How SIEM can help you ?
The SIEM gives you a holistic, unified view into not only your infrastructure but also workflow, compliance and log management. A SIEM can provide a multitude of capabilities and services efficiently.
At its core, a SIEM provides:
This may come in many forms, especially with in-house applications.This is usually in the form of dashboards or “views,” referred to as a bird’s-eye view.a two-part function. This includes translating computerized jargon to readable data to be displayed, and mapping data to user- or vendor-defined classifications/characterizations. This is sometimes referred to as “field mapping.”
This essentially gives the data context and forms relationships based on rules, architecture and alerts. This should be either historical or real-time.This may be used to not only show value to executives but also provide automated verification of continuous monitoring, trends and auditing. Some would argue that the auditing aspect is an essential function but the SIEM alone does nothing – like a retired general with no troops or a SQL instance with no tables or data.Allowing the capability for storing event and logs into a central location, while also allowing the application of compliance storage or retention requirements. (Again, many would argue this is a separate function, and I would disagree.)
