Free tool to archive audit event logs
Event log data is a critical source of information for security audit, compliance, and troubleshooting purposes. Major compliance regulations require event log audit data to be archived for up to 7 years. Netwrix event log archiver is a free event log management tool with audit log consolidation and archival features.
The tool collects and consolidates windows event logs from multiple servers and archives them in a central location. The archives are stored in the original evt format with compression and can be viewed using the event viewer or imported into a sql database for quick reporting.
Usage of this tool removes the burden of manual management of event log retention and helps with passing security and compliance audits (sox, hipaa, pci, glba, etc). Two editions of netwrix event log archiver are available: freeware and commercial. Please contact netwrix corporation at www.
