I have been using a product from Kiwi called Kiwi Syslog Daemon. It runs on
Windows NT/2000. There are two versions: One that runs as a service and one
that is an app. The product is free. If you want the advanced features you
can purchase the product for only $49.00. I have it setup to email me every
morning with a list of events from the night before.

Long time lurker, first time question here.

Let me say first that I wear many hats in my job, and security is one of
them. In the past I've been happy with just applying patches from MS
and making sure things are up and running.

Lately though, I've been intrigued by the other people that take a daily
look at their Syslogs and actually take a more proactive stance in
security. I'd love to be able to do this, and therefore I believe my
first step would be to setup my PIX to start generating a SYSLOG and
then finding something to could intelligently report that SYSLOG back to
me.

Knowing that there are people are there that are TONS smarter than I in
this area, and probably have already done this, I was hoping for ideas
on inexpensive products that would be able to read PIX SYSLOG's and give
me daily reports on what I see.

I appreciate any help you offer, and thank you for your time and
efforts.
