SIEM solution

Security information and event management (SIEM) has evolved to include advanced analytics such as user behavior analytics (UBA), network flow insights and artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate detection as well as integrate seamlessly with security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platforms for incident response and remediation. SIEM can be enhanced by consulting and managed services to help with a threat management program, policy management and augmenting security staff.
