What Is SIEM?
SIEM is a cybersecurity technology that provides SOCs with incident data for cyber threat monitoring and response. SIEM combines Security Event Management (SEM) from event data analysis with Security Information Management (SIM), which collects and analyzes log data.
SIEM solutions centralize and correlate logs and other security data from endpoints across a network for analysis; some SIEM solutions are capable of machine learning and behavioral analytics to identify suspicious network traffic, compile contextual reports, and to sandbox or quarantine endpoints when suspicious activity is detected. But the primary function of most SIEM products is to generate and send alerts to SOC teams about security incidents at the application and network hardware levels, requiring security personnel to investigate and remediate, if necessary.
The Difference Between XDR and SIEM
What’s Better: XDR or SIEM?
The global shift to remote work arrangements has increased cybersecurity risks beyond experts’ initial estimates. To address the growing number and severity of cyberthreats, CISOs and security analysts must look beyond traditional EDR solutions and start thinking in terms of XDR. Although securing endpoints is critical for protecting the environment, today's workplace demands holistic solutions that include network telemetry, behavioral analysis and continuous authentication.
