A security information and event management (SIEM) solution collects and processes logs from all sources in an organization's network and generates reports that provide insights to help defend against cybersecurity threats. This is why a SIEM solution is an indispensable part of an organization's infrastructure in today's cybersecurity landscape. This is why evaluating and zeroing in on a SIEM solution that suits your organizational needs is crucial.
However, the job doesn't end at choosing a SIEM solution. An important part is integrating the solution with your organization's infrastructure to make the most of your SIEM solution's capabilities.

Setting up a SIEM solution is essentially a three-step process.
Prior to integrating the SIEM solution with your network, you need to ensure that adequate system resources are available for the SIEM solution's use. Once you get the prerequisites right, you can move on to deploying the SIEM solution using one of the three different modes of deployment mentioned below.
During the deployment phase, system administrators become familiar with the solution and its workings. This initial phase will also shed light on storage projections, average log volumes, and CPU requirements, helping you make informed decisions.
