Transforming security requires a new approach driven by analytics
Many legacy SIEMs fail to keep pace with the rate and sophistication of modern day threats. Splunk’s analytics-driven SIEM goes beyond simple information and event management to tackle real-time security monitoring, advanced threat detection, forensics and incident management. With an analytics-driven SIEM you can build a stronger security posture and improve cross-department collaboration.

SIEM, Security Information and Event Management, provides security monitoring, advanced threat detection, forensics and incident management and more. SIEM provides the foundation for streamlined security operations.
Organizations are often tied to the dated architectures of traditional SIEMs, which typically use a SQL database with a fixed schema. These databases can become a single point of failure or suffer from scale and performance limitations.
By limiting the type of data that is ingested there are limits in detection, investigation and response times.
With legacy SIEMs the ingestion of data can be a massively laborious process or very expensive.
With legacy SIEMs basic actions such as raw log searches can take a significant amount of time – often many hours and days to complete.
The larger SQL-based databases get, the less stable they become. Customers often suffer from either poor performance or a large number of outages as spikes in events take servers down.
As legacy SIEM vendors change ownership, R&D slows to a crawl. Without continuous investment and innovation, security solutions fail to keep up with the growing threat landscape.
Legacy SIEM vendors often lack the ability to integrate with other tools in the market. Customers are forced to use what was included in the SIEM or spend more on custom development and professional services.
Legacy SIEMs are often limited to on-premises deployments. Security practitioners must be able to use Cloud, on-premises as well as hybrid workloads.
