Syslog auditing

Syslog auditing in EventLog Analyzer

The complexity of networks is always increasing, and collecting and monitoring all relevant information produced by a network’s devices and applications is imperative to protect the network from threats. Syslogs are a reliable source for this information; when analyzed and correlated, they can help administrators diagnose causes of security or operational problems.

A properly configured syslog auditing tool is the fastest way an administrator can become aware of a problem. Detecting the sudden increase in event volume and severity can be especially useful for the use cases listed below.

  • Security auditing: A network contains many devices that no one should be trying to gain access to on an average day. If a firewall that only gets logged in to twice per audit cycle suddenly has daily login attempts (successful or otherwise), it bears investigation.
  • Application monitoring: Syslogs can give you more insights than just how an application is running on a server. They can answer questions about applications continuously trying to access a locked file, an attempted database write generating an error, and more.

Proactive syslog monitoring and troubleshooting reduces trouble tickets because you detect and resolve issues in the early stages of an incident. Every good syslog auditing tool needs a comprehensive dashboard, an alerting system, and log storage with search options. EventLog Analyzer offers these and more, and includes the following capabilities:

Syslog monitoring: EventLog Analyzer functions as a central repository for syslogs from multiple sources. It features several components including a syslog listener, a database, and a log parser. Learn more

Syslog management: EventLog Analyzer functions like a syslog daemon or a syslog server, and collects syslog messages by listening to the syslog port of the devices that have been added for monitoring. It then analyzes the collected logs, and provides insights on network activities in concise reports. Learn more

Syslog reporting: EventLog Analyzer provides a wide collection of predefined reports for syslogs from Unix and Linux devices. These can be used to secure Unix and Linux devices against insider threats and external breach attempts. Learn more

Syslog forwarding: EventLog Analyzer’s syslog forwarder is designed to receive syslogs and send the data to a third-party server or SIEM application. Learn more
