Network Device Monitoring

Network Device Monitoring

A typical network infrastructure consists of various unique elements in addition to servers and clients. Monitoring all these network devices is necessary because it provides a complete picture of your network. For instance, if a fault in a firewall allows illegal access to the network, you will be able to conduct a thorough forensic investigation only if the firewall audit information is available, The primary step in monitoring network performance and security is collecting and analyzing network device logs. You can accomplish this easily by using EventLog Analyzer.

Monitoring Network Devices with EventLog Analyzer

  • EventLog Analyzer is a network device monitoring tool that helps you manage network logs.
  • The tool has built-in support for different types of network devices such as routers, switches, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and firewalls.
  • You can even define custom logs for unrecognized devices by using the universal log parsing and indexing (ULPI) feature.
  • The predefined reports cover your extensive reporting needs. They are presented as easy-to-understand tables, graphs, and lists, and can be customized.
  • Custom reports can also be defined and scheduled as needed.
  • Real-time alerts notify you of significant events in your network.

Routers and Switches

  • Routers and switches direct traffic through your network. These devices must function well to ensure continued communication throughout the network.
  • It's important to monitor access to these devices in your network and check that they are configured correctly and that traffic passes through them.
  • Monitoring router and switch logs can help you prevent potential attacks, securing your network.
  • EventLog Analyzer supports all routers and switches from Cisco, as well as several other popular vendors.

Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems

  • Intrusion detection systems (IDS) are designed to recognize suspicious activity and traffic entering a network. They respond to such situations by alerting the administrator or logging the event.
  • Intrusion prevention systems (IPS) also detect unwanted data packets attempting to enter the network and respond by dropping the packet and logging the event.
  • Auditing the logs generated by these network devices is crucial, as it allows you to visualize the security and health of your network and strengthen security accordingly.

Firewalls

  • Firewalls, similar to IPSs, control traffic to the network by blocking suspicious or unwanted data from entering or exiting the network. They examine packet headers for conformance with their set of rules, while IPSs inspect entire packets.
  • Analyzing firewall logs provides crucial information on the transactions between your organization's network and all external networks.
  • You can also monitor changes in firewall user accounts, logons, and the rule set governing firewall actions.
  • Firewall auditing is essential for preempting potential security attacks.
 
Customer Speaks
  • Credit Union of Denver has been using EventLog Analyzer for more than four years for our internal user activity monitoring. EventLog Analyzer provides great value as a network forensic tool and for regulatory due diligence. This product can rapidly be scaled to meet our dynamic business needs.

  • 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.
