How to create an alert that monitors VPN solution use?



I'm looking to create an alert that looks for and triggers when certain VPN solutions, such as GoToMyPC, VNC, etc. are utilized within our environment.

Does anyone have experience with this? I wasn't able to find any similar existing posts. Thank you.

Hi @rcastello,

The answer is in the logs... what kind of logs are you collecting already and what applications logs are you fetching from your endpoint ?
You need to have a tool on your hosts to detect the applications that are being installed/used/removed then you can fetch the logs from there.



Do you have a tool (firewall, etc.) in place that can detect VPN use? If so, trigger the alert on events from that tool.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
