SIEM – Cloud Security

Security Information and Event Management

The future of cloud-based security solutions is on the rise, however, not every business is taking advantage. It is estimated that by 2019 the cost of cybercrime will soar to $2 trillion.

Vulnerabilities transcend industry and organization size, and everyone is susceptible to breaches. While there are still many on-premises security solutions, most are moving to the cloud, or into a hybrid cloud security environment. Security information and event management or SIEM technology supports threat detection and security incident response via real-time collection and analysis.

SIEM Features & Capabilities:

  • Log management: Data collection from many sources including network, servers, databases, applications, have the ability to be consolidated in order to miss critical incidents. Essentially giving you the opportunity to MANAGE EVERYTHING!
  • Correlation: Data is turned into useful information via a variety of correlation techniques that search for common attributes.
  • Alerts: Automated analysis of correlated events and creation of alerts notify users of immediate issues. Alerts can be sent to a dashboard or sent through a third party, such as email.
  • Dashboards: Event data can be turned into informational graphs/charts to help with seeing patterns or identify activity that is not forming a standard pattern.
  • Compliance: Applications can be configured to automate the gathering of compliance data, creating reports that adapt to existing security and auditing processes.
  • Retention: Long-term data retention necessary for compliance requirements.
  • Forensic analysis: The ability to search across data logs throughout different time periods, based on specific criteria.
