Manage Windows Security Event Logs
Currently we review event logs each day if we get time, this basically involves running a search for bad logon attempts against the admin accounts and looking for repeated (hundreds) attempts against other accounts to look for virus like activity. We then archive the logs in case we need to return to them.
How do you all manage your security event logs?
Anyone using third party software to analise logs and flag certain conditions?

We dont do this, but we do something similar from time to time. For that we simply use Microsoft's Log Parser tool Download details: Log Parser 2.2. This allows you to run SQL like queries against the event logs which may speed up your processing.
Hope that helps

I tried out Splunk for this... was pretty decent but new version is out now and should be a lot better
Splunk | IT Search for Log Management, Operations, Security and Compliance
