Cyfin Syslog Server is Now Available

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

We are pleased to announce the release of the Cyfin Syslog Server. This new feature allows our customers to send syslog data directly to Cyfin. Previously, customers would have to install and configure a third-party syslog server. This new feature will streamline the setup process and simplify administration for our customers. There is no limit to the number of configured syslog servers, and each syslog server can be set to receive syslog data from different firewalls, proxies, and gateway devices simultaneously. Cyfin will then aggregate the data across all the configured syslog devices and generate a single report that contains all the information you are looking for in an easy-to-read actionable format.

Currently support devices:Cyfin_Full_F_Syslog

  • Astaro Security
  • Barracuda Networks
  • Bloxx Proxy
  • EdgeWave iPrism

The reports with this functionality are User Audit Detail, Category Audit Detail and Site Audit Detail.
