What is a Security Incident and Event Management Platform (SIEM)?
Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) platforms provide organizations with security incident detection, analytics and response capabilities. SIEM software combines security information and data generated by applications, network hardware, endpoints, servers, etc. to provide full visibility and real-time analysis of security alerts.
SIEM platforms match security events against rules setup by the organization and indexes the alerts to search for, detect and analyze potential cyberthreats to the business. With this information security teams can quickly act on alerts to determine if they are actual threats to the business or false positives, and can take corrective action in real time.
