SIEM (Security Information Event Management)
What is SIEM?
SIEM (Security Information Event Management) is a software that combines all security events from device logs and centralizes that data into one source for security analysis, information, authentication events, audit events, etc.
We use various endpoint protection solutions, do I need a SIEM?
Many vendors offer endpoint security or endpoint
protection solutions that provide protection of computer networks . However, these endpoint solutions are not able to
correlate various events types across all devices. That is where SIEM is able to take those
correlated events and tie them together to alert on a potential high risk
Can I block attacks by using a SIEM solution?
SIEM solutions do not provide you with the ability to block attacks. They provide you with the information needed to identify when anomalous behavior is occurring on your network. Human analytics (SOC Services) are required to validate whether a breach has occurred. Without a SIEM solution to trigger the initial alert, the exploit will go unnoticed.
