Track VPN access to your network
In today's increasingly dynamic workplace, users often connect to your company's network remotely using a VPN. If you're using Cisco ASA to host a VPN, EventLog Analyzer helps you track all the accesses to it. The predefined reports display all successful and failed VPN logon attempts, as well as users locked out due to multiple failed VPN logon attempts. EventLog Analyzer also categorizes the information by the user and remote device used, to provide you with a trend report.
VPN reports you need to keep track of
VPN Logons | Failed VPN Logons | VPN Lockouts | VPN Unlocks | Top Logon based on users | Top logons based on Remote devices | Top Failed VPN Logons based on User | Top Failed VPN Logons based on Remote Device | Top VPN Lockouts based on User | VPN logon trend reports | Failed VPN Logons Trend
Monitor privileged user activity
It is important to monitor administrator activity on security devices like the Cisco ASA, as these devices enforce policies and keep your network secure. A breached account or a malicious administrator could spell disaster for your organization.
EventLog Analyzer provides reports to track all Cisco ASA logons. These are classified by user, remote device, and port. You can also raise alerts for critical activities in Cisco ASA like, changes to user accounts and group policies.
Reports to track privileged accounts
Logons | Failed Logons | Top Successful logons based on user | Top logons based on remote devices | Top logons based on ports | Top failed logons based on users | Top failed logons based on remote devices | Top failed logons based on ports | Logon Trend | Failed logon trend | Added users | Deleted users | Added Group policies | Deleted group policies | Changed user privilege levels | Executed commands
Cisco ASA traffic analysis
Monitoring and analyzing your Cisco ASA traffic is useful in understanding your network activities. Cisco ASA firewall logs help you gauge the performance of your existing policies and make changes if necessary.
