Making SIEM's Superior Security Protection Available to Your Customers


Effective security starts with real-time visibility into all activity on all systems, networks, databases, and applications. Security information and event management (SIEM) monitoring options and other technology can help. But can you or your customers afford the staff required to monitor a SIEM system 24 by 7? Here's a look at how new options can make sophisticated security protections available to you and your customers.

As the world’s largest dedicated security technology company, McAfee has long recognized the ongoing importance of ensuring the safety of IT systems and data in customer companies. As cyber-attacks become ever more sophisticated and costly, security measures must be reevaluated in tandem.

Deploying SIEM

Many of your customers will likely evaluating whether they need SIEM within their environment. Can they afford the staff to monitor a SIEM system 24 by 7 or have staff respond to off-hours alerts with the appropriate escalations? Does their team have the know-how for the required set up and configuration that is required, including integration with custom event sources and creation of custom correlation rules?
