Security Information and Event Management


Security Information Management

Unified: Bringing together best in class security analytics, User and Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA), Network Detection and Response (NDR) and Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) rationalise front-line operations.

Efficient: Simplify and reduce a complex network of technologies to allow security teams to focus on core competencies while reducing threat overload.

Strategic: Detailed reporting provides the insight necessary to feed into strategy creation for the continual maturing of security.


1.What is a SIEM tool and how does it work?

A Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution gathers the log data and events generated by your systems, networks and security solutions such as Firewalls and Anti-Virus and then collates this into one centralised platform.

SIEM solutions then use the security data gathered to identify security events and threats and create alerts to ensure the necessary remediation.

Without a SIEM solution, collecting and analysing the log data and events is a manual process. It can often drain on resources as it is a time-consuming and costly process.

A SIEM solution automates the process by quickly and accurately collecting the data and creating the necessary security alerts. This process saves time to detect and respond to security incidents and enables an organisation to allocate its resources more appropriately.

2.SIEM vs a SOC?

As mentioned above, the SIEM solution collects log and event data into one centralised platform and, using artificial intelligence, identifies security threats and creates alerts and reports. Automating this process can reduce the time taken to identify security breaches and respond.

A Security Operations Centre (SOC) combines people, processes and technology with the operational capabilities to respond to security events quickly and start the remediation process to mitigate further risk.

3.What are the benefits of User Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA)

A User Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA) monitors user behaviour and identifies any shifts in patterns that could indicate a security incident.

User activity monitoring solutions enable your organisation to detect and respond quickly to unusual or suspicious activity identifying anomalies in your IT environment and potential insider threats.

4.What is Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR)?

In its simplest form, a Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) is a stack of technologies that enables a Security Operations Centre (SOC) to investigate further and remediate threats.

A SOAR will use standard workflows and automation to collect contextual data about security threats and respond to security events using AI and machine learning.

5.What is Network Detection & Response (NDR)

Sapphire offers a cloud-based Network Detection and Response (NDR) solution that delivers real-time threat monitoring to protect your network against advanced persistent threats. When used alongside

Sapphire’s Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions NDR gives you the visibility to identify security use cases for desktops, supply chains, data centres, public cloud, and IoT/OT environments and reduce your response time.

6.What are the benefits of managing a SIEM solution in the Cloud?

Utilising a cloud-based platform for your security event management reduces the resources required to manage your SIEM infrastructure, deploy upgrades and troubleshooting. Sapphire’s cloud-based SIEM offering removes the operational overhead of managing a SIEM solution in-house.

With 24×7 monitoring and threat detection, all management, patches, and updates will automatically be applied to allow you to focus on the areas that matter most, threat hunting, the qualification of events, and incident response and remediation.
