It’s an old story. Admin meets SIEM. Admin falls in love with the demo provided by the SIEM vendor. Admin commits to a 3 year relationship with SIEM.
And now the daily grind. The SIEM requires attention, but the Admin is busy. Knowledge of what the SIEM needs in order to perform starts to dissipate from memory as the training period recedes in the past. Log volume constantly creeps up, adding to sluggishness.
Soon you are at a point where the SIEM could have theoretically performed but actually does not. It’s a mix of initial underestimation of hardware needs, increasing log volume, apathy and dissipation of knowledge about SIEM details.
In most implementations, this vicious cycle feeds on itself and the disillusionment reinforces itself. The SIEM is either abandoned or the user is resigned to poor performance.
What a revoltin’ development.
It doesn’t have to be this way, you know. Our SIEMphonic offerings were designed to address each of these problems. Don’t just buy a SIEM, get results!
