We encourage administrators to not only make the most of Windows Event Forwarding, but to also go beyond and consider other log formats and sources.
With the NXLog Enterprise Edition, you can set up logging that supports not only the Windows Event Log but many more data sources on the Windows platform.
In addition, it can also be configured to parse log data; to convert Windows Event Log to syslog, JSON, and other formats; and to forward events directly to most popular SIEM products.
Enterprises, service providers, and MSSPs using NXLog will have no need for a Windows-based WEC server as a WEC can be set up on Linux.
Whether you are new to WEF or seeking to expand your current Windows logging system capabilities, there is something for you with NXLog.
If you are interested in testing out the capabilities of the NXLog Enterprise Edition, you can download a trial or contact us with a question.
Our User Guide also has many configuration examples that are ready for use.
