The Case for Next-Generation SIEM

Legacy security information and event management (SIEM) solutions were designed during a time when the corporate IT environment was a closed system and security was focused on protecting the perimeter. These days corporations employ dynamic workforces who use multiple laptops and mobile devices to access data stored in hybrid datacenters and cloud applications from across the globe. This means that legacy SIEMs are ill-equipped to handle the rising volume and complexity of data.

With a legacy SIEM security analysts need to spend a lot of time manually switching between solutions and screens while hunting down threats, manually remediating breaches, and writing and tweaking the manual rules in order to find threats. Meanwhile, the supply of cybersecurity experts needed to understand this complex landscape has not been able to keep pace with growing demand.

Compared to a legacy SIEM, which struggles to meet today’s security challenges, a next-generation SIEM improves your security visibility, actionability, and posture, while reducing management and analyst burden.
