Collecting security data is a key element of most risk management strategies. After all, protecting your data and systems involves staying on top of suspicious activity, attempted hacks, and attacks in progress.
The problem is that most organizations are collecting security data from multiple sources, like Windows Eventlog, syslog, database and log files, and the IBM i audit journal. Each source often displays the data in a different format. Most of the data doesn’t warrant any action at all—but the most serious threats require a rapid response.
How can you separate critical security events from the noise without gluing your security analysts to their chairs?
For some organizations, the answer has been a security information and event management (SIEM) platform that enables security analysts to zero in on serious threats. But SIEM solutions are too cumbersome and resource-intensive for many businesses. What would really be beneficial is a right-sized approach to security event management.
IBM i security expert Robin Tatam and Fortra Security Product Manager Bob Erdman demonstrate how mid-market SIEM solutions combine ease-of-use with the functionality you need. There's also a sneak peek at Powertech Event Manager, a platform that normalizes data from different sources—and speaks IBM i.
