Export logs to Syslog

ESET PROTECT can export certain logs/events and send them to your Syslog server. Events from the following log categories are being exported to Syslog server: Detection, Firewall, HIPS, Audit and ESET Inspect. Events are generated on any managed client computer running an ESET product (for example, ESET Endpoint Security). These events can be processed by any Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution capable of importing events from a Syslog server. Events are written to the Syslog server by ESET PROTECT.

2.To enable exporting, click More > Settings > Advanced Settings > Logging > Export logs to Syslog.
