A typical network infrastructure consists of various unique elements in addition to servers and clients, and it is important to monitor them. Monitoring 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 activity and security is collecting and analyzing network device logs. You can accomplish this easily by using a network security audit tool like EventLog Analyzer.
EventLog Analyzer as a Network Device Monitoring Software
EventLog Analyzer is a network log monitoring software, with 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 custom log parsing 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. These include correlation alerts which notify you of attack patterns detected across multiple devices.
Routers and Switches
Routers and switches direct traffic through your network. These devices must function well to ensure continued communication throughout the network.
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.
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.
