SIEM tools are designed to help businesses fulfill the IT audit and compliance requirements imposed by government regulation. The traditional high cost of these tools has in the past meant that many organisations have needed to cut corners, and use inefficient manual audits and reports, needlessly exposing themselves to higher IT security risks.
Recent security breaches at Yahoo!, LinkedIn, eHarmony and others highlight the need for companies to protect themselves against criminal hacks. The frequency of successful attacks has led to the creation of many government regulations mandating minimum levels of data security and auditing. Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), have become important considerations for businesses of all sizes.
Alex D Paul, Director - ITSM Products at ManageEngine commented, “Sophisticated security management tools have traditionally been something only the largest organisations could afford. Our latest security solutions have enhanced the tools used by large government agencies and big business, and made them affordable for businesses of any size. EventLog Analyzer has been designed to be easy to use, incorporating web technologies, so any IT team can quickly secure the business.”
