Event Log Monitoring

Windows Event Log Monitoring

Most major data breaches happen because of insiders, yet organizations fall short in monitoring internal network activities.

Monitoring internal network activities has become the prime requirement for organizations - large or small. To secure your network from breaches and threats, organizations need to take proactive measures to ensure the security of their network and data. Monitoring event log data is the most accurate way to detect network anomalies, data breach attempts and tracking network intruders.

Mitigate Insider Threat's by Monitoring Event Log Data

Most organizations have a network environment which includes Windows servers and workstations. Microsoft Windows operating systems generate a variety of event logs and these logs if monitored, can help network administrators to secure their network from internal threats and for conducting log forensics investigation. The event logs contain vital information such as failed logons, logon failures, failed attempts to access secure files, security log tampering etc. which helps you to keep your organization secure from network threats.

Event logs get generated in EVT and EVTX formats. The Windows NT, XP, 2000 and 2003 server and workstation versions support the EVT log format and Windows Vista and Server 2008 versions use the EVTX log format.  Monitoring these Windows log events (in EVT and EVTX formats) across multiple Window versions becomes a challenge for network administrators and manually monitoring these event log data is cumbersome and time consuming.

EventLog Analyzer's Event Log Monitoring Features

Event Log Collection and Monitoring

Windows Event Log Collection and Monitoring

For event log collection, this event log monitor software does not require a separate agent to be installed on each machine from which logs are collected. EventLog Analyzer uses Agentless log collection technology to collect Windows event log data.

The event logs collected are available on the dashboard with the counts based on the errors, warning messages and other specific events. By using these counts, you can view the Windows log data in volumes in an organized way, making it comprehensive and available for rapid diagnose of issues that erupted within the Windows operating systems.

Event Log Monitoring for Regulatory Compliance

Windows Event Log Collection and Monitoring

Regulatory compliance has become the highest priority for IT administrators. It is critical for organizations to observe the regulatory compliance audit guidelines since being non-compliant to the regulatory standards can result in severe penalties. EventLog Analyzer allows IT administrators to meet regulatory compliance requirements by monitoring and analyzing event logs from their Windows servers and workstations in real-time.

With EventLog Analyzer you can generate pre-defined or canned compliance reports for event logs to meet audits such as HIPAA, GLBA, PCI DSS, SOX, FISMA, ISO ISO 27001/2 and more. This event log compliance reporting software also provides a value added feature that allows you to create custom report for new compliance to help comply with growing new regulatory acts demanding compliance in future.

Log Forensics and Raw Log Search on Event Log Data

Windows Event Log Collection and Monitoring

EventLog Analyzer makes event log forensic investigation very easy by allowing you to use its powerful search engine to search on both the raw and formatted event logs and instantly generate forensic reports based on the search results. Network administrators can now search the raw event logs and pinpoint the exact log entry which caused the security activity, find the exact time at which the corresponding security event had happened, who initiated the activity and also, the location from where the activity originated.

This search feature in this event log monitor software will help you to quickly track down the network intruder and is quite useful to law enforcing authorities for forensic analysis. Narrow down your search with EventLog Analyzer's robust event log search functionality that offers an easy search, based on specific event IDs of concern to the company's policy or a particular type of event: error, warning, failure, or miscellaneous categories. Archived Windows logs can be imported and security incident mining can be carried out by searching the raw  event logs.

Generating Reports from Windows Servers and Workstations

Custom Event Log Reports, Event Log Monitor Reports

EventLog Analyzer includes several pre-defined or canned reports based on event logs received from Windows servers and workstations. These reports show you details such as failed logons, logon failures due to bad passwords, account lockouts, failed attempts to access secure files, security log tampering, event trends, and more. Using these reports, administrators can easily determine errant users, and malfunctioning machines, thereby reducing the troubleshooting cycle.

EventLog Analyzer allows you to use various criteria to generate custom reports on your Windows machine generated event log data. The criteria are: Log message, User, Event ID and Event Type/Severity.

Configure Real-Time Alerts on Windows Servers and Workstations

Custom Event Log Reports, Event Log Monitor Reports

EventLog Analyzer generates real-time alerts on event logs, which notifies administrators when an event matching a specific criteria is generated. Alerting helps administrators monitor critical servers and processes on the Windows network in real-time.

You can define which Windows Server or Workstation or group of Windows devices need to be monitored. You can also trigger an alert based on events generated with a specific log type, event ID, log message, or severity. Event alerts are send in real-time via email, sms and through custom run programs

  • 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.
