Benefits of SIEM systems

By Hendrik Jansen  - January 14, 2019

TechTarget wrote a great article on the benefits of SIEM systems.

We have been integrating and working with different SIEM systems for many years. Our agileSI™ technology delivers data (log and other extracted relevant security and compliancy data) from SAP® systems to these SIEM systems.

This SIEM market is a big market in itself, it represents an estimated market value of 4.5 billion $ globally in 2019. It even keeps growing at higher than average rates in the industry.

Gartner recently published its 2018 Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). Obviously we follow this annual report and other publications in the SIEM market. We want to keep up with the trends, the newcomers, the leaders, the strengths of each of the vendors etc.


What is important from our point of view in SIEM systems?

As a technology integrator to SIEM systems you have to be aware of the things that you know, as well as the things that none of us know just yet. You may have the plans today to capture all your firewall logs into a SIEM system, but who is to say what is next? Can you predict the future? If you want a SIEM system to keep adding value over time, you have to take a platform that is easy to expand with. That means inter-operability, integration, file formatting. Pick the one that is easiest to send data to, pick the one that handles the most common file formats, pick the one that is least seen as proprietary, have a close look at the eco system of apps and available "sources".


What do we typically see at our customers running SIEM systems?

We typically see and hear that the platform(s) that scale the best, that are fast in adopting new systems, sources, logs, formats are typically also the fastest in creating your detection scenarios or use_cases. It is all about speed in the security detection world. The attackers are moving fast, the threats are are coming in more volume and sophisitication, in order to keep up, you need to be able to adopt very quick.

With our agileSI™ SIEM content packs, you are up and running in no time to bring SAP® threats into the SIEM monitoring centers, SOC or CDC's.

With the right SIEM, you are able to react much faster. Want to read about the benefits of a SIEM? Click here!
