    Hi All,

    I would like to know which are the best Enterprise log management systems
    out there in the market. Both commercial and Open source are fine.
    Here are the requirements:

    1. Log collection from variety of systems like Windows, Linux, Routers and

    2. Analysis of collected logs and co-relation.

    3. Report generation for the activities for starndards like ISO 270001

    4. Email/SMS alerts.

    Thanks in advance.

    We've been using Cisco MARS for a little over a year now.

    It's great compared to what we were using before... We were just using homebrew scripts to go out and look for certain events and to dump those in a report. Obviously, the firewalls and IDS and other network devices all had other logs... but it was not all in one place. We were using a whole mix and it was a real pain to figure out exactly what was going on. We don't have dedicated people to sit around and just watch logs... We'd be lucky if we could find 1-2 hours in the week to pour through logs. I was using Bindview and having it go out to all the servers and report on important security events and then mail it to me.

    The MARs took care of a lot of this for us. Once it's installed and fine tuned... it's great. There were a lot of false positives out of the box... but what system doesn't?

    We choose Cisco, in part, because we were moving towards a full cisco network.

    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.
