Managed SIEM for your business
SIEM generates an enormous amount of data by monitoring various files and data points, which can quickly overwhelm organisations. As such, SIEM requires a dedicated team of cyber security experts, such as Intrix Cyber Security, to manage the data – make sense of it, and give you the information you need.
SIEM provides important insight into cyber threats such as insider threats and advanced persistent threats. These are cyber attacks where the malicious actors seek to gain unauthorised entry to your systems and maintain hidden access over a long period of time. They usually appear as if they are an employee or as part of a usual process.
The attacker typically wants to assume ownership of your data, sabotage your systems, or extort you for financial gain. They are especially dangerous, as they can be subtle and near-impossible to detect without Managed SIEM.
What is Managed SIEM?
Security Information and Event Management (or SIEM), refers to specialist cyber security software that discreetly monitors and reports back on IT system threats or anomalies. SIEM monitors many data points including logs, servers, firewalls, wireless access points, and cloud devices.
Managed SIEM refers to utilising a team of cyber security specialists, such as Intrix Cyber Security, to manage your company’s SIEM data, in order to keep your organisation running smoothly.

It is not enough to simply set up SIEM – you need a crew of IT professionals who know what to do with this data, so that you can be proactively protected from threats, make informed decisions and not be overwhelmed.
