About event export
Oct 23, 2023
Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console allows you to receive information about events that occur during the operation of Administration Server and Kaspersky applications installed on managed devices. Information about events is saved in the Administration Server database.
You can use event export within centralized systems that deal with security issues on an organizational and technical level, provide security monitoring services, and consolidate information from different solutions. These are SIEM systems, which provide real-time analysis of security alerts and events generated by network hardware and applications, or Security Operation Centers (SOCs).
These systems receive data from many sources, including networks, security, servers, databases, and applications. SIEM systems also provide functionality to consolidate monitored data in order to help you avoid missing critical events. In addition, the systems perform automated analysis of correlated events and alerts in order to notify the administrators of immediate security issues. Alerting can be implemented through a dashboard or can be sent through third-party channels such as email.
The process of exporting events from Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console to external SIEM systems involves two parties: an event sender, Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, and an event receiver, a SIEM system. To successfully export events, you must configure this in your SIEM system and in the Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console. It does not matter which side you configure first. You can either configure the transmission of events in the Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console, and then configure the receipt of events by the SIEM system, or vice versa.
Syslog format of event export
You can send events in the Syslog format to any SIEM system. Using the Syslog format, you can relay any events that occur on the Administration Server and in Kaspersky applications that are installed on managed devices. When exporting events in the Syslog format, you can select exactly which types of events will be relayed to the SIEM system.
Receipt of events by the SIEM system
The SIEM system must receive and correctly parse the events received from Kaspersky Security Center Cloud Console. For these purposes, you must properly configure the SIEM system. The configuration depends on the specific SIEM system utilized. However, there are a number of general steps in the configuration of all SIEM systems, such as configuring the receiver and the parser.
