Anyone know of a good Windows Event Log Management Tool?

I am looking for a good Windows Event Log Management Tool.  Need something that will archive events from 20+ servers and provide a nice easy to use reporting tool for SOX compliance.  ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Excerpt of description
Event Log Explorer" is an effective software solution for viewing, monitoring and analyzing events recorded in Security, System, Application and another logs of Microsoft Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 operating systems. Event Log Explorer greatly extends standard Windows Event Viewer monitoring functionality and brings many new features.
It is impossible to find a system administrator for whom the problem of event log analysis has never been acute. To keep your network safe and sound you have to constantly trace valid and invalid logon attempts, events related to resource use, such as creating, opening, or deleting of files, etc. This process of monitoring event logs has always devoured a lot of time.

EventsManager Event logs are a valuable tool to monitor network security and performance that are often underutilized due to their complexity and volume. As organizations grow in size, they require a more structured approach towards event log management and retention. A recent survey carried out by SANS Institute found that 44% of system administrators do not keep logs more than a month. Proper event log management helps you to meet several objectives including: Information system and network security; System health monitoring; Legal and regulatory compliance (SOX, PCI DSS, HIPAA); Forensic investigations. GFI EventsManager collects data from all devices that use Windows event logs, W3C, and Syslog and applies the best rules and filtering in the industry to identify key data. This allows you to track when staff swipe their fob, pick up the phone to call home, turn on their PC, what they do on their PC and which files they access during their work day. GFI EventsManager also provides you with real-time alerting when critical system and security events arise and suggests remedial action.
GFI EventsManager has a lot of good reviews too.
