Consider Outsourcing the Management of your SIEM
Not Plug and Play
It requires experienced security engineering to tune the SIEM to minimize false positive alerts and maximize the efficient detection of real breaches or malicious behavior.
Managing a SIEM ain't easy
Deploying a fully managed SIEM also means that your team consists of security analysts that oversee your system around the clock and calendar. This is their one and only dedicated job, and not an additional task for an already overworked engineer.
Security analysts must know what to look for in all this data. Utilizing a SIEM makes it easier to correlate the data, but understanding what type of alerts and suspicious activities to look for is a specialized craft.
What Happens When You Outsource the Management of a SIEM?
One thing that most people in the industry can agree on – SIEM implementations are tough, invasive, and time-consuming. Each device must be touched, configured, and coordinated – this is a painstaking step that can’t be avoided. Then, the data starts flowing and you must have the expertise to use it.
Here’s what to expect after your initial install when you outsource the management of your SIEM to Cybriant:
24/7 Analysis and Alerting
Let’s Talk Alerts
Our team will look at any suspicious activity and determine which level of alert this activity falls under. When we identify a critical alert, we will open a ticket and follow a pre-defined escalation path informing the appropriate people in your organization with the information they need to take effective action.
It’s very important to understand how an MSSP handles the alarms on your system. Many companies simply forward an alarm no matter the level of criticality and then expect you to respond as you deem fit.
What differentiates Cybriant is that our security experts will only engage your resources on alarms determined to be critical alerts while also providing detailed instruction on the actions required to remediate the event
If you think your organization can benefit from this service model, let’s have a discovery call to design the right solution for your specific environment and security needs.
