Cisco Meraki

The Cisco Meraki device includes wireless, switches, security, EMM (enterprise mobility management), communications, and security cameras, all centrally managed from the web. Cisco Meraki can produce DHCP, firewall, VPN, and web proxy logs. All of these log types are supported in InsightIDR.

Before You Begin

Cisco Meraki products support the standard RFC 5424 syslog implementation, meaning that syslog messages will be sent unencrypted.

You can configure Meraki to store syslog messages on a server by following the directions here: https://documentation.meraki.com/zGeneral_Administration/Monitoring_and_Reporting/Syslog_Server_Overview_and_Configuration.
