Forwarding data to third-party systems

SPS can forward session data to Splunk, ArcSight, or other third-party systems that enable you to search, analyze, and visualize the forwarded data.

Using the Splunk forwarder

The Splunk forwarder can automatically send file-based data to Splunk. Using the Balabit Privileged Account Analytics, you can integrate this data with your other sources, and access all your data related to privileged user activities from a single interface.

Unlike the universal SIEM forwarder, the Splunk forwarder can forward data based on various criteria such as source or type of event, and, as a result, it is more resource-heavy.

Use the Splunk forwarder if you need to analyze or make changes to the data before you forward it, or you need to control where the data goes based on its contents. For more information, see Using the Splunk forwarder.

NOTE:

Since SPS version 5.11, the universal SIEM forwarder supports Splunk easier than in previous versions. If you want to integrate your SPS with Splunk, One Identity recommends using the universal SIEM forwarder instead of the Splunk forwarder (which will be deprecated as of SPS version 6.4).

Using the universal SIEM forwarder

The universal SIEM forwarder can automatically send data about the audited sessions to Splunk, ArcSight, or other third-party systems. The messages are standard syslog messages in RFC3164 format (also called legacy-syslog or BSD-syslog format). The body of the syslog message (the MESSAGE part) can be formatted as JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), Common Event Format (CEF), or JSON-CIM format. For information about the details of the messages that the universal SIEM forwarder sends to the external SIEM network elements, see Message format forwarded to SIEMs.

One of the main advantages of the universal SIEM forwarder is that it has a lower impact on network and performance.

Each message contains the minimal information relevant to the event. Use the built-in correlation feature of the SIEM to combine events by session ID and view all information in one place.

Use the universal SIEM forwarder if you need a less resource-heavy solution. For more information, see Using the universal SIEM forwarder.
