Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems are an established part of the information security toolbox and they’re still growing in popularity. In 2016, the SIEM market grew to approximately $1.73 billion, according to IT research and analysis firm Gartner. And though SIEM has seen some market-squeeze from newer, shinier big data security analytics solutions, the primary drivers for SIEM adoption that were in place years ago (threat management and compliance) are still in effect today.

But despite their enduring popularity and necessity, SIEM solutions remain a tough nut to crack. Choosing and evaluating SIEM solutions has never been easy, and the proliferation of new, competing technologies has only complicated the process.

At Solutions Review, we do our best to help by providing the best SIEM news and best practices, but we’re aware that busy IT professionals sometimes need a more easily digestible format. Enter the YouTube video.
