How to Succeed with SIEM

‎07-14-2014 03:14 PM - edited ‎06-09-2015 11:25 AM

We often hear, "SIEM is difficult!"  It may seem that way, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s true that information security threats are becoming more and more difficult to monitor and combat with simple technologies, and the reason is that we are trying to solve a complex problem. There are many ways to simplify your SIEM deployment so that you can focus on threats as opposed to tools, and here is a simple fix. A true security information and event management system (SIEM), like HP ArcSight, allows you to correlate massive amounts of security data to monitor to remediate these threats. ArcSight is a full-powered, heavy-hitting solution for a far-from-simple adversary.


The so called "simple" log/point solutions can't accomplish true threat monitoring, event monitoring and remediation. However, a full ArcSight solution can be daunting to implement and operationalize. The solution is the new HP ArcSight Activate Framework. This FREE framework allows for rapid deployment of standardized use cases to drive quick time-to-value from out of the box, and realize immediate ROI from an ArcSight implementation. These use cases include perimeter and operating system monitoring content including rules, automated alerts and dashboards for a quick and simple look into your environment.    


"With the proper level of endpoint logging you can be up and running with the Activate Framework in a matter of minutes," says John Petropoulos, Chief Solutions Strategist for HP Enterprise Security. "This base content in the Activate Framework is just the beginning."


The framework provides a standard way of creating content. Standardized content means new analysts and engineers can easily review and understand existing content reducing the ramp-up time for new employees. It also opens up the possibility of sharing content with other ArcSight users. Best of all, the base content has been created from 10 years of experience implementing ArcSight in thousands of environments. What does this mean? It is proven and it works!


"The ArcSight platform is so powerful with so many possibilities that it can be overwhelming to beginners. The Activate Framework provides a simple 1-2-3 step process to get it up and running and show the true value of a SIEM instantly" says Petropoulos.
