SIEM is NOT dead, SIEM means never having to say 'sorry'

SIEM is NOT dead, SIEM means never having to say 'sorry'. HP has been leading the market, technology, and industry for as long as SIEM has existed. We have been recognized by Gartner in the leaders quadrant every year. In fact, we have been leaders for more years than anyone has been in the MQ consistently.


SIEM started the big data security analytics wave back in 2007 when ArcSight introduced CORRe engine. A database that lets you store and analyze unlimited volume of data in real-time. sounds familiar? There are many me-too products that thinks that SIEM is dead and their technology is next best think to sliced bread. Let us show you what SIEM does and how customers are using it for more than 50 use cases in the market.


Let's look at the top 10 use cases of SIEM (Security information and event management)


#10: Security analytics through visualization of threats and risk score




#9: Detecting and protecting your enterprise against Zero-day attacks




#8: Monitor and prevent insider threats like Edward Snowden




#7: Detect early on and prevent active attacks in real-time such as malware, bots, DDos, virtus, or distributed attacks




#6: Network and infrastructure security analytics




#5: Application security logging, analytics, and transaction monitoring














#4: Continuous monitoring for compliance analytics and cost-effective audit reports



#3: Universal log collection, storage, analysis, and management from web, security devices, apps, or devices

How it will give attack vector when it is analyzing only logs? Very basic question- How i will have the entire attack vector in a single window? How you will know the attcak behavior? 


In the real time environment- we should be able to find the attcak before its going to effect the environment. 


What do you think if someone stealing information? Is it not a threat? We know we have all the best technologies to prevent and monitor. Still can you able to bring all that data to a single dashboard and analyze?


That is where industry is saying SIEM is DEAD. Security is not a static..Implement rules and sleep...Its continuous and stuational base.


SIEM space is slowly moving towards situational awareness. SIEM shouldnt be always reactive and sometime proactive until you have logs. Logs only solve security 360 degrees?
