Factors such as virtualisation, cloud computing, mobility, and a continuously evolving IT landscape have led to the numerous changes in the SIEM market. Traditional SIEM platforms are no longer capable of meeting the needs of security professionals that face new and emerging threats. SIEM services’ capabilities in the past were limited as a convenient tool to help organisations achieve and maintain compliance. However, today that is not the case.
Effective SIEM services today include a range of analytics and AI to detect threats across the spectrum, from malicious insiders and sophisticated advanced persistent threats to ransomware and other commoditised malware. AI-powered analytics that determines the root cause of existing anomalies are emerging in the marketplace and becoming essential tools for both full-scale and ad-hoc investigations. That being said, AI analytics will not replace existing rules or anomaly detection algorithms, since these are essential to help analysts detect potential threat signals.
Sooner or later, AI assistants will be introduced to help analysts set up, configure, and continuously maintain use cases within the SIEM. New machine learning techniques can help security systems identify patterns and threats with no prior definitions, rules or attack signatures, and with much higher accuracy. Security solution providers are also integrating their SIEM solution with big data infrastructure to give organizations the power to avoid the potential embarrassment of processing all the data/events required to detect a security breach.
