SC Magazine Europe awards HP ArcSight as the best SIEM Solution

sc eu.PNGSC Magazine recently awarded HP ArcSight as the best SIEM Solution in the market. This is a great follow-up after HP took awards in 6 categories at the Info Security Global Excellence awards last month.


The award description is as follows: Security information and event management (SIEM) tools are used to collect, aggregate and correlate log data for unified analysis and reporting. Typically, these tools can take logs from a large number of sources, normalize them and build a database that allows detailed reporting and analysis. While forensic analysis of network events may be a feature of a SIEM, it is not the only feature, nor is it the primary focus of the tool.


HP ArcSight SIEM is focused on helping customers protect their business from threats by managing risks. The platform is used to uncover fraud, data theft and insider threats by correlating event sources to alert security analysts of suspicious behavior.


HP ArcSight’s solution collects machine and human-generated data from any source and consolidates the information for maximum storage and retrieval efficiency. The solution then correlates the events in multiple dimensions including, identity, vulnerability, asset, time, statistical calculations, pattern, and sentiment analysis to detect today’s advanced threats. This enables customers to get an accurate picture of their network security landscape, so that they are able to predict, protect and respond to attacks.


HP ArcSight SIEM enables companies to manage security around big data via integration with Hadoop, enabling businesses to monitor users in the cloud and correlate threat intelligence for greater risk management. Businesses have bespoke systems and legacy investments are critical to monitor, so HP flex connector allows them to easily build their own connectors to these data sources, future-proofing their investment.


ArcSight SIEM delivers ROI in multiple ways. The primary ROI for most enterprises is  compliance cost savings, where the ease of collection and out-of-the-box reporting features of the product smooth the path to compliance. Other examples are more innovative. For instance, financial institutions often use SIEM to monitor malicious log events, like wire transfers, stock trades, or other transactions, to detect fraud.


In addition, HP ArcSight SIEM helps with cost savings by enabling businesses to use the product to monitor shared accounts.  Companies often fail audits due to legacy applications that rely on shared accounts, and the identity monitoring capabilities in SIEM allows customers to monitor who is using the shared account at all times.
