Event Log Management

EventLog Analyzer: Feature-packed event log management software

In most business networks, Windows devices are the most popular choice. To deal with the terabytes of event log data these devices generate, security administrators can use EventLog Analyzer, a powerful log management tool that covers end-to-end event log management. From collecting logs in the network to archiving those logs after a time determined by the admin, this tool can automate it all.

The following sections cover the various steps involved in event log management along with how EventLog Analyzer handles each of them.

Event log collection

An important part of an event log management tool is its ability to collect event logs from every source possible. EventLog Analyzer's event log collection capabilities stand out above other solutions with support for both agentless and agent-based methods of log collection.

Agentless event log collection: This method involves collecting event logs using native mechanisms in Windows devices. EventLog Analyzer can communicate with the Windows devices in your network and collect event logs via mechanisms such as WMI, DCOM, and RPC.

Agent-based event log collection: To address situations where native mechanisms are unable to be used for log collection, EventLog Analyzer comes bundled with an event log collecting agent. This agent needs to be installed in the log source in order for it to communicate with and deliver event logs to EventLog Analyzer's server.

Event log filters

Most of the event logs generated in a network denote routine activities. This presents two challenges:

  • Spotting event logs that provide actual security information.
  • Maintaing the required storage space for saving all the collected event logs.

To address these challenges, EventLog Analyzer provides event log filters, which can be customized to sort through the collected logs to find those that are significant from a security perspective. Customize filters based on the event log source, user, or components of the log.

Event log parser

To get the most out of collected event logs, it's vital for a log management tool to possess the ability to parse event logs. EventLog Analyzer has a built-in event log parser that can normalize, parse, and index event logs.

For example, let's take a log with a device name and user name in it; while this information is readily available, it's not clear which name is for the device and which is for the user. EventLog Analyzer's event log parser breaks event logs down so different pieces of information—for this example, the device name and username—each appear as their own logs, which are then grouped into the appropriate sections.

Event log analysis and correlation

For an event log management tool to double as an efficient security tool, log analysis is an important criterion. EventLog Analyzer expedites event log analysis with its log parser. This is further bolstered by EventLog Analyzer's correlation engine.

EventLog Analyzer's correlation engine can save you the painstaking process of manually correlating log data by automatically retrieving event logs from its database and comparing them with formatted logs from other sources. This will help with detecting any chain of events that might represent an attack on the network.

Event log search and forensic analysis

Organizations and their network administrators often need to perform forensic log analysis. During forensic log analysis, administrators have to search through logs to find the information they need, but the sheer volume of event logs generated by Windows devices makes searching these logs manually almost impossible.

EventLog Analyzer has a dedicated search module that takes very little getting used to. It supports search queries containing wildcards and Boolean operators; you can also perform grouped and range searches. To search for an event log using EventLog Analyzer, you just need to frame a logical query, with the help of continuous prompts, and the tool will render all the logs that match that query.

Event log archiving

Archiving and properly disposing of collected event logs is an important part of the event log management cycle. Additionally, all major IT mandates scrutinize the process organizations have for event log archival. Most of them mandate the number of days event logs need to be stored for before being permenantly deleted.

By deploying EventLog Analyzer, enterprises can automate event log archival. You can customize the number of days after which the collected event logs will be moved to the archive. In addition, you can also fix the number of days after which the archived event logs are permanently deleted. These values can be decided based on the compliance mandates and internal audit requirements that your business needs to comply with. EventLog Analyzer's event log archival feature will help enterprises comply with all major IT mandates such as HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, PCI DSS, and GDPR.
