The need for early detection of targeted cyber attacks and data breaches is driving the requirement for SIEM support.
SIEM is an approach to security management that seeks to provide a holistic view of an organization’s information technology security.
The SIEM requirement is driven by customer needs to apply security analytics to event data in real time for the early detection of targeted attacks and data breaches and to collect, store, analyze and report on log data for incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance.
Vanguard’s new Active AlertsTM offering provides the ability to continuously monitor security related events at the system and or user-specified level. When an event occurs, Vanguard Active Alerts will notify the SIEM in order for enterprises to take decisive action and make critical business decisions.
SIEM is supported across the Vanguard enterprise security software suite, through our Active Alerts solution. Today we support ArcSight®, CorreLog®, LogPoint® and Splunk® offerings along with any other SIEM capable of consuming SYSLOG formatted messages.
The SIEM provides a holistic, unified view into not only the infrastructure but also workflow, compliance and log management. SIEM can provide a multitude of capabilities and services efficiently.
At the core, SIEM provides Data Aggregation, Correlation, Alerting, Dashboards, Compliance, Retention and Forensic Analysis.
