About snarelite Open Source Project:

A series of basic log collection agents that facilitate centralized analysis of audit log data. Available for Linux, Windows, Solaris, IIS, Lotus Notes, Irix, AIX, ISA/IIS.


With changes to Windows 2008, snarelite will not meet compliance or auditing standards, such as PCI, HIPAA, SOX,FISMA. It is unsupported and may not capture half of your critical custom Event Logs.

snarelite was created as a consulting tool for SIEM security 20 years ago. The most up-to-date version is Snare Enterprise, which is fully supported and used by Fortune 500 companies and major government institutions. Snare's Enterprise Agents have a 30-day trial so you can test it out yourself.
