That’s where event log monitoring comes into play. Here’s why:
Activate your logs (all of them) and aggregate them in a central location!With logs spread across dozens or even hundreds of systems, there’s no way you can manage them where they are. Log monitoring applications like agileSI™ can gather up all your logs in a central location, making it easy to collect, configure, analyze, store, and manage.
Feed these logs into a SIEM and perform security checks!Regular security reviews are great, but they are reviews. They can only catch things that have already happened. Event log monitoring with Security Information and Events Monitoring (SIEM) can detect issues in real time, allowing you to respond much quicker (in real time) when bad things happen. And if you have the right SIEM you are even able to see threats coming before they do the damage. This is where the real time based agileSI™ detection scenarios come into play.
Work with multiple formats!
One of the biggest challenges with manually parsing logs is the number of different formats that are out there, from syslog to SNMP traps, to IIS W3C logs and Windows events. Event log monitoring can deal with all of these and more, so you can focus on what happened, and let the app worry about in what format it was recorded. agileSI™ structures the logs in the right format so they become compatible.
Perform searches across logs!With multiple systems involved, if you cannot search across logs, you cannot tie events together. Event log monitoring can search across all your logs to find what is happening across multiple systems. agileSI™ adds great forensic tools and searches to correlate in real time.
Correlate events!Event correlation is impossible manually, but is easy for event log monitoring applications to handle, connecting the dots between all these SAP® log files (syslog, SAL, ICM and many more) as well as the bigger picture with for example firewall logs, domain controllers, connection logs on VPN concentrators, file access logs on servers, etc. The agileSI™ SAP® security and log expertise combined with SecureLink's deep know-how becomes a force to be reckoned with.
Meet compliance requirements!With so many regulations requiring not only that you log, but that you review and respond to events in logs, event log monitoring applications can automate the tasks that will help you to meet your compliance requirements. It’s a very economical way to ensure you don’t have an exception in your audit report. If you could limit this specific SAP® auditing time (and thus the bill) in half .... would you be interested in finding out how?
