What is SIEM?
In the field of computer security, security information and event management (SIEM), software products and services combine security information management (SIM) and security event management (SEM). They provide real-time analysis of security alerts generated by applications and network hardware.
The sophistication of threat actors and the ever-expanding attack surface of a modern IT infrastructure have evolved beyond the capabilities of legacy SIEMs and related tools. Security teams need capabilities to rapidly discover compromises and to understand their full scope, so they can respond before these threats impact the business.
In contrast, RSA NetWitness evolved SIEM empowers security teams to detect and understand the full scope of a compromise because it analyzes data and behavior across an organizations’ logs, packets and endpoints as well as the behavior of the people and processes on the network. The solution transforms that data into actionable threat insights to help pinpoint and respond definitively to the threats that matter most.
