There is an ongoing need and desire to utilize the security logs that are generated on Windows servers and desktops. The security logs can be used to help troubleshoot, track data access, log user access, and even for forensics. The long time issue with the Windows security logs (and all logs for that matter) is that the logs are stored on the computer where the action occurs. This causes a significant issue for even the smallest companies, as logs on hundreds of computers can be hard to access, manage, and organize. However, there are some tools, techniques, and options that allow every administrator, security professional, and auditor to gather information from one or many Windows computers remotely and efficiently.
