Yes, by logging to a central database (you could also use the win32 front
end I wrote :) ).  I am not sure if you could use the SSL mysql option if
you are concerned about the data going across the wire.  I used Stunnel - it
allows you to set up to deamons and forward traffic between them.  I have
the snort sensor configured to send alerts to the localhost on a unused
port, this in turn forwards via a SSL tunnel to the database server, and
that deamon unwraps the "package" and send it to the localhost on the mysql

There is also the option to run some of the perl scripts available to grap
the alert file(s) every so often and merge them - then run snortsnarf to
create reports.  This is really only good if you only want to check the
remote sensors once or twice a day
