LOGS - AUDIT LOGS

This menu is not available on firewalls that are not equipped with storage media.

The Logs - Audit logs module allows you to read logs (made easy with views by types of alarms, connections, web logs, etc) generated by appliances and stored locally. Advanced filters allow these logs to be thoroughly analyzed.

Personal data

For the purpose of compliance with the European GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), personal data (user name, source IP address, source name, source MAC address) is no longer displayed in logs and reports and have been replaced with the term "Anonymized".

To view such data, the administrator must then enable the "Full access to logs (sensitive data)" privilege by clicking on "Restricted access to logs" (upper banner of the web administration interface), then by entering an authorization code obtained from the administrator's supervisor (see the section Administrators > Ticket management). This code is valid for a limited period defined at the moment of its creation.

To release this privilege, the administrator must click on "Full access to logs (sensitive data)" in the upper banner of the web administration interface, then click on "Release" in the dialog box that appears.

After a privilege is obtained or released, data must be refreshed.

Please note that every time a "Full access to logs (sensitive data)" privilege is obtained or released, it will generate an entry in logs.

Collaborative security

For more collaborative security, based on views and audit logs, it is now possible in just one click to increase the level of protection on a host. An interactive feature will allow you to add hosts to a pre-set group and assign a strengthened protection profile or specific filter rules to them (quarantine zones, restricted access, etc.).

For further information, please refer to the Technical Note Collaborative security.
