Intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are among the most sophisticated network security devices in use today. They inspect network packets and block suspicious ones, as well as alert administrators about attack attempts. These systems' logs contain valuable network threat information about attack types, devices being targeted, and more.
With ManageEngine EventLog Analyzer, you can monitor IDS and IPS logs and extract the information they provide to secure your network further. It makes network device monitoring simple by automatically collecting IDS/IPS logs and storing them in a central location. Predefined reports cover various aspects of your network and help you gain perspective on your network's overall security standing. Instant alerts ensure you're the first to know when something suspicious is detected. For instance, malicious traffic alerts let you know when intruders try to access your network. EventLog Analyzer also allows you to search the collected logs using several powerful search options and securely stores logs for as long as you need them.
Supported IDS/IPS vendors
EventLog Analyzer provides out-of-the-box support for multiple IDS/IPS vendors:
Network security monitoring with EventLog Analyzer's IDS/IPS reports
EventLog Analyzer generates IDS/IPS security reports that provide information on:
Attacks occurring on your network, with information on the most frequent attacks and the source of these attacks.
The most targeted devices on your network.
These reports help you understand what types of attacks your network is susceptible to, which network devices need to be secured further, how to decide which malicious traffic sources to target, and more.
Attacks classified based on source/destination addresses
Prevent network intrusions by analyzing attacks occurring on your network classified on the basis of source and destination addresses.
Frequently targeted devices on your network
Monitor and protect devices on your network that were targeted by attackers on a regular basis.
Attacks classified on the basis of severity
Analyze attacks in your IDS/IPS devices by categorizing them on the basis of their status: Emergency, Alert, Critical, Error, Warning, Notice, Information, or Debug.
The Attacks Trend report gives you a timeline of various attacks that occurred over a given period of time.
View important security information obtained from your logs in the form of graphical reports. EventLog Analyzer comes with 1,000+ pre-defined reports that are generated automatically upon log collection.
Identify suspicious activity in your organization network by correlating logs from multiple devices. Utilize 30+ pre-defined correlation rules or create rules as per your requirements using EventLog Analyzer's correlation rule builder.
Limit the time taken to detect and respond to security incidents with EventLog Analyzer's incident detection and response system. Handle security incidents quickly by automatically assigning tickets to appropriate security administrators.
Intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are network components that monitor traffic in your organization network to detect and prevent malicious activities and policy violations.
What is the difference between an IDS and an IPS?
Intrusion detection systems (IDS) are considered to be monitoring systems. They are responsible for monitoring and analyzing the network traffic for malicious threats. When any suspicious activity is detected, they trigger an alert to notify the security team so that the threat can be mitigated immediately. Intrusion detection systems can be deployed in two different ways: host-based intrusion detection systems and network-based intrusion detection systems.
Intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are proactive in nature and are often referred to as control systems. They monitor network traffic and when any abnormal activity is detected, they alert the security administrators and remediate the threat through automated actions such as blocking that particular malicious source or modifying the firewall to stop similar attacks in the future.

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.
