Security information and event management (SIEM) provides insights into a corporate IT environment through functions like log management and security information management. Every business can benefit from the comprehensive security features that only a SIEM solution can offer. If your organization wants to establish an effective protocol for cybersecurity, a SIEM system is the best way to do so. SIEM tools make staying on top of the tasks more manageable.

SIEM tools have been around for years, but with the emphasis on compliance regulations and protecting sensitive data, most businesses are just now getting around to implementing them. When you are choosing a SIEM tool, you should look for features such as compliance reporting, threat detection, historical log analysis, customized dashboards, as well as analytic capabilities.

SIEM tools pull together data and threats from across an IT environment into a single easy-to-use dashboard. Small and mid-size businesses can reap the benefits of SIEM capabilities by partnering with an MSP. It is not cost-effective for them to purchase SIEM tools for their business.
