Managed SIEM is an IT department that builds and manages the product. Today’s Managed SIEM is application security software, which is cloud-based and is being sold as managed security solutions. IT security practitioners who build and maintain these SIEMs handle customer support, training, upgrades, maintenance, and configuration.
It is essential to note that the traditional definition of “managed” SIEM, as defined above, refers to the combined cloud and on-premise offerings. However, with the number of point products on which a SIEM is deployed growing significantly in the mid-market, some vendors are packaging the SIEM together with multiple point products.
Some other vendors now offer services that make deploying and managing a security infrastructure possible on-premise in your business or even a third-party’s data center. As a result, vendors have made it possible for organizations to deploy and manage security solutions in the cloud.
This new managed security infrastructure has broad applicability as companies embrace cloud technology.
What kinds of security problems are these SIEMs solving?
These are tools to improve an organization’s ability to detect and respond to network and computer security threats by analyzing unstructured data.
1) Superior customer service through more responsive web services, efficient access to records, automated responses, and a faster initial meeting
2) Faster project results through adhering to documented project criteria
3) Improved training through guideline usage, and 24/7 active support
4) The assurance that the asset is managed consistently and that all issues are resolved as expected

Azure also offers secure, compliant ways to deploy Windows 10 Enterprise, which includes Enhanced Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and Windows Data Protection, and Enterprise Security Management (ESM), allowing IT to harden their technology environment to meet regulatory and compliance requirements. Customers can leverage Windows to deploy and manage their solutions across on-premises, hybrid, and cloud environments. Azure’s efficient licensing model makes IT efforts for managing and maintaining Windows 10 Enterprise products more cost-effective.
Many companies have multiple security appliances deployed in their environments or integrate one into another. The only problem with these methods is how to store all of the data. Without a centralized data store, your security operations can’t do their jobs.
Enter Splunk’s Security Appliance.
The security appliance combines the data from Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) and the network event log in a way that makes it actionable, dynamic, and secure. The appliance plugs into any Splunk environment and leverages the security event log from Splunk Enterprise Security to pull the metadata, filtering out the “noise” in the environment, such as agent monitoring and firewall logs. The data is stored in a secure, cloud-based server, with fully encrypted access to prevent unauthorized access.
Splunk analysts then access this data by being given access rights based on their level of security training.
This opens up new ways of gathering security data, allowing the Splunk analyst to look for threats, provide alerts, and protect the business with a structured and configurable audit trail of events and indicators.
Log Rhythm is a new SIEM and Data lake appliance built on Infoblox. It provides an out-of-the-box Log and Data Lakes containing billions of historical and real-time events that can be easily queried by one person or can be queried by distributed teams of security analysts. Data Lake stores highly customizable and integrated security events and data, which allow users to make the right security decisions for their organization.
It has a wide range of capabilities to proactively detect data breaches and alerts, gather intelligence, and open a conversation with customers to resolve issues that occur at the edge of their organization.

We’re increasingly using SIEMs to respond to machine-to-machine threats. The tools used by these SIEMs are expanding and this helps the threat teams to maintain a centralized overview of all the devices connected to the network.
