Whether you like it or not, your SIEM is actually preventing you from succeeding in your daily cybersecurity battle. Legacy security information and event management (SIEM) tools just can’t keep up with the pace and sophistication of modern day threats and might be weakening your security posture. It may be failing to detect modern threats and putting your entire business at risk. Or it could be burdening your security operations team by forcing them to chase false alarms while critical alerts go unattended. To put it in simple words, you are not getting the expected return on investment from the traditional SIEM and SOC model!

Here are the top reasons why SIEM solutions fall short of next generation security analytics solutions.

Closed systems lacking scalable and flexible architecture: As structured databases grow, they become less stable. The data structures and formats are closed systems that do not allow integration with other tools or do not offer the flexibility to manipulate event data for the effective analysis needed today. Customers are forced to use what was included in the SIEM or spend huge sums on upgrades, custom development and professional services.

Slow response due to limited search and threat hunting capabilities: The event data stored in SIEM is not built for threat hunting capabilities because they do not store and are unable to scale to the amount of data needed for effective hunting and investigation. Basic actions such as raw log searches can take a significant amount of time—often many hours and days to complete.

On-premise solutions with uncertain roadmaps:Legacy SIEMs are often limited to on-premises deployments, which require constant upgrades. Security practitioners must be able to use cloud, on-premises and hybrid workloads. Without continuous investment and innovation, security solutions fail to keep up with the growing threat landscape.
Extremely high-cost structures:SIEM solutions are typically priced by the amount of log or event data they ingest or store, which make it affordable ton only large enterprises. SIEM solutions often don’t have the critical information needed to detect sophisticated attacks simply because organizations find it too expensive to gather and retain this information, causing missed attacks and data breaches.

Managed Detection & Response

Managed Detection & Response (MDR) is a security solution specifically created for today’s multi-faceted cyber-battlefield. It gives your organization a comprehensive tool for detecting and responding to finding unknown, camouflaged threats which have gotten through protection perimeters.

NetSentries offer highly rated Managed Detection & Response solution using their flagship ElastikTA Threat Analytics Platform. The NetSentries MDR product provide businesses with detailed context and threat intelligence to make it relevant, actionable, and most importantly, enable users to gain valuable insights from their data.

Every NetSentries customer benefits immediately from the unique capabilities of the platform already built along with the expertise of our top-notch Security Analytics available in our 24/7 Global SOCs. Longer term benefits of the NetSentries MDR solution include continuous improvements from our Research & Development approach that will be packaged into the solution time to time.

Predictable and low-cost pricing model independent of the amount of data generated, captured or stored by the solution.

Information such as user context, asset metadata, IP context, geo-location, threat intelligence, as well as application information is added at the time of data ingest allowing this enriched data to be used in real-time threat analytics and for rapid threat investigation and response.

Infinitely scalable because it is built on big data infrastructure that is capable of handling the vast amount of data for storage and analysis. ElastikTA open data model permits data sharing with other external applications allowing organizations to use the data to run their own analytics without having to duplicate the data.

Robust search and visualization capabilities that arm SOC and threat analysts to actively hunt cyber threats to their organization. ElastikTA permits the ingestion and retention of the vast amount of easily accessible and searchable enriched event data.

Don’t risk the future and reputation of your organization to legacy solutions. You can immediately begin exploring the power of Threat Analytics by subscribing to NetSentries prepackaged MDR solutions, with no upfront capex. We have a very simplified onboarding process and our specialized security analysts and engineers are always available 24/7 to help you with integration and ongoing SOC operations.
