A remote collector collects, compresses, and encrypts syslog data from the configured remote machines to send directly to Alert Logic®. The following article describes how to collect remote logs in Cloud environments.
Please review the Remote Collector requirements, and note that remote collectors only support syslog collection.
Note: This information applies only to customers with Alert Logic® Cloud Defender™ or Alert Logic Log Manager™ entitlements.
