Re: Azure Logs


Sentinel, though not officially announced(as the certification process is not completed), should now be able to support Azure events with the latest Arcsight Azure smart connector release.
Currently, the documentation for Azure smart connector speaks only about Arcsight ESM as the SIEM solution that needs to be used, but it will work with Sentinel as an SIEM at the other end as well. So for capturing and forwarding Azure events, first download and deploy the Azure smart connector in your Azure environment (follow the documentation) and then configure this connector by giving the IP/Port details of Sentinel's (instead of Syslog NG smartconnector as mentioned in the doc) syslog server. But make sure that, the port should be publicly available or should be in the same VNET as the Azure connector. Once events reach the Sentinel syslog connector, a Universal CEF collector will be created automatically to parse the incoming events in CEF format. Events will then be forwarded to Sentinel server after parsing.

Except for mentioning Sentinel's syslog server as the destination IP/port, the rest of the configuration can be same as mentioned in the Azure connector doc. When you use this smart connector with Sentinel, the one thing you might need to keep in mind is the incoming load. Please check and make sure that your incoming load from Azure is not too high so that it will pull down the Sentinel server. For Arcsight ESM, we are recommending the usage of a load balancer to which the events first gets forwarded to, so that it can forward the events in a balanced manner to Arcsight ESM, in case of a high load. You should be able to use the same Arcsight load balancer for Sentinel if the load requirements are high, but at this point this is not tested and certified with Sentinel.

Please refer to the Arcsight Azure smart connector documentation for further details.
