Mitigating attacks on web servers

Mitigating web server attacks

As the backbone of websites and applications, web servers need to be constantly available to make sure your business is up and running. Given their importance to businesses, web servers are often targeted by hackers, which can lead to downtime or even exposure of confidential data. As security administrators know all too well, web servers face a variety of threats, including SQL injection, cross site scripting, and DoS (denial of service) attacks. Keep your business operating smoothly by auditing your web server logs.

Log data from your web server contains all the information you need to analyze attacks. With EventLog Analyzer, you can periodically import log data from your IIS or Apache web server in order to keep tabs on your web server security. Web server attacks and web server errors often go hand in hand. If your web server is throwing up too many errors, users might be experiencing difficulties while visiting your website, and may not be able to access the requested resource or page. This may well be because of an attack on your web server. So, auditing log data can go further than just usage analysis and help you secure your web server. 

Comprehensively audit web server errors and attacks

Use EventLog Analyzer to track all the errors on your web servers such as bad requests, gateway timeouts, access denials, and more. Audit the top errors from your web server and pull all the relevant details you need to track and mitigate attacks. Access dedicated web server attack reports to view a summary of SQL injections, cross site scripting, DoS attacks, malicious URL requests, and more.

EventLog Analyzer detects these attacks using web server log data and neatly presents threats in the form of graphical reports. Get a clear picture of each attack, including details such as the client IP address, server IP address, URI stem, source port, and more.

Additionally, sort reports by top categories to thoroughly audit your web server and use your findings to mitigate attacks sooner. For instance, you can easily detect suspicious users, who may be attempting a DoS attack, and quickly take steps to block them. This helps you combat web server threats and ensure that your site is always up and running, so that business productivity doesn't dip.

Customer Speaks
  • Credit Union of Denver has been using EventLog Analyzer for more than four years for our internal user activity monitoring.

  • 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.
