| vCenter server generates volumes of security-relevant application-level events. Examples include logins, system reconfigurations, system degradation warnings, and more. To ensure these events are available for forensic analysis and correlation, they must be sent to the syslog and forwarded on to the configured Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system and/or central log server.
The vCenter server sends events to syslog by default, but this configuration must be verified and maintained. |
