Deleting Logs

The Log Maintenance displays the number of log entries and how long Apex Central stores the logs for each log type. You can use the Log Maintenance screen to manually delete log entries by type.

  • Manually deleting log data may affect report generation.

  • Apex Central automatically deletes logs from Trend Micro servers after 90 days for new customers.


If you are an existing customer and previously changed the default Maximum Log Age, Apex Central retains logs on Trend Micro servers according to the previously configured setting.


Trend Micro recommends backing up Data Loss Prevention logs to your Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) server and keeping the logs for at least 2 years.

  2. Click Delete All in the corresponding row for the type of log entries you want to delete.
