Critical Factors You Should Consider Before Purchasing or Changing Your SIEM Solution

More than half of our clients have come from failed self-deployed SIEM attempts.  In each case, they underestimated the time, effort, and expertise needed to run an in-house SIEM.  Each were told by the vendor that their solution would be simple and easy to deploy with little to no additional impact on their technical staff.

The fact is, security information and event management (SIEM) systems are complicated.  They do take specialized technical knowledge to deploy and maintain.  This effort should not be underestimated because getting this wrong will create tons of work for your security and IT teams as well as cost your organization hundreds of thousands of dollars more each year.

Many organizations would save a ton of time and money by following some expert advice as it relates to SIEM technologies. To help, StratoZen created this white paper discussing the critical topics of any security information and event management evaluation.
