Compliance Reporter Overview

Compliance Reporter is a security monitoring tool exclusively for macOS. Using minimal resources, Compliance Reporter collects data security administrators can use to detect computer threats and streams the real-time logs to most security information and event management (SIEM), log collection, or data lake tools. Compliance Reporter filters and normalizes all macOS logs into a single format that any log analysis software can parse and search.
