 Gartner provides a detailed definition of SIEM for the business customer. In fact, they examine SIEM via “the customer’s need to analyze event data in real-time for early detection of targeted attacks and data breaches, and to collect, store, investigate and report on log data for incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance. SIEM technology aggregates event data produced by security devices, network infrastructure, systems, and applications. The primary data source is log data, but SIEM technology can also process other forms of data, such as network telemetry.” 

“Event data is combined with contextual information about users, assets, threats, and vulnerabilities. The data may be normalized, so that events, data and contextual information from disparate sources can be analyzed for specific purposes, such as network security event monitoring, user activity monitoring, and compliance reporting. The technology provides real-time analysis of events for security monitoring, query, and long-range analytics for historical analysis.”

The vendors selected include ManageEngine ADAudit Plus, QRadar SIEM, LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform, LogPoint – SIEM, McAfee Enterprise Security Manager, InsightIDR, and Splunk Enterprise. Common points of praise among the selected vendors include data analysis speed of implementation and deployment, dashboarding, and UEBA capabilities.
