Monitor Apache logs to gain complete visibility into web activity with Panther’s Apache integration.
Apache access logs store information about events that occurred on your Apache web server. Panther can collect, normalize, and monitor Apache logs to help you identify suspicious activity in real time. Your normalized data is then retained to power future security investigations in a serverless data lake powered by AWS or the cloud-native data platform, Snowflake.
Use Panther’s built in rules to monitor activity, or write your own detections in Python to fit your internal business use cases.
Common security use cases for Apache with Panther include:
- Monitor access to sensitive web application endpoints
- Investigate and trace visitor and customer activity
- Identify SQL injection or other attempted exploits
How it Works
The integration is simple and fast:
- Send your Apache Logs to S3 with a log forwarding agent like Fluentd or Logstash
- Add your S3 Bucket as a data source in Panther
- Panther will parse, normalize, and analyze your log data in real-time
- As rules are triggered, alerts are sent to your configured destinations
- Normalized logs can be searched from Panther’s Data Explorer (Enterprise only)
- Sit back and monitor your activity!
