EventTracker syslog for Windows is secure, certified software that runs as a service and converts Windows event logs to standard syslog for transport to any standard third-party syslog receiver. All Windows versions including servers (2012, 2008 R2, 2003) and workstations (Win 8, 7, Vista, XP) are supported. Windows events can be selectively forwarded in real-time as RFC 3164 syslog messages (either UDP or TCP) or cached to local text file and uploaded at pre-defined intervals via ftp, sftp or scp to one or more network or security monitoring consoles. Application log files such as IIS or flat files can also be transmitted. Encryption using TLS is supported.
EventTracker syslog software is designed to allow organizations to smoothly integrate security, compliance and operational monitoring of Windows infrastructure to existing consoles. Being native to Windows, EventTracker syslog is the most feature-rich solution of its kind and addresses many deficiencies that have existed with other offerings.
