- Built-in reports for PCI-DSS, HIPAA, and NIST
Go Beyond the Security Provided by the SIEM and IDSThere are obvious benefits of using a SIEM and IDS for security, but compliance is still the primary reason organizations adopt SIEM. There is an overall change in thought across all industries, especially manufacturing -- organizations are adopting SIEM for security first and compliance second. The compliance-ready reports and integrated security controls are value-added components that eliminate the need to layer on additional security tools and aggregate data from multiple systems. However, managing a robust, integrated solution like AlienVault requires dedicated technical staff. Both the SIEM and the IDS need to be constantly monitored and fine-tuned to your existing environment. Triggered events and alarms require investigation and if you can’t show properly investigated alerts, tickets, and any requested information around the alerts then you could be non-compliant and fail an audit.
Now add-on security compliance management. Do you really want to become a compliance expert too?IT departments are being asked to continually manage more: More security, more monitoring, more compliance, and more advanced functionality for their users. How is it possible for an internal IT department to do it all, and to do it with shrinking IT and security resources?
