Choosing the Right SIEM Solution
Since its inception, SIEM (security information and event management) has been something for the well-to-do IT Department. The one that can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a capital acquisition of the technology, for one. Then, on top of that, afford the luxury of qualified staff to use it in the intended manner. In some cases, they hire experts from the SIEM vendor to “man the barricades.”
In the real world of a typical IT Department in the medium-size organization or small business space, this is a ride in fantasy land. Budgets simply do not allow capital expenditures of multiple five- or six-figures, plus the in-house staff or outside expertise to support properly.
In the meantime, the security and compliance pressures continue to mount. PCI DSS compliance in particular, but also HIPAA, NIST, and others continue to drive to smaller organizations.
How do we square this circle in which budgets are tight and IT Security expertise is rare?
The answer lies within delivering value as a service: powering and simplifying the implementation, while offering a co-managed approach.
Even the largest companies in the world are struggling with overwhelmed, under-staffed IT security teams, incapable of investigating the volume of alerts generated on a daily basis. That’s why so many are turning to co-managed SIEM solutions.
