Must-Have Features of a Modern SIEM

Initially, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions were readily adopted because of their capability to provide actionable insights into the deep corners of an organization’s network. Legacy SIEM systems helped in understanding when and where security incidents are happening in real-time. Soon enough, these SIEM systems faced an avalanche of false positives, and they required a dedicated team to filter out irrelevant alerts.

Following this, we saw the emergence of next-generation SIEM solutions that provide functionalities and features that were not available with legacy or first-generation SIEM solutions. In this article, we demonstrate the features of a modern, next-gen SIEM solution.

Logging of security events in SIEM

Effective logging of events and activities in an organization’s technical infrastructure exponentially boosts the capabilities of its SIEM solution. In this article, we explore how logs are leveraged in a SIEM solution. First off, log entries can be helpful for multiple purposes such as security, performance analysis, troubleshooting, etc. Considering the size of a modern enterprise’s IT technical infrastructure, monitoring the network alone is not a favorable approach. With a growing number of applications, endpoint devices, and services, event logs must be collected from all such applications, endpoints, and services.
