Operating System logs are not enough.
In today's environment of increasing compliance and security requirements, you
need the same level of auditing at the application layer as you find at the operating
system and network device layers.
But each application handles logging in its own way. Some applications have no audit
capability at all. Many other applications produce proprietary logs that are difficult
to access and hard to understand.
Moreover, audit logs belong in your SIEM for archival, correlation, alerting and reporting.
But many application audit logs are innaccessible to SIEM and log management solutions.
Randy Franklin Smith, widely known for his research on the Windows security log, comes a solution
to the vexing problem of application audit logs.
The expanding family of LOGbinder software collectors translate cryptic and proprietary
application logs into easy-to-understand and easy-to-manage Windows event log entries
or a variety of other output formats easily consumed by your SIEM / log management solution.
LOGbinder collectors turn raw log data like this:
into fully translated and easy to understand Windows event log messages like this:
With LOGbinder collectors processing, you can bring all the collection, alerting, reporting
and archival functionality of your log-management solution to bear on applications
that previously weren't possible to audit.
