  • They can identify the cause of attacks.
  • Detect activities and examine threats based on previous behaviors.
  • Help protect your business reputation and sustain customer trust and avoid penalties.
  • Increase your system or app incident protection to avoid damages to virtual properties and network structures.
  1. Lack of context
    A SIEM should be built by analysts, for analysts. This means that when an analyst is reviewing alerts or logs, the SIEM should provide context and information in a meaningful way. Fortunately, log enrichment, or the art of adding context to a log, is something a SIEM is extremely successful at. Unfortunately, most SIEM implementations prioritize data collection over log enrichment.
  2. Too much maintenance
    If you spend 80% of your time performing maintenance tasks like deploying agents, parsing logs, or performing upgrades, then you are likely not getting the maximum value from your SIEM. Automation is critical to a successful SIEM implementation. Your environment is constantly changing, and automation is necessary to keep up with it so you can better spend your time on implementing tactical capabilities.
  • Monitoring loads and uptimes
    With a SIEM system tuned with appropriate correlation rules and alerts, it becomes possible to continuously monitor load, uptime, and response time on various servers and services. This enables catching faults and overloads early, ensuring that downtimes and the cost associated with them are prevented.
  • Tracking system changes
    Set appropriate rules for flagging critical events, such as unauthorized changes to configurations or deletion of audit trails. These changes should be escalated immediately to stop the damage and minimize further risks, as tampering with audit logs is always a red flag.
  • Secure cloud-based applications
    Cloud computing has many advantages, but it also comes with several challenges: meeting new compliance requirements, improving user monitoring and access control, or preparing against possible malware infections and data breaches. A SIEM should support cloud-based applications as log sources, such as Salesforce, Office365, or AWS, to extend compliance monitoring and threat detection to the cloud.
