SIEM systems have developed from simple log management to those that make use of sophisticated user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA). Today, SIEM platforms play a significant role in regulatory and compliance reporting for many enterprises and are a crucial component of comprehensive cybersecurity solutions.

SIEM Solutions improved and now:

  1. Use specially designed sensors to continuously gather digital forensics information across an enterprise.
  2. Utilize machine learning and artificial intelligence to spot unusual network activity that could point to malware or a data breach.

User and Entity Behavior Analytics

SIEMs have evolved to integrate User Behavior Analytics (UBA), also known as User and Entity Behavior Analytics, in addition to identifying abnormal network behavior (UEBA). When anomalous user or entity behavior happens, UBA/UEBA raises an alert. Given that 76% of all network breaches now include compromised credentials, this capability is crucial.

Security Orchestration Automation and Response

By gathering threat data from many sources, security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) assists enterprises in automating security activities, particularly incident response. It is also capable of handling minor issues without assistance from a person. An organization can define incident analysis and response processes using SOAR technologies and digital workflows.

Tips for Maximizing Your SIEM

As attacks become more complex and persistent, traditional security systems that just focus on defending the perimeter will continue to be replaced by solutions that also offer detection and response capabilities, particularly on the endpoint devices.
