Log Management

Syslog & Windows Event Log

Why log management?

Log Management - Pre-requisite to Ensure Network Security

Logs give you first hand information about your network activities. Log management ensures that the network activity data hidden in the logs is converted to meaningful, actionable security information. Log management is a pre-requisite for Network, Security administrator to keep the network secured.

Log management comprises of log collection, secured storage, normalization, analysis, reports and alerts generation.

Log Collection

  • Log collection needs to be unintrusive.
  • Logs need to be collected from diverse set of devices, servers and applications available in the network.
  • Log collection should be preferably without an agent. In some network environments, log collection using agent should be available optional.

Secured Storage

  • The log data needs to be stored in archive for forensic analysis and regulatory compliance requirements.
  • The log data storage should secured (e.g., encryption)
  • Also, the storage should be tamper proof
  • The retention duration should be flexible (preferably user configurable)
  • The storage location, media also should be flexible (read only media, mass storage system, etc.)

Log Normalization

The logs from heterogeneous sources should be normalized to have a common format. This is required to analyze and correlate.

Log Analysis

The logs need to be analyzed to get a full picture of the network security events

Report and Alert Generation

The logs are analyzed to generate reports and alerts

  • There should be canned, customizable, custom, and scheduled reports in different formats and distributable.
  • The alerts should be notified in real-time. There should be more notification mechanisms and even other program should be executed to carry out remedial measures

Log management is an integral part of monitoring network security

  • 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.
