Router log analysis
Routers are the building blocks of any computer network, directing the flow of traffic in your network. You need to ensure your routers are configured and working correctly in order to keep your network secure.
Syslog data from your routers contains valuable information, giving you a clear picture of activity in your network. Router syslog auditing has several applications, such as monitoring internet activity of your employees, aiding forensic investigations, and router attack detection. But monitoring router activity can be challenging because of the massive amounts of network traffic that passes through them on a daily basis. Most events occur every day, so it can be hard to identify anomalous events that actually threaten your network security. EventLog Analyzer makes router log monitoring and analysis simple, quick and convenient.
