Security Information & Event Management (SIEM)
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is a sophisticated technology designed to detect, prevent and respond rapidly to security threats within your organisation. CAT’s Security Event Monitoring provides impactful, current threat intelligence, producing a globalised view of the ever-evolving threat landscape and advanced monitoring of your systems, networks, applications, data and devices to help safeguard your digital environment.
Our security engineers are not only skilled and experienced with Splunk, AlienVault and other SIEM platforms, but also with the threat actors TTPs (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures). The intersection of these two skill sets equates to effective managed detection and response at a fraction of the cost to hire and retain such personnel yourself. CAT’s SIME provides your business with a whole team of experienced specialists that remain abreast of the latest threat actors’ TTPs.
What Is SIEM?
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is a sophisticated set of threat detection technologies that combine to provide a holistic view of an organisation’s cybersecurity posture. SIEM platforms collate, manage and correlate log and event information from a variety of sources, such Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) technologies in order to flag anomalous activity and generate alerts.
Traditionally, SIEM was only affordable for large enterprises. Recognising that many SMEs also require the protection provided by a managed SIEM, CAT has made this managed cybersecurity service affordable, effective and simple for businesses.
CAT’s team of skilled security analysts and engineers are highly adept at identifying security threats. Our managed SIEM services will complement and support your in-house or external capabilities, whilst reducing the costly time-consuming and complex tasks associated with investigating real-time and historical network events to identify genuine threats from false positives.
Cyber Audit Team's SIEM
CAT’s SIEM leverages multi-threat security solutions to become proactive in order to spot and prevent attacks as they are attempted, whilst continually enhancing your cybersecurity posture and keeping cost under control.
CAT’s SIEM delivers intelligent solutions, combining log management and powerful intelligence management capabilities with other essential security tools, such as incident response and analysis, asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, and intrusion detection. CAT’s SIEM provides real-time monitoring, correlation and expert analysis of activity in your digital environment, whilst detecting and alerting on valid threats to your systems, networks, applications, data and devices.
How Can A Fully-Managed SIEM Service Help?
A SIEM’s ability to detect complex and evolving cyber threats makes it an essential and powerful tool for organisations of all sizes. Traditional SIEM software and log monitoring tools can offer security insights however, they generate a vast number of alerts that are time-consuming to monitor and require a detailed understanding of threats to be dealt with effectively. This poses a significant challenge for already stretched IT teams with competing priorities, meaning SIEM systems can often be unmanageable for all but the largest enterprises.
Increasingly, organisations that previously sought to bring these services in-house are realising that SIEM cannot deliver the expected benefits without a team of dedicated security specialists that fully understand the latest threats and attack vectors and know what anomalous behaviour to look out for and how to respond to attacks.
Our managed SIEM can also assist in alerting your company to any potential instances of unauthorised downloading of your company’s Intellectual Property (such as trade secrets, CRM data or Financial data), which can be used to identify any internal threat actors, disgruntled employees or staff who are leaving to work for a competitor.
