Firewalls offer visibility into the source and type of network traffic entering your organization's network. This makes firewall logs a vital source of information, including details such as source addresses, destination address, protocols, and port numbers for all connections. This information can provide insights into unknown security threats and is a vital tool in threat management.

EventLog Analyzer is a central log management solution that collects logs from your firewall devices and organizes them in a single location. This solution is also a firewall auditing tool that makes it easy for security admins to monitor firewall logs, conduct firewall analysis, and detect abnormalities. EventLog Analyzer uses correlation and real-time alerts to actively detect and mitigate potential threats.


Frequently asked questions

  • How do firewall logs work?
  • How can monitoring firewall logs help protect networks?
  • How can I automate firewall log monitoring?
  • What firewall devices are supported by EventLog Analyzer?

1. How do firewall logs work?

Firewall logs contain information on an event such as:

  • Event type
  • Source and destination IP address
  • Port number
  • Protocol
  • Timestamp
  • Action
  • Rule ID

The firewall logs are parsed and analyzed by either a firewall analyzer or a log management solution to identify patterns or anomalies to detect an attack, and generate reports. The information contained in the firewall logs are analyzed to provide insights into network traffic patterns, security events, and connection statistics.

2. How can monitoring firewall logs help protect networks?

Monitoring firewall logs provides insights into network activity and potential security threats. It helps with:

  • Network visibility: Firewall logs provide insights into a network's traffic and activities. This helps identify trends and any anomalous behavior within the network. Enhanced network visibility contributes to proactive measures in security management.
  • Threat detection: Analyzing firewall logs helps organizations detect any suspicious activity, port scanning, unauthorized access attempts, or any unusual traffic patterns that could be indicative of an attack. Analyzing these logs allows for suspicious behavior to be detected in real-time, which helps organizations take immediate action to mitigate risks and prevent security incidents.
  • Intrusion detection: Firewall logs can be used to detect network intrusions. Analyzing the logs for indicators of compromise or known attack techniques can help identify potential threats and mitigate unauthorized access attempts.
  • Incident response: Firewall logs provide valuable insights into a security incident. This helps IT security teams understand the nature, scope, and impact of the incident to facilitate incident response.
  • Compliance: Firewall logs help organizations demonstrate adherence to compliance mandates and regulations, and industry-specific security requirements.

3. How can I automate firewall log monitoring?

When a firewall log analyzer monitors and analyzes the logs automatically, it helps detect threats in real-time and takes immediate actions to minimize the incident's impact. Automation of firewall log monitoring can be achieved with a firewall log management solution, such as EventLog Analyzer. The solution correlates suspicious events and uses automated workflows to mitigate threats immediately.

4. What firewall devices are supported by EventLog Analyzer?

EventLog Analzyer offers out-of-the-box support for firewalls, next-generation firewalls (NGFWs), intrusion detection systems (IDS), and intrusion prevention systems (IPSs) from leading vendors.
