Please could someone give some advice on how to get the ASA-SSM-20 to log information to something like Kiwi Syslog services etc. We just need to get the alerts out of the IPS in order to build SMS/email functionality for alerting various response teams.
unfortantely, no syslog support
you can configure the rules to send snmp traps and you can pull events using SDEE, IPS Manager Express and Cisco MARS.
if you have logging enabled on the ASA a syslog msg will appear when the IPS is requesting or blocking traffic.
here is a link to the IPS configuration guides
