Internet Information Services (IIS) is Microsoft’s extensible web server software for the Windows NT operating system. It provides a modular and extensible platform for hosting websites, services and applications.
Blumira integrates with Microsoft Windows operating systems to provide automated threat detection and actionable response for IIS. Blumira supports the following Microsoft Windows server operating systems:
Blumira provides broad coverage for Windows Server including collecting logs using NXLog, Command Line Logging, DNS Debugging and Winlogbeat.

You will need to first install and configure NXLog on the windows host using these instructions: https://www.blumira.com/integration/windows-server/
If you currently use IIS, you should run the following commands in an Administrative command prompt to enable logging:
wevtutil sl Microsoft-IIS-Configuration/Administrative /e:true wevtutil sl Microsoft-IIS-Configuration/Operational /e:true wevtutil sl Microsoft-IIS-Logging/Logs /e:true
If IIS is not installed you will get an error. That’s OK, it’s non-harmful if being used across a broad deployment.
Lastly, each IIS server will need its logging configuration changed in Log Event Destination to support the Event Log.
net stop nxlog && net start nxlog
NOTE: If you have more than one Site on your host, you will need to ensure that each Site is configured appropriately for Logging.
