Network security monitoring with IDS/IPS reports
Importance of IDS/IPS monitoring
Intrusion detection systems (IDSs) and intrusion prevention systems (IPSs) 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. You should monitor these logs and extract the information they provide to further secure your network.
EventLog Analyzer provides out-of-the-box support for multiple IDS/IPS vendors:
- Palo Alto Networks
- Check Point
EventLog Analyzer makes network device monitoring simple. Once configured, EventLog Analyzer automatically collects IDS/IPS logs from these devices and stores 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.
IDS/IPS reporting with EventLog Analyzer
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.
- Attack trends.
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.
