Windows event log management is an important need in almost all enterprises. Logs need to be archived for the purpose of network auditing and more recently to comply with various regulations such as HIPAA Compliance, GLBA Compliance, PCI Compliance, and Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX or SARBOX) Compliance . Apart from this, system administrators look at event logs as a critical source to troubleshoot performance problems on hosts across the network. The need for a complete event log management solution is often underestimated; leading to long hours spent sifting through tons of event logs to troubleshoot a single problem. Efficient event log analysis reduces system downtime, increases network performance, and helps tighten security policies in the enterprise.
EventLog Analyzer can collect, analyze, report, and archive all event logs received from all the Windows systems in your network. EventLog Analyzer also supports logs received from other syslog supported systems & devices.
