Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

Practical advice for choosing your first (or next) SIEM

Rapid7 SIEM Buyer's Guide

Security information and event management (SIEM) solutions have been around for the better part of two decades, but today's SIEMs don’t quite resemble their original, log management counterparts. Whether your organization is currently SIEM-less, or you’re exasperated and exhausted by your current SIEM, trying to negotiate the security products market to find the right SIEM solution for your organization can turn into a full-time job.


This guide will help you rein in the SIEM evaluation effort by introducing today’s market, including what SIEM solutions can offer and how their capabilities can align and customize to your specific needs. So, let's get started (no form required).

When it comes to evaluating SIEM vendors, this guide covers:

1. The new frontier of SIEM

2. Protecting against today's threats

3. Traditional SIEM pitfalls to avoid

4. SIEM for threat detection, monitoring, and incident management

5. Data collection and analytics

6. Response across the incident lifecycle

Looking to extend your security team with 24/7/365 managed coverage?

Unlike a managed security service provider (MSSP) that monitors network security controls and sends alerts to you when anomalies are identified, but does not investigate or respond to threats, a managed detection and response (MDR) service acts as an extension of your security team, providing round-the-clock detection, as well as response. You'll get a combination of centralized log management backed by 24/7 monitoring by an experienced security partner.
