10/16: Enabling Log Review for AWS CloudTrail Logs | Software Updates

Published: October 2016


Alert Logic® Log Review™ now supports Amazon Web Services (AWS) CloudTrail. The Log Review service, which reviews curated log searches around specific events and platforms daily, now includes CloudTrail logs in its daily review process.

Original Reports

Log Review has historically reviewed 21 pre-defined reports that focus specifically on PCI compliance and security-related activities, including Unix/Windows failed logins, user and group modification, and policy changes.

The initial 21 events and activities that are analyzed through Log Review fall within these categories:

  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • Windows serverE
  • Unix/Linux
  • Oracle and SQL databases
  • Network devices

Additional Reports

In order to extend the Log Review service into customers' AWS environments, an additional category, including 12 reports specific to AWS CloudTrail, are now included with the original 21 pre-defined reports.

The 12 additional AWS CloudTrail-specific events and activities that are now analyzed through Log Review fall within the AWS CloudTrail category. The additional events and activities include:

  • S3 Bucket Activity
  • Security Group Configuration Changes
  • Network Access Control List Changes
  • Network Gateway Changes
  • Virtual Private Cloud Changes
  • EC2 Large Instance Changes
  • CloudTrail Changes
  • IAM Policy Changes
  • Console Login Without Multi-Factor Authentication
  • AWS User Account Modified
  • AWS User Group Modified

NOTE: This software update does not change the Log Review service. Rather, it extends the original Log Review service into AWS environments.
