Security Information and Event Management or SIEM is a hybrid of SIM (Security Information Management) and SEM (Security Event Management) technology that provides MSPs and organizations with real-time security monitoring from a centralized platform. Furthermore, SIEM aids in the tracking and logging of data that can be used for compliance and/or auditing if necessary.

SIEM provides visibility into an organization’s information security systems in real-time. It also manages event logs that consolidate data from multiple sources, it is the correlation of events gathered from various logs or security sources using if-then rules that add intelligence to raw data. Because of SIEM, security event notifications are sent automatically. Most SIEM systems include dashboards and other methods of direct notification for security issues.

Assume you work for a company that generates and processes a large amount of security data every day. All of this information must be routed through your network devices, servers, and domain controllers. Depending on the size of your company, that’s a lot of 1s and 0s to keep track of, and even more to understand.

Security alerts and incident reports aren’t the only benefits of having a managed SIEM service working for you. With so much data being collected and monitored in real-time, it is also much easier to stay in compliance with the various governing bodies that regulate a variety of industries.

As digital convergence and digital transformation gain traction, so does the need for better and more comprehensive security measures. Even organizations that are not necessarily technologically savvy recognize the plethora of risks and dangers for information security today, as cybercrime continues to rage and people are not adequately educated about security. Trillions of dollars have been lost as a result of direct cybercrime attacks as well as simple human error. Avoid that by talking to one of the experts in SIEM Technology. Contact us!
