The Niksun DSM for IBM® QRadar® records all relevant Niksun events by using the syslog protocol.

You can integrate NetDetector/NetVCR2005, version 3.2.1sp1_2 with QRadar. Before you configure QRadar to integrate with a Niksun device, you must configure a log source and then enable syslog forwarding on your Niksun appliance. For more information about configuring Niksun, see your Niksun appliance documentation.
