    Hi All,

    We have received a requirement in our organization, Where we need to integrate few Linux bases servers with Qradar.
    One is application server and other is database server.

    Now I need to understand how can we accomplish this? Do we have any agent like win collect agent for Linux based systems?

    Please guide


    Regards

    Hello Asif.

    There are a few ways, but suggest look at implementing a disconnected log collector (DLC).

    Other posts on this in the forum if you do a search for DLC.

    Regards,

    Hello Asif,

     

    Generally the easiest way to integrate Linux servers is to configure the syslog.conf file to send the syslog messages to either an Event Collector or directly to the Event Processor.  No agent is required for Linux based systems.

     

    Kind regards,

    Hi! As alternative way i may recommend wazuh solution (https://wazuh.com/) for monitoring non Windows hosts. it is quite functional and flexible solution for more deeply monitoring linux/MacOS systems and solutions, which runs on its OS. Free and opensource. Wazuh manager collect and send alerts to QRadar. For alerts used wazuh build-in rules (you can make rules yourself). Its a fork of OSSEC (https://www.ossec.net/).
