New Release: The Gorilla Guide To…® The Journey to an Intelligent SIEM/SOC, Foundation Edition!

Automation and advanced analytics have proven their value over and over in multiple industries; it’s high time to apply them to security monitoring and response. It’s time to discard old practices of searching log files or examining charts of network traffic—modern threats make automation and AI mandatory.

As an example of how AI-enabled analytics can help protect your assets, think about how much you know about your firewalls. Everybody installs firewalls, but how many organizations know which rules are invoked regularly? Which ones are accomplishing the goals that led to their definition? Which ones are redundant? Organizations try to deal with these questions through a plethora of security systems (see Figure 1), but traditional approaches lag behind the threats we experience nowadays.

An intelligent security platform, such as Stellar Cyber’s XDR, will check what’s going on to reveal how you can improve firewall rules and many other systems. It looks at much more than traffic: it also knows your users, services, and assets. It also applies guidelines learned through the analysis of massive amounts of data collected from many different organizations.

AI-driven security is a major upgrade to traditional security information and event management (SIEM) and security operations centers (SOCs). Stellar Cyber, in particular, can replace many existing tools.

The Journey to an Intelligent SIEM/SOC details the computer security needs of modern organizations and shows how AI and automation can protect them, reducing response time from several months to a few days days or even minutes.
