An analytics-driven SIEM allows IT to monitor threats in real time and respond quickly to incidents so that damage can be avoided or limited. But not all attacks are external—IT needs a way to monitor user activity so that it can minimize the risks from insider threat or accidental compromise. Threat intelligence is critical to understand the nature of the broader threat environment and put those threats into context for the organization. An analytics-driven SIEM must naturally excel at security analytics, giving IT teams the power to use sophisticated quantitative methods to gain insight into and prioritize efforts.

• Real-Time Monitoring
• Incident Response
• User Monitoring
• Threat Intelligence
• Advanced Analytics
• Advanced Threat Detection
