10 Reasons Your Existing Security Information and Event Management Isn't Good Enough

The security industry has seen a lot of action in the past 15 years. Hackers have been busy discovering vulnerabilities and developing new threats to exploit them. Manufacturers have built point solutions to secure computer networks and applications from those threats. Enterprises have responded in turn, making significant investments in token-based authenticators, firewalls, intrusion prevention, identity and access management, e-mail security... the list goes on. The result has been more and more hardware and software tools sitting on enterprise networks requiring additional management and generating reams of data.

Sure, enterprises are doing more to secure their networks than they did 15 years ago. But are they more secure? The answer is a resounding no based on the fact that we are continuing to see new and innovative attacks. These attacks are also more dangerous as attackers are now financially motivated. The only significant difference between the enterprise network of today and that of 15 years ago is the complexity of the technology. We're dealing with Web applications and service-oriented architecture (SOA) now instead of client server architectures. This complexity is creating significant challenges in how we protect our information and in our ability to answer the questions, "Are we secure? Is our data protected?"

This white paper explores the problems with current SIEM systems and offers a solution that provides significantly improved security.
