Are you sitting on piles of security-relevant data with little knowledge of how to turn that data into actionable intelligence?
Most security event information management systems (also known as SIEM) are legacy systems that are stuck in the past. Enterprises with these types of legacy systems are only able to collect, store, and analyze data. After all this work, many organizations discover that the underlying system being used is static, leaving major gaps between the correlation of information and managing security posture.
What is missing from this system is a simple way to convert this data into intelligence for solid decision making.
The missing piece to this puzzle is analytics-driven SIEM. This type of system will allow IT, teams, to correlate data across the board and monitor threats in real-time.
An analytics-driven SIEM brings to the table the following 6 essential capabilities:
#1…Ease of monitoring real-time threats and the ability to connect events in real-time to stop these threats.
#2…IT departments can respond quickly to a security breach, and by doing so, reduce the damage that could occur.
#3…It becomes easier for IT departments to monitor user activities and uncover misuse.
#4…Any kind of abnormal or suspicious activity can be immediately reported. This is known as threat intelligence.
#5…With huge volumes of data that IT must work on, analytics offers quick insights and automation of this analysis.
#6…Security management professionals will have special tools to detect, monitor, and analyze the threats.
SIEMs offer a good deal of potential, but legacy systems won’t be able to keep up with such changes. To ensure real-time access to minimize threats, an analytics-driven SIEM is necessary.
