As you may already know, SIEM stands for Security Information and Event Management. This is a system that detects, prevents and resolves all cyberattacks. It also centralizes all the security events from every device within a network. SIEMs gather raw security data from companies’ firewalls, wireless access points, servers and personal devices. However, SIEMs do more than just log events. They are also customizable to the point where they can also detect suspicious activity and recognize actual threats.
With the endless cybersecurity customization options, there are various reasons as to why your company needs to invest in custom SIEM services, and in this blog, we’re going to go over the main benefits.
Threats to Consider
Cyberattacks today are more advanced than ever before. Traditional preventative tactics like using firewalls and antivirus software just don’t do the trick anymore. Another thing to note is that attacks today can come from inside your network. This means edge devices blocking incoming attacks from the cloud aren’t going to be able to take care of everything.
While malware used to be something that you could leave to intrusion detection and prevention systems alone, they won’t be able to detect malware which is now attached to emails, banner ads and pseudo websites. A custom SIEM is able to detect and prevent this kind of malware, which is why they are so essential. Custom SIEM solutions are also able to aggregate data from across an entire network and analyze this data together to limit the number of false positives.
