With many organizations pursuing a cloud-first strategy in the next few years, enhancing security is a critical priority. Moving to the cloud means having the ability to monitor infrastructure, applications, and data across multiple cloud environments. Legacy SIEMs cannot meet the requirements of distributed architectures across multiple clouds—but innovative next-generation SIEM solutions can. We’ll explain why Securonix customers say a next-generation SIEM is the best solution.

What is a next-generation SIEM?
Security information and event management (SIEM) supports threat detection and security incident response through the real-time collection and historical analysis of security events from various event and contextual data sources. (Gartner)
Today organizations manage massive and dynamic amounts of data in the cloud and on-premises. Organizations need to scale up or down, and relying on database storage doesn’t provide the scalability they require. Legacy SIEM often falls short in these requirements while also risking vendor lock-in.
Here’s where next-generation SIEM solutions come in. Next-Gen SIEM can manage terabytes of data in real time and adapt to sudden demand requirements. The open data model increases the availability of your data, and since it is cloud-based, it eliminates the need for costly proprietary hardware.

What to look for when choosing a next-generation SIEM
While next-generation SIEM offers clear advantages over traditional SIEM, there are certain aspects you need to consider when choosing the right next-generation SIEM solution.
It takes giving up a bit of control
A next-generation SIEM is cloud native by nature. The vendor ensures that the infrastructure and resources are highly available. However, these benefits mean you need to give up some control to take advantage of this improved availability, reliability, and security. Organizations that need to have more control over their data can use a “bring your own cloud” model, where they keep the data in their cloud storage.
Understand the regulations applicable to your industry
Any organization planning to migrate to a cloud-native SIEM should consider any applicable regulatory requirements and constraints. For instance, data privacy laws and data governance can require some modifications to your migration.
Check your bandwidth
Yes, your bandwidth is critical to your SIEM operation. Your next-generation SIEM requires enough bandwidth to gather and analyze massive amounts of data across your IT environment.
Evaluate whether your framework is compatible with your cloud
Your organization’s requirements will determine which cloud model you choose. You may choose a single, multi-cloud, or hybrid strategy. For instance, a hybrid cloud could be a better fit for organizations that require keeping some resources and data on-premises due to regulatory needs. In other cases, multi-cloud solutions are the answer.
