Did you know that the average enterprise security team sees 200,000 security events per day?

As attackers become more dangerous and the regulatory environment continuously evolves, basic tools just can’t keep up. This is why upgrading to a Modern Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution is crucial.

SIEM solutions go beyond the automatic collection, parsing and normalising of logs. They apply advanced correlation and analytics to automatically detect threats, assess their severity and filter through the noise to alert you to critical events. They leverage built-in automation and intelligence to keep you protected — while simultaneously freeing up time to focus on remediation and recovery.

However, before you upgrade to a modern SIEM solution you need to be able to determine the best solution for your organisation. This report explores the five key questions to help you make this decision.
