For most companies, desired outcomes circle around shrinking the attack surface, accurate threat detection, reducing dwell time and most importantly, addressing the current threat landscape.

Today’s security information and event management (SIEM) solutions are powerful tools that promise to make use of your endpoint, network, and system log data while empowering you with direct control to configure what constitutes a real in your unique environment. However, their success and efficacy depend on the thought and effort that goes into how they are configured, deployed, used and maintained.

  • Challenges of aligning SIEM with today’s security challenges
  • Difficulty of improving outputs to be accurate, actionable, and relevant
  • Underestimating total effort and cost required to meet objectives.
