There is general state of confusion around the core objective of a SIEM solution. While some believe that a SIEM is a panacea for real time threat monitoring on their infrastructures, others like me believe its NOT!

Often times when I am presenting at conferences across the region, people will ask me “Is SIEM Dead”? Such a great question! Has the technology reached its end of life? Has SIEM really crashed and burned? I think the answer to that question is NO. SIEM is not dead it has just evolved.

They were developed with the goal of helping organizations in the early detection of targeted attacks and data breaches. But SIEMs have struggled to keep pace with the security needs of modern enterprises, especially as the volume, variety and velocity of data have grown. As well, SIEMs have struggled to keep pace with the sophistication of modern day threats. Malware 15 years ago was static and predictable. But today’s threats are stealthy, and polymorphic.

SIEMs were a great technology when we were dealing with protecting the known, with fixed perimeters and signature-based security. But is this reflective of today’s dynamic threat landscape, with a porous perimeter and workloads moving to the cloud?

To catch up with the latest reality of cyber threats, traditional SIEM vendors has had to come with bolted modules, which has astronomically shot up RoI, makes it very difficult to deploy, management and administer. A new approach is needed, and that’s what the SECEON OTM platform provides. All you’ve wanted your SIEM to do and much more – with no overhead or chaos that comes with the management of a SIEM.
