You Need a Comprehensive SIEM Solution

System management today is far more complex than in times past. What used to be simple up/down monitoring is now a comprehensive view of availability, performance, security, compliance, change control, alerting, and reporting. System management used to be a view of individual devices. Today, system management requires advanced correlation of systems and events, creating a single holistic view that can enable proactive response rather than traditional reactive response. Security information and event management (SIEM) tools entered the market to address this need for a broader and deeper view of an organization’s systems. SIEM’s are now widely used by many organizations to ensure that the systems, applications, and data an organization relies upon are always available, performing well, and are secure.

Without a holistic view, organizations are left managing multiple individual systems – responding reactively to performance, availability, or security issues. IT personnel are notified of problems by end users attempting to use the system or after systems are already compromised. Downtime and disruption of critical systems occur. Attempted and successful intrusions go unnoticed. Put simply, a comprehensive SIEM solution is an absolute requirement to detect and proactively address system and security issues.

Traditional SIEM Solutions are Expensive and Complicated

 

SIEM platforms are expensive. The software licensing is only one aspect of the cost. The equipment needed to host the software is expensive. The integration of the software takes time and specialized IT personnel. IT personnel need new skills to manage and run the day to day operations of the SIEM. This takes additional training of existing staff or new IT staff to manage. IT folks already constitute some of the highest-paid employees in a company and when they learn new valuable skills, they often leave for “greener pastures” leaving you with the burden of hiring someone more expensive or training someone again. IT personnel turnover results in disruption of service, valuable system knowledge leaving the company, and additional expense rehiring and retraining new people.

SIEM platforms also require constant tuning and maintenance for effective performance. System updates, new device detection and onboarding, rule configuration and tuning, and alert confirmation are ever-changing, time-consuming tasks. Many organizations fail to budget for and implement these processes and required personnel, which inevitably leads to a poorly performing implementation with missing devices and failure to detect issues.

In addition, some of the most common challenges with SIEM platforms are false positives and false negatives. These cause missed alerts and notification “overload” that cause a lack of confidence in the system or outright ignoring the system’s notifications. Addressing false positives and negatives requires specialized staff and constant tuning. Again, most organizations do not plan for this and do not want to dedicate expensive IT resources just to maintain a monitoring system.

Optional SOC-as-a-Service

 

If you have your own fully staffed Security Operations Center (SOC), great! We can integrate our SIEM-as-a-Service into your existing team. Most of our clients, however, don’t have the resources to build a Security Operations Center (SOC) to analyze and escalate security incidents. StratoZen offers outsourced SOC options that can be added to our SIEM-as-a-Service or (Co) Managed SIEM offerings.
