You can enable automatic event export in Kaspersky Security Center.

Only general events can be exported from managed applications over the CEF and LEEF formats.  Application-specific events cannot be exported from managed applications over the CEF and LEEF formats. If you need to export events of managed applications or a custom set of events that has been configured using the policies of managed applications, you have to export the events in the Syslog format.

To enable automatic export of events:

  1. In the Kaspersky Security Center console tree, select the Administration Server whose events you want to export.
  2. In the workspace of the selected Administration Server, select the Events tab.
  3. Click the drop-down arrow next to the Configure notifications and event export link and select Configure export to SIEM system in the drop-down list.

    The events properties window opens, displaying the Event export section.

  4. In the Event export section, specify the following export settings:

    In the Event export section, the Automatically export events to SIEM system database check box is selected,the SIEM system property is set to ArcSight (CEF format),SIEM system server address and port are specified,the Protocol property is set to TCP/IP.

    Event export section of the event properties window
