Windows firewall audit tool
Windows firewalls protect your hosts from network attacks, making them an important component of your network security system. Firewalls have the power to grant or deny the flow of traffic, ensuring only trusted parties are accessing your resources. The correct configuration of Windows firewall settings is of concern for any security administrator, as changes can potentially result in security loopholes, making systems vulnerable to attacks. So, it is important for security administrators to audit their Window firewall log data.
EventLog Analyzer empowers you to audit your Windows firewall logs with its comprehensive, predefined graphical reports and real-time alerts. This gives you full control over your Windows firewall, so you can audit changes made to firewall configurations and also identify and mitigate attacks.
Comprehensively audit Windows firewall logs
Use EventLog Analyzer to track changes made to Windows firewall settings and configurations, including configuration resets and group policy changes. Keep an eye on all firewall rule changes, including rules that are added, deleted, or modified. A firewall rule change, be it by mistake or with malicious intent, might grant resource access to someone who isn't supposed to have access, which can put your systems at risk.
Keep track of all these changes to ensure that your Windows firewall is set up properly at all times.
Identify Windows firewall attacks
In addition to auditing Windows firewall settings and rule changes, EventLog Analyzer offers predefined Windows firewall threat alerts as well. EventLog Analyzer constantly scans log messages for threats, generating SMS and email alerts as soon as attacks occur. Real-time alerts help you quickly combat flood attacks, spoof attacks, SYN attacks, Ping of Death attacks, and half scan attacks. You can also go one step further and automatically run programs when alerts are triggered to quickly mitigate security threats on your network. EventLog Analyzer's real-time alerts for Windows firewall help protect your network from attacks.
