Firewalls play a crucial role in network security. The complex network architecture of modern enterprises with multiple firewalls like a circuit-level firewall, an application-level firewall, and an advanced next-generation firewall (NGFW) requires an automated firewall management and centralized firewall monitoring tool to ensure security at the perimeter level. ManageEngine EventLog Analyzer is a comprehensive network firewall security and log management tool that helps you manage your firewall rules; detect malicious traffic that surpass your firewall defenses; and centrally collect, analyze, correlate, and archive your firewall logs.

What important data is recorded in firewall logs?

Firewall logs record details of the traffic interacting with your network and the actions implemented by the firewalls.

They mainly include the:

  • Source and destination IP address of the traffic.
  • Port numbers.
  • Protocols used.
  • State of the connection.
  • Packets allowed and dropped by the firewall.
  • Dates and time stamps of events.
  • Firewall user account and configuration changes.

Where are firewall logs stored and how do I access them?

Here's a list of commonly used firewall systems and the default firewall log storage paths:

  • Windows:    C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\Firewall
  • Cisco:    Go to the Cisco web interface. Then go to Device Management > Logs > View Logs.
  • Barracuda:    Log into the Barracuda web firewall interface. Go to Advanced tab > Syslog settings > Export Logs.
  • Fortinet:    Go to the Fortinet web interface and navigate to System Settings > Event Log. Use filters to extract the required logs.
  • PaloAlto:    Go to the PaloAlto Networks UI and then go to Monitor > Logs > Log type.

How do I enable Windows firewall logging and configure log storage?

  • Go to Group Policy Management Console > Forest > Domains. Select your domain > Group Policy Object, then right-click and select Edit.
  • Expand Computer Configuration in the Navigation pane and go to Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Windows Firewall With Advanced Security > Windows Firewall Properties.
  • Select the network location type (domain, private, or public) > Logging > Customize.
  • Toggle to Yes next to Log dropped packets and Log successful connections. This will enable logging of firewall events.

To manage firewall storage

After Step 4, uncheck the box next to Not configured. Find the Size limit field and enter the custom file size in KB.

Why are specific tools required to manage firewalls?

Enterprises use a combination of hardware-, software-, and even cloud-based firewalls (Firewall as a Service). This creates an environment with a heterogeneous set of network entities. To monitor them manually, security admins need to enable logging, manage log storage, and study and analyze the logs in different formats.

Considering the massive amount of logs generated by firewalls, these laborious tasks need to be automated with a firewall security log management tool like EventLog Analyzer, which offers a wide range of useful features to secure networks, like dynamic threat handling, real-time alerting, log storage management, firewall-specific reports, and analytical dashboards.
