How to connect CISCO switches logs to Sentinel

New Contributor

I have a customer who requires collecting logs from above devices, firewalls and Windows, Linux servers. I'm ok with later components but couldn't figure out a way to collect logs from switches. Do we go with Linux syslog and collect the logs from cisco devices and forward to Sentinel? If that the case how to query them?

@Susantha Silva I am not that familiar with the Cisco naming, but have you looked at the connectors grand list to see if the product is listed there?

@GaryA thank you for the quick response. CISCO connectors available in the Sentinel talk about CISCO firewalls and above. Anyway I found out best option is to setup Linux syslog server and forward switches logs to that and forward to Sentinel. But I still didn't see much documentation about these process and how to query data out of Sentinel. Let me see further since I'm also exploring Sentinel at this stage.
