 Proficio: SIEM to the Rescue!

Top 10 SIEM Consulting/Services Companies - 2019

With an ever-increasing number of enterprises and the corresponding rise in data and edge computing devices, the global cybersecurity industry is forecast to see an 8.7 per cent rise in the current year. This upsurge in the cybersecurity market makes it an uphill task to keep pace with the rising malware attacks and cybercrimes globally. In such a scenario, security information and event management (SIEM) plays a pivotal role in advanced threat detection and monitoring. They can analyze the threats, deliver insights and provide the response necessary to combat the cause. In tandem with the technological evolution, modern SIEM service providers have become a necessity in the delivery of complex strategies that can implement these technologies. Along with threat management and general monitoring in SIEM, targeted attack detection is likely to be a major component in the coming days. SIEM consultants need to be able to combine on-premises and cloud deployments to create a cloud-based SIEM solution that scales and secures user journey to the cloud, providing deep insight into the security ecosystem and applications. The challenge with leveraging massive amounts of information is that it comes in an array of unpredictable formats, but with the advanced SIEM, it is possible to obtain real-time insights into this high volume of data, with a greater capacity to extract, store and analyze. However, SIEM solutions have limitations that make them ineffective without the right support and third-party solutions. Unlike a Firewall Security or IDS, a SIEM does not monitor security events but uses log data stored by them. It is therefore essential not to neglect the implementation of these solutions. And as a complex product that requires support to ensure successful integration with the company’s security controls and the many hosts in its infrastructure.

In addition, to work properly, SIEM solutions require 24/7 monitoring of alerts and logs. Trained staff or a dedicated team is required to view news, conduct regular reviews and extract relevant reports. Many businesses assume that installing SIEM is quite easy but in reality, they do not realize that SIEM will require setting a specially trained and skilled staff to get most out of the SIEM data and respond to its reports. And thus staffing budget goes higher than expected which is another SIEM problems. It is important to not just install a SIEM with the manufacturer and/or default configurations, as they are often insufficient. Configurations must be customized and tailored to the users’ needs. Likewise, for the reports, it is better to create your own analysis reports, adapted to the different identified threats. Otherwise, there is a real risk that you will not be able to enjoy the benefits of a SIEM solution. To help business providers in selecting promising SIEM service providers, a distinguished panel of prominent marketing specialists and analysts, along with Enterprise Security Magazine’s editorial board has assessed and shortlisted the start-up companies offering pioneering technology services in the SIEM industry. This listing gives a comprehensive understanding of services that can be implemented to optimize your business process. We present to you Top 10 SIEM Consulting/Services Companies 2019.
