Syslog ingestion and monitoring Direct link to this section

Arctic Wolf® can ingest and monitor syslogs to provide insight into your network and enhance your network security.

Note: Arctic Wolf supports TLS version 1.2 for encrypted syslog data sent to the Arctic Wolf Sensor. If your log source requires older cipher suites, contact your Concierge Security® Team (CST) to discuss an exception.

Arctic Wolf provides a certificate to use when configuring encryption for syslog forwarding. For more informaton, contact your CST.

Supported log formats Direct link to this section

Arctic Wolf supports raw log ingestion for syslog integrations. However, we do not currently provide security monitoring for all log types, such as non-RFC logs.

Additional configuration Direct link to this section

Some syslog servers require additional configuration steps. For steps to enable Arctic Wolf to monitor a specific syslog server, such as Palo Alto, Fortinet, ZScaler, or Infoblox, see Syslog Configurations.

If you have any questions or run into any configuration issues, contact your CST for assistance.
