What to Look for in a SIEM in 2020

Gartner recently published their 2020 Critical Capabilities for Security Information and Event Management report. In this report Gartner analysts defined and assessed 5 use cases and 9 SIEM capabilities across a highly complex vendor landscape. Securonix received the highest score in three out of five use cases: Basic Security Monitoring, Complex Security Monitoring, and Advanced Threat Detection and Response. Securonix also received the second highest score for Basic Searching and Reporting and third highest for the Compliance and Control Monitoring use case.


We believe that this validates our customer and partners investment in the Securonix Security Operations and Analytics Platform, our cloud-based SaaS SIEM solution. Integrating threat detection, incident investigation, and response has delivered dividends for security operations and insider threat teams at hundreds of our enterprise and midmarket customers.

We would encourage you to download a complimentary copy of the report. We believe this will assist you in making the well-informed SIEM evaluation, testing, and buying decision. Gartner has been at the front of security operations advisory, and the Gartner CARTA methodology is recognized as one of the best threat management and security posture improvement strategies.

  • The top five SIEM use cases as defined by Gartner, and their suitability for your organization’s needs.
  • The 9 product capabilities Gartner considers critical to SIEM solutions.
  • How different SIEM providers compare and rate across all use cases and critical capabilities.
