Best Software For Firewall Alerts?

By tscislaw ·
Could anyone recommend a software package for generating realtime alerts for use with a Cisco PIX firewall?

I've seen some syslog reporting software but I'm looking for something to catch things in realtime and generate an alert. (maybe I'm looking for Intrustion Detection software)

Firewall Alerts

by richie In reply to Best Software For Firewal ...

Have you tried Private I from OpenSystems?

20. Can Private I generate SNMP traps?

This feature will be delivered in a future release. Today, Private I provides an alert output file that SNMP management consoles can read.

This might help. I do business with Opensystems and they are great, also recommend by Cisco.

Good Luck ...
If you find any good info please drop me an e-mail at

certified, and a buyer's guide with security tips & advice for selecting

certified, by vendor & by product - you can click on details of their
Firewall Lab Reports for whichever product you interested in.

I posted just a little a bit more info about this at discussion "Computer Security Education"

Personal Firewall URLs

by Al Macintyre In reply to ICSA Certifies Firewalls

Also, if you get to their Q+A board has some general posts asking about personal firewalls. To one of them, I posted over 20 URLs that I consider to be good resources for looking into Firewall information ... not quite what you were looking for, but some of them might be useful. When you get to their Q+A Board, search for 58800 thread or my post 58971.
