Many organizations lack the resources to deal with cyber threats that could cause downtime and reputational damage, or impact the ability to comply with regulations, such as GDPR and PCI DSS. SIEM monitoring offers visibility into your security estate, enabling log monitoring and analysis by cyber security experts 24/7 to detect security incidents and ensure compliance.
Security monitoring and detection of security incidents are no longer an option for organizations and companies, but a requirement based on business needs as well as compliance. Logs from infrastructure, services and applications are one of the most important areas to monitor, but also one of the most complex to implement and manage.
In many cases the complexities of log management and analysis have resulted in investments in systems that are not used efficiently, or where the investment has not been fully realized. When not done properly, this could lead to difficulties meeting security and compliance requirements, for example adhering to ISO 27000, SOC 2, PCI DSS or GDPR, as well as putting the business at risk of being breached without timely detection.
The solution – 24/7 SIEM monitoring managed by experts
Combining the right logs with relevant analysis queries, threat intelligence and experienced security analysts is an effective way of detecting and managing incidents.
In addition to incident detection, the same data can be used to compile reports for review and give live insights into the organization’s security posture to help meet compliance requirements.
