Understanding and Selecting SIEM/Log Management

There’s an analyst firm you may not have heard of called Securosis. Every member of the firm is a rock-star from one of the major players that got fed up constantly having to guard their words and toe a corporate line. These guys speak it like they see it, and it often isn’t pretty. I butted heads with them my first day at LogLogic and lost. I like them for that.

Anyway, they’ve just written a “what the heck is SIEM” paper. Whilst I disagree with their definition of what SIM and SEM are (my definition is here), the paper is well worth your time. It’s long – 40 pages, but there’s something new for everyone in there.

I highly recommend you make the time (even if it is sponsored by a competitor).
