Need recommendations for a PKE Logging and Event program to monitor, collect, store, and analyze data

PKE Logging and Event program to monitor,  collect, store, and analyze audit data and to retain system logs,  along with audit data, and IA events for those  devices. This needs to be done on Cisco Routers, Switches, ASA firewalls, Windows servers and preferably other types of servers like Unix and Linux.

I need some recommendations from the experts who have experience with programs like this?

Thank you,

Quite, those experts all work for security services.
