You have a lot of options on the market today. Everything from Cisco's CS-MARS, NetIQ (http://www.netiq.com/), LogRhythm (http://www.logrhythm.com/), Netcordia's Event Analysis (http://netcordia.com/products/netmri-event-analysis.asp) or you can simply build a Linux based syslog collector and use grep or Splunk.

Depending on your needs and budget, I would start with Gartner to find the top choices, then start contacting your reseller for demo's and trials. After you've test driven several, decide what works best for your organization, get it budgeted and implemented.
