Snare BackLog Snare BackLog
The Snare BackLog is a program that provides a central collection facility for a variety of log sources, including Snare Agents for Windows, Solaris, AIX, Irix, ISA Server, IIS Server, Lotus Notes (and others), plus any device capable of sending data to a syslog server.

The Snare BackLog is the 'little brother' of the InterSect Alliance 'Snare Server' appliance. The Snare Server provides a robust collection, analysis, reporting and archival environment, using a web-based interface, and database-based storage. The Snare BackLog contains only the basic 'collection' component, with no analysis capabilities, but should be useful for many individuals, or small organisations.

Snare is currently used by hundreds of thousands of individuals, and organisations worldwide. Snare agents are used by many large Financial, Insurance, Healthcare, Defence, AeroSpace, and Intelligence organisations to meet elements of local and federal security requirements, such as:
  • ACSI 33
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • Sarbanes Oxley (SOX)
  • C2 / CAPP
  • DCID 6/3
  • DIAM 50-4
  • DDS-2600-5502-87 Chapter 4
  • NISPOM Chapter 8
  • California Senate Bill 1386
  • USA Patriot Act
  • Danish Standard DS-484:2005
  • British Standard BS7799

The SNARE BackLog is free software (freeware), released under the terms of the GNU Public Licence (GPL).
