Safety of Downloads

Signed Files

We digitally sign all executable files distributed as part of EZ5 Systems' products with our digital certificate. You can verify the certificate to ensure the authenticity and integrity of the installed syslog server.

SHA Checksums

We also provide SHA checksums for the Syslog Watcher installers. You can use the Get-FileHash utility built into Microsoft Windows PowerShell to verify the genuineness and integrity of the syslog server's installer.

Checked Regularly

We always use set of scanners (VirusTotal) to check Syslog Watcher before publishing a new version. The constant security check confirms that our syslog server is safe and has no malicious code.
