Reports of cyberattacks now dominate the headlines. And while most high-profile attacks—including the major breaches at JP Morgan, Anthem and Slack—originated outside of the victimized organizations, theft and misuse of data by privileged users is on the rise.
In fact, 69% of enterprise security professionals said they have experienced the theft or corruption of company information at the hands of trusted insiders. There are also cases where a company’s third-party contractors, vendors or partners have been responsible for network breaches, either through malicious or inadvertent behavior.
Protecting privileged access and preventing breaches remains an urgent concern for companies of all sizes. Attackers are using a wider range of more sophisticated methods to infiltrate vulnerable systems. And although news of external breaches often dominates headlines, organizations must also be able to defend against insider threats.
SIEM (security information and event management) software offers a lot of promise, but legacy SIEMs simply can't keep up with the rate and sophistication of today's cyberattacks. Organizations today require access to analytics-driven SIEMs that combine a big data platform that is optimized for machine data with advanced analytics, threat detection, monitoring tools, incident response tools and multiple forms of threat intelligence.

It feels as if these folks have been around forever. They started life as a SIEM with a heavy emphasis on log management. Today they are all that plus a solid suite of next-generation attributes. They have many of the attributes of next-gen SIEMs: artificial intelligence, sophisticated log correlation, sophisticated pattern recognition and behavioral analysis. Their strength is, as it always has been, log management. But “log management” has taken on an entirely new dimension with this product. As is absolutely necessary today, it has the intelligence to analyze, correlate and make sense of huge amounts of data.
