SIEM Solution Services
What is SIEM solution?
SIEM stands for Security Information and Event Management, an approach to security where network activity data is collected from critical points in the network. Typical critical points are network endpoints, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems. The SIEM solution application forwards the collected data to a central event tracking console. There, IT professionals, with the help of automated filtering systems, review event logs, warnings, and alarms to defend against cyberattacks. More sophisticated SIEM products use artificial intelligence (AI) or advanced algorithms to make sense of the network activity and properly rank potential system deviations as threats. While SIEM systems have been around for some time, they have previously been used mostly by large organizations installed on on-site hardware and a monitoring console. The main barrier has been that the human intervention component of SIEM can be prohibitive in cost. 24/7 monitoring requires three shifts of IT professionals, usually at a dedicated console to monitor and review the warnings and alarms that come into the control center. With the rise of cloud-based computing and software-as-a-service (SaaS), IT service providers monitor SIEM systems for multiple clients on a per-seat basis from a remote location. This consolidation eliminates the physical hardware and large IT staff costs for a given organization. This new consolidation model permits a number of small and medium-sized organizations to afford the benefits of this powerful IT security tool.
