Comparing the Top SIEM Vendors — Solutions Review

comparing the top SIEM vendors

Do you remember when cybersecurity prioritized prevention above everything else? When,  with the right solution, malware could be stopped at the door to your enterprises’ network and that was the end of your worries? Indeed, when malware was the worst thing that could happen to your network?

We do too. We miss those days. But they’re gone now.

Now, cybersecurity experts and enterprise leaders alike are facing the harsh reality—no solution can prevent 100% of digital threats, especially as they evolve to evade typical firewall recognition and prevention methods. The cybersecurity paradigm is responding by shifting to a detection-focused model, focused on finding threats quickly after they have penetrated your IT environment and removing them just as promptly before real damage can be done.  

At the same time compiling, logging, and analyzing all of the data on security events from throughout your enterprise’s vast network can be more than just a simple hassle. It can prove an overwhelming challenge as your IT security team searches through the digital piles looking for the correlations that indicate a threat—unsure if they have collected all of the data necessary to know if your databases have been compromised.

That’s where Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) comes into play. It can collect, compile, analyze, and synthesize your enterprise’s security events, looking for evidence of a threat automatically, and allowing your team to prioritize hunting for legitimate threats.
