Security Information and Event Management often abbreviated as SIEM is a comprehensive mix of security information management and security event management softwares targeted at providing quick and efficient analysis of security threats generated by applications and hardware alike.
SIEM generally collects and analyzes historical data to find correlations and predict threats. The solution is also implemented to enforce policies and search across vast logs of employee and business data. In fact, due to it’s searching and indexing capabilities, SIEM is even often used in employee directory services.
However, the major focus of SIEM has always been threat detection. The Credo’s SIEM solution also comes fully equipped with visualizations that can clearly reveal patterns in security processes that may be prone to attacks. Cyber warfare, encrypted channels of communication and wrongly configured systems can also be detected easily.
