What is Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)?

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) refers to a software-based method for monitoring IT security in companies. Compared to conventional approaches, the method is characterised by a holistic view of IT security issues. As a combination of the IT security methods Security Information Management (SIM) and Security Event Management (SEM), SIEM is an effective tool for identifying potential security risks, anomalies in networks and threatening trends in the IT architecture.

In practice, the holistic view of IT security is achieved by collecting event-based messages, events and log files from different components, applications and devices of the network. The data converge in a central system. This enables the user to evaluate information systematically and automatically and to detect dangers. To reliably determine patterns, trends and correlations, SIEM solutions use modern data analysis methods such as machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI).

With a functioning Security Information and Event Management, companies can:

  • Identify threats to IT security quickly and at an early stage.
  • Take appropriate measures against IT risks in good time.
  • Reliably fulfil internal compliance requirements and legal regulations.
  • Relieve IT workers in their daily work through the automated identification of vulnerabilities
  • Also fully verify events in connection with IT security at a later date.

We accompany you in the implementation of a powerful Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) and adapt the software of your choice specifically to your individual needs.

IT Security Management & Compliance Monitoring

In connection with holistic SIEM approaches, the terms IT security management and compliance monitoring also play an important role from the company’s point of view.

The term IT security management generally covers all measures to ensure IT security in the company. With a powerful IT security management system, the company can protect itself against internal as well as external cyber attacks and detect and avoid costly fraud activities at an early stage. When selecting a suitable software solution for IT security management, it is important to choose a variable technology that can be flexibly adapted to the company’s requirements.

In this context, compliance monitoring aims to ensure the conformity of the IT infrastructure with internal and external company requirements. By introducing quality assurance testing, companies can continuously check their business processes against regulatory and internal standards and guarantee high quality standards.

In order to meet the strict requirements of internal and external regulations, the use of powerful monitoring and analysis tools is a good idea. Splunk Enterprise makes it easy for your organisation to comply with security policies and automate threat identification in real time with easy-to-use features.
