The 6 Vendors in the Gartner Peer Insights for SIEM

Technology research giant Gartner announced the 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Software. The Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice selects solutions providers who attracted customer acclaim throughout the year.

According to the Gartner Peer Insights for SIEM, these solutions “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.”

In addition, SIEM collects and correlates security event data produced throughout the network; it can offer data normalization, event contextualization, and network monitoring.

Overall, Gartner named 6 vendors in their 2019 Peer Insights for SIEM:

  • Elastic
  • LogPoint
  • LogRhythm
  • ManageEngine
  • SolarWinds
  • Splunk

Gartner determined these 6 SIEM vendors with the feedback and ratings received from end-users who have purchased and deployed used the solutions. Also, the Peer Insights Customer Choice awards incorporate both the number of reviews and the overall user ratings in its methodology. However, Gartner itself does not directly condone any product or solutions provider.

Context for Peer Insights for SIEM

Previously, enterprises only utilized SIEM as a compliance reporting solution; indeed, it does offer out-of-the-box templates for regulatory mandates. However, in recent years cybersecurity transitioned from a prevention-based model to a detection-based model. No solution offers 100% effectiveness in preventing cyber attacks (although it can deflect a large percentage of them).

Instead, your enterprise must incorporate threat detection, threat intelligence, and improved network visibility into its cybersecurity policies. Fortunately, next-generation SIEM solutions provide these capabilities. Moreover, they also offer the ability to evaluate and correlate logged data from throughout your IT environment.
