What separates next-generation SIEM from traditional SIEM?
To be relevant, a SIEM must be effective and able to keep up with the rapidly changing security landscape. The next generation of SIEM technology fills the gaps in functionality found in first-generation SIEM solutions, while addressing the need to continually evolve with the cyberthreat landscape.
Next-generation SIEM solutions aren’t just about identifying suspicious behaviour. SIEM solutions have evolved to provide a unified user experience that drives highly efficient workflows, offers real-time visibility into your endpoints, and produces measurable results. They improve the speed and effectiveness at which security teams can detect and respond to threats, minimising business interruption and disruption due to a cyberattack.
Although next-generation SIEM isn’t a silver bullet, it is a crucial part of the journey that requires people, technology, and processes to constantly evolve to combat the threats faced.
Page 8: What benefits does next-gen offer beyond security?
The benefits of next-generation SIEM aren’t just about security.
By improving the speed and effectiveness at which security teams can detect and respond to threats, next-generation SIEM is able to minimise business interruption and disruption due to a cyberattack. While user awareness is key to preventing compromises and breaches, the more cybersecurity can sit in the background without impinging on day-to-day business operations, the better.
And there are cost benefits. By bringing all the different security capabilities together into one solution, next-generation SIEM reduces licence costs as there is no longer the need to pay for additional tools required to support first-generation SIEM.
A more efficient and effective security operations centre results in business operations that are more efficient and more cost effective.
