Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

Security Information and Event Management Services

Many organizations struggle with the challenge of monitoring the security state of their systems. They try to manually review logs and events, but regularly find they can’t keep up. They then turn to automated Security Information and Event Management tools to simplify collection, alerting and analysis of log data so that they can quickly respond to high-risk security events; this is not without its own challenges such as alarm fatigue and risk analysis.

SystemExperts has extensive experience in assisting clients to design, deploy, and operate SIEM solutions. The benefits our clients realize include:

  • Alerting on critical security events that were being missed
  • Understanding actual traffic and usage patterns that were previously unknown allowing optimization of the network
  • Improving system and network configuration procedures and configurations by identifying systems that were non-compliant and investigating the root cause
  • Streamlining the process for investigating security incidents
  • Resolving audit/compliance deficiencies regarding log monitoring
