what's the best way to monitor the security logs of a PIX firewall?
Posted on 2004-11-04
I need to monitor a PIX firewall for any attempts to hack into our system, etc. Mostly, just basic monitoring of the firewall to make sure that security is not breached. Does anyone know of a good solution for doing this, preferably freeware? I am relatively savvy with Cisco routers, but haven't dealt much with the PIX. I would prefer something that integrates easily, has easy to read reports, and doesn't require much configuration of the firewall, on my part. I know that I'm basically asking for a Cadillac for free, but maybe someone has some ideas. My company is going through Sarbanes-Oxley auditing and I need to come up with some ideas relatively quickly. Thanks in advance.
