Security Incident & Event Management

Security Incident & Event Management is not a “one and done” event.

Security Incident & Event Management

SIEM stands for security information and event management and provides organizations with next-generation detection, analytics and response. SIEM software combines security information management (SIM) and security event management (SEM) to provide real-time analysis of security alerts generated by applications and network hardware. SIEM software matches events against rules and analytics engines and indexes them for sub-second search to detect and analyze advanced threats using globally gathered intelligence. This gives security teams both insight into and a track record of the activities within their IT environment by providing data analysis, event correlation, aggregation, reporting and log management.

SIEM software can have a number of features and benefits, including:

  • Consolidation of multiple data points
  • Custom dashboards and alert workflow management
  • Integration with other products

The Role of SIEM in Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is a multidimensional field and it is something that cannot be covered under a single security solution umbrella. Therefore, organizations deploy a wide range of different tools and techniques to accomplish their cybersecurity goals in a more effective and efficient way. One such tool is SIEM – Security Information and Event Management. By combining Security Information Management and Security Event Management capabilities in a single solution, SIEM can help security analysts working in a Security Operation Center (SOC) to achieve threat detection, response, security incident reporting, and compliance ability. In addition, a SIEM includes interpretation of logs, profiling, security alerts, data aggregation, advanced analytics, forensics, dashboards, and Threat Intelligence Feeds. These are some incredible features that help in achieving cybersecurity endeavors at large extent and give your company’s Board of Directors peace of mind.

Our SIEM plan includes the following:

  • Advanced architecture designed to cover complex regulatory compliance, business continuity and risk management needs.
  • Real-time attack visualization identifies zero-day attacks based on rules-based, vulnerability, statistical, and historical correlations.
  • Vulnerability correlation integrates data from detection systems, eliminating false positives and freeing up our team to focus on actual threats.
  • Unparalleled visibility in distributed networks to correlate activity in individual environments, identifying hidden threats, suspicious trends and other potentially dangerous behavior.
  • Sophisticated reporting tools for ISO, PCI, HIPAA, SOX and other compliance standards.

Is SIEM the right security solution for any business?

SIEM technology is designed for businesses of all sizes and across all industries. If a mid-sized retailer wants to protect its critical data against insider threats, for example, SIEM technology can help this business do just that. Or, if a globally recognized bank requires a user-friendly compliance management tool, it can deploy SIEM technology as part of its efforts to meet industry mandates. SIEM tools can even help businesses protect their Internet of Things (IoT) devices against cyber attacks, proactively seek out cyber threats and much more.
