SIEM security reporting

Protecting your network against today’s rapidly evolving threat landscape requires broad and complete visibility across the entire IT environment.  Evidence of what has occurred on your network and when this has occurred exists hidden within log and machine data.  SecureINTEL (our SIEM solution) has been designed to extract this data, to analyse it, and to present it in meaningful report formats. These reports then provide detailed insight into threats and risks on your network – threats which you would otherwise would not have been unaware.

Advantages of SIEM Security

  • Enabling baseline network behaviour to immediately pinpoint abnormal activity
  • Detecting unauthorised or suspicious applications
  • Assisting with network forensic investigations performing full packet capture
  • Preventing sensitive data loss
  • Shutting down suspicious activity as it is detected
  • Monitoring changes to files and directory structures, who made the change, when and what

 

Managed SIEM security no longer needs to be complicated and expensive. With SecureINTEL you can take the stress and cost out of implementing SIEM while still having all the same benefits.

What are SIEM Systems?

A SIEM system consists of software products and security services. It combines security information management (SIM) with security event management (SEM) to deliver analysis of security alerts triggered by hardware and software… in real time. SIEM products are used to log security information and produce compliance-focused reports.

SIEM security systems work by collating log files and security data for assessment by IT administrators. This data is collected from multiple security devices including servers, routers & switches, desktops and laptops and other connected devices.

The term “SIEM” was created by two Gartner employees in 2005.

Typically, an SIEM administrator starts by creating a profile of the environment’s regular operational conditions, so the SIEM system can then detect any differences to that state. The key capabilities of SIEM services include:

  1. Alerting – Automatically notifying specified users of security events
  2. Dashboards – Event information is converted into meaningful charts  to identify trends or patterns
  3. Data aggregation – Monitored data (network, servers, security, software and databases) is merged to prevent important events from being overlooked
  4. Forensic analysis – Saves hours of effort by allowing the user to execute searches across logs on different time periods and nodes, within set parameters
  5. Retention – Provides long-term data storage of event data
  6. Correlation – Identifies similarities between events and combines them into relevant groups
  7. Compliance – Compliance data can be gathered automatically for the production of various reports (e.g. auditing, government regulations)

SIEM managed security service providers are often a cost-effective, less complex solution for businesses who seek the benefits of SIEM but do not have the internal resources available to implement the solution on their own.

Two of the biggest challenges of SIEM systems is the associated cost and technical skillset required to setup and manage. These costs and complexities are also why more organisations are seeking the support and expertise of managed security service providers like Seccom Global.
