Symantec SGS

The JSA DSM for Symantec Gateway Security (SGS) Appliance collects events from a Symantec Gateway Security (SGS) device|appliance|service.

JSA records all relevant events from SGS. Before you configure JSA to integrate with an SGS, you must configure syslog within your SGS appliance. For more information on Symantec SGS, see your vendor documentation.

After you configure syslog to forward events to JSA, the configuration is complete. Events forward from Symantec SGS to JSA using syslog are automatically discovered.
