A remote SYSLOG server is another channel that you can use to report filter triggers. Remote Syslog sends filter alerts to a SYSLOG server on your network.
Note: Designating a remote system log server does not automatically send attack and shield notifications to that server. You must select the Remote System Log contact for action sets. After you apply these changes, active filters associated with the modified action set will send remote messages to the designated server.
