With organizations opening their networks to embrace new digital business models, they are experiencing an exponential rise in the number of cyberattacks that they face every day. There are many illegal ways of accessing business and network information which can compromise your data integrity, intellectual property, and critical business assets. Proper collection and correlation of log and event data is imperative for effective cybersecurity. However, with the threat landscape evolving at an unprecedented rate, reviewing and extracting actionable intelligence from security event logs has become one of the most time-consuming tasks. This is where SIEM comes in.
Leverage SIEM’s capabilities to mitigate risks
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is an approach to security management that combines SIM (Security Information Management) and SEM (Security Event Management) functions into one security management system. SIEM is a proven and systematic approach to centralize log monitoring and observe unwanted behaviors and events across your organization. They aggregate data from multiple systems and analyze that data to catch abnormal behavior or potential cyberattacks.
Why is SIEM Important?
The reason an organization needs a SIEM solution to monitor the systems and report suspicious activities is that the amount of data an average organization generates nowadays is too much to handle manually. The following are three of the main reasons why organizations need a SIEM solution:
An SIEM solution detects incidents that otherwise can go unnoticed. This technology analyzes the log entries to detect indicators of malicious activity. Moreover, since it gathers events from all sources across the network, the system can reconstruct the attack timeline to help determine its nature and impact. The platform communicates recommendations to security controls –for example, directing a firewall to block the malicious content.
Compliance with Regulations
Organizations use SIEM to adhere to compliance requirements by generating reports that address all logged security events among these sources. Without a SIEM, an organization need to manually retrieve log data and compile the reports.
SIEM improves incident management by allowing the security team to identify an attack’s route across the network, identifying the compromised sources and providing the automated mechanisms to stop the attacks in progress.
Benefits of using SIEM
SIEM solutions provide a holistic view of what is happening on a network in real-time and help IT teams to be more proactive in the fight against security threats. The main reason behind using SIEM as a Service by the organization is that SIEM easily detects suspicious activity, unknown login, and many other threats that are difficult to detect manually.
In the recent years, SIEM has evolved to include advanced analytics such as user behavior analytics (UBA), network flow insights and artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate detection as well as integrate seamlessly with security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) platforms for incident response and remediation.
