Snare for Windows Snare Agent for Windows
Snare for Windows is a Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 2008, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 2012 compatible service that interacts with the underlying Windows Eventlog subsystem to facilitate remote, real-time transfer of event log information.

Event logs from the Security, Application and System logs, as well as the new DNS, File Replication Service, and Active Directory logs are supported. The supported version of the agent also accommodates custom Windows event logs.
