help you visualize collected network log data. The graphical reports make it easy to detect anomalies and malicious network events. The tool raises alerts for suspicious network events and notifies you when a threat is detected.

Responding to network threats

You can enable incident response workflows to combat internal and external threats. EventLog Analyzer performs actions such as blocking traffic from a source by changing inbound and outbound firewall policies when specific alerts are raised. You can also create custom response workflows to execute a required action in your network.

Tracking network incidents

EventLog Analyzer is capable of creating an incident for network incidents to help you identify and quarantine breached network devices. You can assign an IT security professional to look into the incident and track the status of the attack from the Incident Management console of EventLog Analyzer.

Customer Speaks

  • Credit Union of Denver has been using EventLog Analyzer for more than four years for our internal user activity monitoring. EventLog Analyzer provides great value as a network forensic tool and for regulatory due diligence. This product can rapidly be scaled to meet our dynamic business needs.
    Benjamin Shumaker
    Vice President of IT / ISO
    Credit Union of Denver
  • 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.
    Joseph Graziano, MCSE CCA VCP
    Senior Network Engineer
  • EventLog Analyzer has been a good event log reporting and alerting solution for our information technology needs. It minimizes the amount of time we spent on filtering through event logs and provides almost near real-time notification of administratively defined alerts.
