SYMP-NM-000140 - Symantec ProxySG must back up event logs onto a different system or system component than the system or component being audited - Syslog Enabled
Protection of log data includes assuring log data is not accidentally lost or deleted. Regularly backing up audit records to a different system or onto separate media than the system being audited helps to assure, in the event of a catastrophic system failure, the audit records will be retained. This helps to ensure a compromise of the information system being audited does not also result in a compromise of the audit records.
Configure event logging to a remote events server to ensure that event logs are recorded on a different system. To configure Syslog: 1. Log on to the Web Management Console. 2. Click Maintenance >> Event Logging >> Syslog. 3. Enter the IP address or name of a syslog server, click 'OK'. 4. Repeat step 3 for any additional syslog servers. 5. Click 'Apply'.
