The top SIEM products: A buyer's guide

In this buyer's guide, learn more about the top SIEM products and how they protect enterprises by collecting security event data for centralized analysis, and how to procure these products for your organization.

Introduction

Security information and event management systems (SIEM) centralize logging capabilities on security events for enterprises, and are principally used to analyze and/or report on the log entries received. The analysis capabilities of SIEM systems can detect attacks not discovered through other means, and can direct the reconfiguration of other enterprise security controls to plug holes in enterprise security. Some of the top SIEM products -- assuming an attack is still in progress -- can even stop detected security breaches.

In addition to detecting incidents that would otherwise not be detected and improving the efficiency of incident handling, the primary reason to deploy a SIEM system is to streamline compliance reporting. The latter is made possible through SIEM systems' robust centralized logging and customizable reporting capabilities. Most SIEM products also have built-in support for the most common compliance efforts, such as those related to HIPAA, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard and SOX.

In this buyer's guide, readers will learn which of the top SIEM systems are for their organizations, as well the use cases and ways SIEM systems are used to boost enterprise security and compliance efforts. It also lays out what enterprises need to know before making an investment in SIEM products, and presents direct SIEM product comparisons and product overviews of some of the top SIEM products on the market today.
