SIEM stands for Security Information and Event Management and these solutions have been around since 2000. They were developed with the goal of helping organizations in the early detection of targeted attacks and data breaches. But SIEMs have struggled to keep pace with the security needs of modern enterprises, especially as the volume, variety and velocity of data has grown. As well, SIEMs have struggled to keep pace with the sophistication of modern day threats. Malware 15 years ago was static and predictable. But today’s threats are stealthy, and polymorphic. “Often times when presenting at conferences, people will ask “Is SIEM Dead”? Such a great question! Has the technology reached its end of life? Has SIEM really crashed and burned? I think the answer to that question is NO. SIEM is not dead, it has just evolved. Please read the attached white paper from Sumo Logic to learn how the SIEM market has evolved from threat management to security analytics.
Digital enterprises are migrating mission-critical workloads to the cloud and leveraging advanced AWS infrastructure to reap the benefits of agile development and competitive advantage. There’s never been a greater need than now to have real-time visibility to ensure robust and consistent cloud security. Detecting, investigating and responding to threats in AWS and hybrid environments is crucial for all parties involved.
In today’s increasingly connected world, corporate security operations centers (SOCs) are more important than ever. SOC teams are on the front line of protecting the company operations and confidential data from the myriad of rapidly evolving cyber threats organizations face everyday. SOC teams are tasked with more responsibility than ever before. As a result, they are drowning in systems that don’t provide enough information or context to empower analysts to make informed decisions. As a result, SOC teams are spending too much time on analysis and validation and not enough time on problem solving.
