Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) software provides real-time analysis of security threats to your infrastructure. Our experts can configure these systems to maximize visibility inside your networks and hosts while preserving your existing technology investments.
What is SIEM Engineering?
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) software provides real-time evaluation of security threats in your infrastructure. SIEM Engineering is the setup, configuration and tuning of these systems. They require constant maintenance to ensure they provide usable information through alerts, dashboards and rules. A skilled SIEM Engineer can provide all of these services.
Security Information Event Management (SIEM)
Here are a few things SIEM tracks:
Monitor events and display activity in real-time.
Translate event data from various sources.
Cross-correlate data to discern threats from false positives.
Send alerts and generate reports.
Here are a few reasons why data should be sent to a SIEM:
All logs can be made accessible through a common interface.
Users can access powerful reporting tools.
Alerts can be sent when a suspicious event occurs.
Related events on multiples systems can be detected at the same time.
Events sent to the SIEM are stored securely even if data is accidentally or intentionally erased on the host.
How can SIEM be leveraged for your organization?
Tracking events in a SIEM has many benefits. They’re used by large companies and government entities for the purpose of tracking possible data breaches, insider threats and many other attacks.
Here are a few components of the SIEM:
Data aggregation. Pulls data from many sources including network, security, servers, databases, and applications.
Correlation. Looks at all angles and assesses events for related tactics.
Alerting. Automated alerts for possible breaches.
Dashboards. A holistic view of events with charts and graphs.
Compliance. Reports can be created to satisfy various industry regulations or standards.
Retention. Stores log data over long periods of time so it can be reviewed later.
Forensic Analysis. Logs are an exact copy of the originals and include timestamps. The SIEM can be configured to keep a copy of raw logs if necessary.
Why is SIEM Engineering important to you?
Real-time updates about incoming security breaches help mitigated them. SIEM deployments are complex due to the many devices they connect to and sophisticated tuning required. They require qualified engineers behind their configurations.
