EventLog Analyzer architecture

Standalone edition

EventLog Analyzer is a log management and IT compliance solution for your enterprise. It's web-based, and it employs both agentless and agent-based mechanisms to collect logs from log sources across your network while also providing you with in-depth reports, alerts, and security analyses.

The main modules EventLog Analyzer has to offer:

  • Parsing engine: Filters logs which aren't needed—as configured by the administrator—and normalizes raw logs into a standard format.
  • Central database: Stores raw and normalized logs from all devices and applications across your network as well as report data and global threat data. The default database that comes installed with the product is PostgreSQL. Alternatively, users have the option of migrating to Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL databases.
  • Report builder: Processes the raw and normalized logs to build over a thousand predefined reports—including compliance reports—and custom reports as well. EventLog Analyzer generates and sends out scheduled reports, and it exports reports when needed.
  • Alerts and incident management: Sends out email and SMS notifications based on configured alert profiles; assigns incidents to designated technicians, and stores the statuses and related information for every incident.
  • Log search engine: Searches through millions of logs in seconds. The search engine is based on Elasticsearch.
  • File integrity monitoring: Uses file server logs to monitor all activity occurring in critical files and folders and generates detailed file integrity reports.
  • Correlation engine: Correlates logs from heterogeneous sources to identify potential attacks, and generates in-depth aggregated incident reports and security alerts.
  • Threat intelligence: Regularly retrieves and stores threat data from popular STIX/TAXII-based threat feeds as well as other open source feeds. The module compares this data with network events and then generates threat alerts when malicious entities are discovered interacting with your network.

EventLog Analyzer Architecture

Distributed edition

EventLog Analyzer's distributed edition is useful when your network consists of over a thousand log sources, or if it's spread across multiple geographic regions. It's also the perfect model for managed security service providers (MSSPs) to deploy. It follows a distributed architecture with multiple managed servers being controlled by a single, central admin server.

  • Admin server: A central server that provides the administrator with control over the entire network.
  • Managed server: Each managed server oversees a smaller portion of the network, and it works exactly like the standalone edition described above.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I love the alerts feature of the product. We are able to send immediate alerts based on pretty much anything we can think of. We send alerts when certain accounts login, or when groups are changed, etc. That has been very helpful. Also the automatic archive of the log files has been very helpful and has taken the worry out of keeping old logs. The “Ask Me” function is very nice as well. It is great to have some natural language queries built in where you can just click a button and get an answer.

  • Windows Event logs and device Syslogs are a real time synopsis of what is happening on a computer or network. EventLog Analyzer is an economical, functional and easy-to-utilize tool that allows me to know what is going on in the network by pushing alerts and reports, both in real time and scheduled. It is a premium software Intrusion Detection System application.
