Improving your Security with Apache Log Analysis

How can Apache logs help you improve your security posture?

Apache logs contain critical data on your users. The right analysis of your Apache logs can help you move from reactive to proactive. A new approach takes the power of big data and advanced analytics and applies them to end-user behavior. It detects anomalies (deviations from the established baseline) and flags exceptions in real-time to help you identify real and potential threats.

Sumo Logic can help you get there. When you use Sumo Logic as an Apache security log analyzer, you can:

  • Get visibility into which assets users are logging in to.
  • Identify the ports and protocols typically used.
  • Receive alerts based on behavioral changes.

The Sumo Logic App for Apache uses the default error log file format.

Log Analysis Customized for Your Apache Access

When you start realizing the value Apache logs can provide to you and your operations team, there are three steps you can take to get the most value from your Apache Access Logs:

Get your logs into one place: Sumo Logic provides lots of different ways to do this. The easiest is to use our setup wizard and follow the instructions to set up a collector and point it your logs.

Jump-start your implementation: Getting started with log analysis can be difficult to do if you haven’t done it before. Sumo Logic provides an Apache application with built-in best practices that provides easy-to-use dashboards and sample searches to get you started quickly.

Decide what is most important to you: You can’t improve what you can’t measure. And you can’t measure it if you don’t know what “it” is. Now that you have the data and you know how to extract value, look at the most important metrics for your business.

Learn how to customize Sumo Logic for your Apache server environment in our documentation.
