Super Scalable SIEMs Set to Tackle Big Security Challenges

(Gl0ck/Shutterstock) The huge volume of network data that organizations need to chew through is putting pressure on security incident and event management (SIEM) software products that use a traditional rules-based approach. That’s opening the door for a new breed of SIEMs that were built from the ground up to run on big data architectures, including both NoSQL and Hadoop. SIEMs emerged near the turn of the century as the firewalls, intrusion detection systems (IDS), and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) of the day struggled to keep up with big network data. As the data volumes have continued their skyward march, the SIEMs have proven ill-equipped to keep up with the scalability requirements, which has opened the door for yet another generation of security tools. Many of these next-gen SIEMs are based…
