Log Forwarding - Discovery Logs

Overview

Discovery logs may be forwarded to Security Information Event Management (SIEM) systems to aggregate into a single management platform.

Valtix supports viewing security event information directly within the UI. These events are available under the Investigate -> Traffic section. The events are categorized and viewable as follows:

Category Type Description
DNS Logs DNS_LOG Correlation of Threat Intelligence with DNS Log information gathered from cloud provider
VPC Logs VPC_LOG Correlation of Threat Intelligence with VPC/VNet Flow Log information gathered from cloud provider

Each of the categories can be sent to a SIEM using a Log Forwarding Profile and attaching the Profile to the onboarded Cloud Account. The Log Forwarding destinations currently supported by Valtix are:
