A modern SIEM should be the nerve centre of your security toolset. But SIEM products are notoriously hard to manage resulting in incomplete event and alert data and no threat context. This lack of threat visibility and correlation of security incidents to actionable intelligence limits an organisation’s ability to prevent, detect and respond to today’s changing security threats. Data Engines can provide the skills and resources to ensure you're leveraging your chosen SIEM platform effectively.
Essential security analytics skills when you need them
In a recent SANS survey, 59% of respondents indicated that a lack of trained security staff and skills were the biggest challenges when it came to threat intelligence and detection/SIEM initiatives. The Data Engines team can provide the point-in-time or continuous managed skills you require to power your SIEM deployment and get serious about threat detection and compliance reporting. We have our preferences when it comes to SIEM platforms (we like ArcSight, Rapid7 InsightIDR and Elastic), but ultimately optimising SIEMs is about mindset and regular incremental improvement efforts so we can also work with Splunk, LogRhythm and IBM QRadar. Our team can help with data quality and retention issues, correlation rules and use case development, reporting and documentation.
Integration of SIEM into SOAR
Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) is the new industry hype, but SOAR no doubt has a role to play in the SOC. Data Engines can assist your team by building process automation into your SIEM with our without a commercial toolset. Increase your teams effectiveness by extending your SIEM to the rest of your control landscape.
