Bloor Research Paper Log And Event Management

On By In 1

Analytics for IT security has its roots in security information and event management (SIEM) systems with log management capabilities. However, the SIEM market become commoditised and overfocused on compliance. Security analytics vendors are adding ad-hoc SQL query functionality at the back end (and support for third party business intelligence tools), whilst also simplifying and extending their ability to correlate rules or introducing complex event processing engines, which can support low-latency analytics, at the front end.

The tools are thus evolving into integrated, centrally managed platforms that combine SIEM and log management with ancillary capabilities that include integrity monitoring and real time threat intelligence and reputation feeds for combating zero day and advanced persistent threats. Such platforms now provide analytics capabilities that scale to handle the needs of big data sets seen across organisations today, helping to make sense of the massive volumes of data generated. To provide the full range of analytics capabilities that organisations need, such platforms should be integrated with other security and IT technologies, including endpoint management controls, threat mitigation techniques, database activity monitoring, identity and access management systems, and application vulnerability scanning.

New is the appreciation that it’s a “big data” issue and the intelligence available from exploiting all the data available to an organisation can provide it not only with operational improvements, but can also improve its ability to detect and respond to increasingly sophisticated security threats and vulnerabilities. Increasingly, security analytics platforms are expanding to take in an ever-growing variety of feeds, such as those derived from machine-to-machine communications, from sensors built into devices such as mobile phones, smart energy meters, cars and industrial equipment, to provide a higher level of situational awareness across the organisation, which then improves operational decision making.

Near real-time threat protection needs low latency storage while the identification of longer-term attack patterns (hackers often resort to slow attacks in the hopes of evading detection) requires the longer-term storage of, possibly, very large amounts of data, so there is a trend towards using highly compressible file systems rather than databases per se. Only about 3 months of data used to be kept for batch analysis; now, certain threats not only require data to be held for many months but also require analysis in the context of real-time events.

A Bloor paper which discusses the increasing use of big data for security intelligence can be found here.

Solarwinds Log Event Manager

Instantly improve security and compliance with an easy-to-use and affordable SIEM    

 

SolarWinds Log Event Manager (LEM) delivers comprehensive Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) capabilities in a highly affordable, easy-to-deploy virtual appliance.

SolarWinds Log & Event Manager automates and simplifies the complex task of security management, operational troubleshooting, and continuous compliance, enabling IT pros to immediately identify and remediate threats and vital network issues—before critical systems and data can be exploited. Correlating data from many system, network, database, and application logs is just as valuable for day-to-day system administration as it is for IT security.
