A security information and event management (SIEM) system is a powerful solution that helps organisations detect, monitor and respond to threats to their information security. It enables the centralised collection, consolidation and analysis of security events and information from various sources in real time.
Traditionally, implementing and managing a SIEM system required significant resources and expertise in cyber security. The task of collecting, monitoring and analysing extensive log data could place a significant burden on IT departments. This is where the concept of Managed SIEM Services comes in.
A Managed SIEM Service offers companies the option of using a SIEM system in the form of a service managed by a specialised service provider. Instead of operating the SIEM system itself, the managed service provider (MSP) takes responsibility for the provision, configuration, monitoring and maintenance of the system.
The advantages of a Managed SIEM Service are obvious. Companies can focus on their core competencies while benefiting from the advantages of a robust SIEM system. An MSP brings the necessary expertise and experience to effectively manage the SIEM system and proactively detect threats.
A Managed SIEM Service is a cost-effective option for organisations as it allows them to take advantage of a world-class SIEM system.
