Whether it’s ransomware that cripples hospitals, data breaches at the COVID-19 vaccine supply chain or social engineering attacks impersonating sports officials and anti-doping programs, cybercriminals are busy. In fact, the number of cybersecurity incidents has tripled in the past 10 years, according to a recent study.

As a result, security leaders are focused on enhancing their threat detection capabilities, improving the efficiency of their teams and increasing budgets. Fortunately, there are a growing number of solutions that help to protect organizations from cyber threats and keep them in control.

For example, security information and event management (SIEM) systems provide intrusion detection and offer visualization of open, deep and dark web intelligence to support incident response activities. And a partner solution known as security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) enables security teams to synthesize threat information for unified analysis and response.

As a result, SIEMs have become a standard component of many cybersecurity toolkits and are widely adopted by large organizations. But there are some important things to keep in mind when choosing a SIEM. For one, it’s essential to choose a trusted brand that has been around for multiple years. In addition, experts recommend looking for studies that are conducted by trustworthy brands and use a large respondent base, ideally over several years.
