When it comes to security log monitoring and management, organizations can opt to purchase, install and manage an on-premise Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution, or engage a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) and obtain SIEM tools and services on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Sirius offers a wide array of both on-premise SIEM and MSSP options, including cloud-based solutions. Clients with non-Internet-facing systems and/or those subject to stringent privacy requirements may be restricted to an on-premise solution. Those unfettered by issues such as these, short on skills, or unable to find qualified IT security resources to implement and run their SIEM solution, should consider the benefits of an MSSP for SIEM in the cloud.
Sirius Managed Services provides an MSSP offering through a partnership with Solutionary, a pure-play security firm and an NTT Group company. Solutionary’s services are built on a patented technology platform and global threat intelligence division to protect against advanced attacks on midsized organizations, global enterprises and governments. Traditional and virtual IT infrastructures, cloud and mobile data are all among its areas of expertise.
MSSP offerings are the best fit for clients who need SIEM but do not have an in-house security staff to install, manage and operate a SIEM tool. It is a fast way to get SIEM capability in place without the need to purchase and maintain equipment.
Both on-premise, product-based solutions and MSSP solutions can satisfy compliance mandates and increase security. The top benefits of partnering with an MSSP include:
- Access to security expertise, research and threat intelligence not available in-house.
- Highly efficient processes and workflow automation to significantly improve time-to-remediation for security issues.
- Cost savings and scalability achieved by outsourcing time-consuming manual correlation and analysis.
- Cross-device and cross-vendor correlation to improve security awareness and reduce risk.
