Does your organization run Microsoft Windows as your main operating platform? If so, then you’re probably aware that the Windows Event Log enables you to record logs in a common format and store them in a shared location. Recording the actions of your users is essential in understanding how they are interacting with your critical servers and data. Knowing this helps you increase security, streamline IT operations and meet compliance demands. But, is the Windows Event Log the best way to do this?
In this whitepaper, we will take a look at the logging infrastructure of this platform and see if it holds up against modern security threats. We will also try and find a way of developing a seamless auditing solution in Windows itself, without the need for investing in costly third-party solutions.
