Microsoft's Audit Collection Services (ACS) is coming soon to simplify collection and management of Security logs throughout your organization.

Microsoft will soon release Audit Collection Services (ACS), a tool for pulling Security logs from Windows servers to a centralized location to simplify security auditing and log analysis. ACS will use an agent-based architecture and will collect logs into a SQL Server database. There's no date yet for when this product will be released, but you can find mention of it in this security chat on Microsoft's website so it will likely be soon.
