Y = Normalized | D = Out-of-the-Box Detections | V = Vendor-Specific Detections


Taegis™ XDR detectors are not guaranteed to be triggered, even if a data source's logs are normalized to a schema associated with a given detector. However, you can create Custom Alert Rules to generate alerts based on normalized data from a data source.

Logging Configuration Instructions

Linux servers must be configured to send logs — whether DNS, SSH, or sudo — via syslog to the Taegis™ XDR Collector.

Please refer to the vendor’s site for purchasing and configuration guidance.
