Syslog Consolidation and Backup

  • Consolidate your syslogs by centrally saving and backing up your syslog messages to Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite, text files or CSV files.
  • Use regular expressions to parse attribute value pairs to their native data types then save to your RDBMS for internal and external analysis (e.g. integer, decimal and date/time).
  • Use our Log Entry Retention Policy and Directory Cleaner Templates to automatically delete old syslog messages and file backups no longer required for compliance and auditing.

  • Automatically detect and apply IPS remediation actions, such as, running a PowerShell Command to block a IP actively involved in a cyber-attack.
  • Parses RFC 5424 and RFC 3164 compliant messages.
  • Use regular expressions to parse attribute value pairs to their native data types, for example, integer, decimal and date/time.
  • Create Complex Filter Criteria to parse and filter any data typed attribute value pair.
