What Is the Difference Between SIEM and SOAR?

Nowadays, a lot of attention is being paid on the SOAR vs. SIEM debate. To get the most benefit from your security data, it is vital to understand the difference between these essential cybersecurity tools. Although SOAR and SIEM have several components in common, we cannot use these tools interchangeably as they are different in nature.


How to SIEMplify through Cloud SIEM

In our recent article, we outlined the benefits of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems, and why it is a must-have for every organization that operates in today’s cyberspace. It remains the best solution that proactively targets proliferating security threats, though SIEM also brings a number of risks and challenges. In this blog, we address these challenges and explain how they can be overcome by opting for SIEM-as-a-Service instead of on-premises or other options.


User and entity behavior analytics: The intelligent guardian of your business

Identities are easy to fake, but not actions. Closely monitoring the behavior of a person can reveal a lot about their true intentions. Similarly, keeping a close watch on a machine’s activities can expose potential security problems. Blending security information and event management (SIEM) with user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) can bring numerous users and devices belonging to an enterprise under surveillance.


To SIEM or not to SIEM?

Not investing in Security Incident and Event Management solutions means you’re missing out on significant business benefits. SIEM detects and responds to security incidents in real time, which reduces the risk of noncompliance. It also helps realize greater value across all underlying security technology and systems. Reporting with SIEM is more comprehensive and less time-intensive, helping to reduce capital and operational costs through consolidation.


What is a SIEM Use Case?

In regard to rising trends and forms of attacks, a growing number of organizations opt for SIEM solutions so that they can provide a proactive measure for threat management and also acquire a detailed and centralized view of the overall security measures of their organization. Since SIEM is the foundation of a security infrastructure, there are large varieties of SIEM use cases.



Due to the revolution of the internet, cyber-attacks on unsecured networks are increasing tremendously and organizations are on the verge of data breaches. Securing proprietary information, Personally Identifiable Information (PII), or any other sensitive data have become a daunting task. Preventing business disruption, information theft, and reputational loss is necessary to thrive and survive in the competitive industry.


What are Next SIEM Technologies?

An industry that is worth more than $2 billion, SIEM keeps growing and evolving. The first instances of SIEMs appeared as descendants of numerous security technologies: LSM, SIM, SLM/SEM, SEC and such. The earliest versions were so limited that they were barely able to scale across large companies and were rather slow. They also needed huge teams to manage thus raising the costs ever-higher. However, SIEMs have changed greatly since.
