Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

What is security information and event management (SIEM)?

SIEM Security

SIEM is security information and event management. It is defined as a group of complex technologies that together, provide a centralized bird’s-eye-view into an infrastructure. This software solution normalizes, filters, correlates, assembles, and centrally manages other operational events to monitor, alert on, respond to, analyze, audit, and manage security and compliance information.

It bridges the gap between network security and cloud security which can also enhance your overall corporate security by bringing specialist security teams together with a ‘one-view’ report.

What is SIEM security?

Security information and event management (SIEM) software products and services combine security information management (SIM) and security event management (SEM). They provide real-time analysis of security alerts generated by applications and network hardware, and historical analysis of security events from a wide variety of event and contextual data sources. Think of it as your security forensics team!

Meet Compliance Obligations

  1. Compliance with regulatory obligations is often a significant factor in the deployment of a SIEM. Regulatory compliance needs such as within the finance and health care sector, can help with monitoring mandates as well as documenting compliance to auditors for example.
  2. Gaining and maintaining certifications critical for your business success (such as ISO 27000, ISO 27001, ISO27002 and ISO 27003)
  3. Policy enforcement validation and policy violations detections.

Enhanced network security and improve IT Security Operations

As the boundaries of network security expand, so too must the role and scope of network security. SIEM can help your organisation with:

  1. Continuous monitoring and incident response
  2. Case management or ticketing systems

Log Management and Retention

A failed audit could have catastrophic results of loss of business and employees, in addition to hefty fines.
