Mitigating DoS attacks with security auditing

Mitigating DoS attacks with security auditing

One of the biggest security threats in any network is a DoS (Denial of Service) attack. A DoS attack means that users won't be able to access the resource they need in your network, potentially causing a massive dip in business productivity. For example, if your business gets its revenue through your website, a DoS attack on your web server can have dire consequences. 

For attackers, it is relatively easy to carry out a DoS attack when compared to other cyber attacks, and for security administrators it can be very difficult to detect DoS attackers among legitimate increases in traffic. This has made DoS attacks a huge problem in today's IT security space, and a huge challenge for organizations of all sizes. 

Auditing and alerting is the ideal solution for detecting DoS attacks

DoS attacks are usually carried out using techniques such as flooding, including network SYN floods. Since log data contains invaluable information about events occurring in your network, monitoring and auditing log data in your network is a must and can go a long way in detecting and mitigating DoS attacks.

EventLog Analyzer audits log data from your network security devices—firewalls and IDS/IPS—and instantly detects DoS/DDoS attacks and alerts you in real time. And when it comes to web servers, EventLog Analyzer has all the reports you need. Track web server activity to detect when a specific IP keeps sending repeated connection requests, or use EventLog Analyzer's predefined reports and alerts specifically designed to detect DoS attacks.

  • 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.
