SYSLOG Server, SIEM, QRadar or other event log management tools need middleware to forward event logs on iSeries AS400, OS390 mainframe and AIX systems to format the event logs into Common Event Format CEF, Key Value Pair KVP or another supported format, so IBM system security event logs can be parsed properly before forwarding. IBM iSeries AS400, Power AIX and OS390 Mainframe systems are examples of systems that do not natively support the required CEF required by SIEM and SYSLOG tools such as ArcSight, QRadar, Splunk, McAfee, LogRhythm, Kiwi, Solarwinds, Alert Logic, RSA enVision, SYSLOG NG and any other event log management products. If your company does not already have a SYSLOG Server or SIEM, the Cross-Platform Audit CPA can serve as an independent event log management facilty for auditing, reporting, intrusion detection alerts and long-term archiving. This SYSLOG facility allows integration of disparate system event logs by formatting them into a supported and parsing format.
QRadar SIEM security enterprise edition is an integrated solution for vulnerability and risk management, cybersecurity, threat hunting, security incident response and forensics analysis which utilize security AI and machine learning technology to automate manual tasks, as an appliance or software node.
iSeries QRadar SIEM enables collection and forwarding of IBM i AS400 event logs to QRadar SIEM in a normalized LEEF format with QID, log enrichment, and support any log source on system: QAUDJRN, Database Journals, QHST, Exit Points, Network Commands, SQL Statements, Open Source Protocols, Ports, Sockets, Accounting Journal, Collection Services, Spool Files, static data and other data sources.
