SIEM remains one of the most neglected aspects of enterprise cybersecurity. Yet the capabilities of SIEM prove increasingly necessary to the modern cybersecurity paradigm. Where once threat prevention dominated the cybersecurity conversation, now detection takes precedence. The three categories of SIEM capabilities reflects this new digital reality.  

Here’s why that matters for your enterprise cybersecurity. 

Why the Key Capabilities of SIEM Matter

Previously, having a digital perimeter constituted all an enterprise needed to deflect and deter hackers. However, this strategy doesn’t match with reality in the modern digital age. Even with the strongest digital perimeter and preventative cybersecurity, something can eventually penetrate your network.

Moreover, as your enterprise scales, you could face significant challenges in your cybersecurity. Devices and network areas could turn into blind spots without sufficient monitoring. Hackers can use these as opportunities to slip past your security or plant a dwelling threat. Without proper monitoring, these threats can linger on the network for months if not years. Every moment they linger, they inflict more damage to your processes or data. 

This is where SIEM’s key capabilities come into play. However, we don’t want to spoil the video!
