Security Information And Event Management System Vendors

Although 99% of IT security solutions satisfy some parts of compliance, most of them would be bought into an organisation regardless of any compliance. An example would be a firewall, email and web filtering solutions.

However IT security professionals usually invest in policy auditors, web application firewalls, vulnerability managers, file integrity software, archiving application control and SIEM solutions to satisfy regulatory compliance and showing due diligence.


SIEM Overview

There seems to be three categories of SIEM vendors on the market today when it comes to how they market their products with other tool sets. The first is a category of SIEM vendors that tend to combine their SIEM products with a combination of other security tools such as, vulnerability management, file integrity, policy auditing and IPS as optional add-ons to their SIEM solutions. Then there is the second category of vendors, where they integrate their SIEM products with Identity and Access management solutions and finally the third category of vendors provide SIEM as a point solution on its own.

SIEM as a product is a combination of Information Management, Event Management and network behaviour analysis tools providing a complete vision of log data and real time events. Some companies only require one or the other (Information Management or Event Management). Information Management is used for historical and compliance purposes and where Event Management is used for real time attack analysis. Some vendors provide these as separate products.
