Filtering windows event logs

As our company is getting larger we are having an issue with security event logs running over the size limit quickly. I was wondering if there is a way to filter the log for the bad password event ID and save the last 5MB of the filtered events. I found the create custom log, but it only seems to create a preselected filter for the existing events.
