SIEM and SOAR Solutions
What is a SIEM Solution?
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools effectively analyze and filter data to tell you who did what, when, and from where. SIEM aggregates large volumes of data from network devices, servers, workstations, and more. It identifies, records, monitors, and analyzes events within a real-time environment.
One of the significant advantages of SIEM is that it can detect if someone is trying to break in before they gain access to your data and automatically shut down access to the vulnerable area. The Security Operations Center (SOC) team then takes over to analyze the attack and provide remediation.
SIEM tools help organizations meet their compliance requirements by establishing ongoing proof that they are capturing and retaining log files.
Intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS) alone won’t protect you 100% from malware. A SIEM solution adds an additional layer of protection to your systems by doing the following:
- Stores data
- Analyzes data to detect patterns and suspicious activity
- Correlates data for the SOC team to evaluate
- Sends alerts to the SOC team when there are potential security issues
