The SIEM spyglass Bringing network security into focus

Finding security issues in your network is crucial for preventing data breaches, safeguarding the confidentiality and integrity of data, protecting reputation and trust, complying with regulatory requirements, and proactively managing cybersecurity risks.

Can you find critical security issues in your network?

Hint: Use the magnifier


Undiscovered devices

Undiscovered devices in a network can pose significant security risks as they may not have proper security configurations or updates, making them vulnerable to cyberattacks. Identifying undiscovered devices using security tools like SIEM solutions is essential to ensure comprehensive network visibility and to proactively address potential security threats before they are exploited.


Sensitive data

Sensitive data, such as personally identifiable information (PII), financial data, and intellectual property, is a prime target for cybercriminals. Breaches of sensitive data can result in severe consequences, including financial losses, legal liabilities, and reputational damage. Effective security measures, including using SIEM for data discovery and classification, are critical to protect sensitive data and ensure compliance with data protection regulations.


Suspicious software installations

Suspicious software installations, such as unauthorized or unknown software being installed on endpoints or servers, can indicate potential malware or unauthorized access. Identifying and investigating suspicious software installations using SIEM helps organizations detect and respond to potential security breaches, prevent further compromise, and ensure the integrity and security of their systems and data.


Firewall traffic trends

Firewall traffic trends can reveal potential security issues, such as suspicious patterns of inbound or outbound traffic, increased traffic from unauthorized sources, or unusual access requests. Monitoring and analyzing firewall traffic trends using SIEM can provide valuable insights into potential security threats and help organizations detect and respond to security incidents on time, enhancing network security posture and reducing the risk of cyberattacks.


File and folder changes

File integrity monitoring is a critical security measure that helps organizations detect unauthorized changes, deletions, or modifications to files and directories. By monitoring file integrity using SIEM, organizations can identify potential malware, insider threats, or unauthorized activities that may compromise the integrity and confidentiality of sensitive data, ensuring data integrity and maintaining a secure computing environment.


Abnormal behaviors

Abnormal behaviors, such as unusual user activities, anomalous network traffic, or atypical system behaviors, can be indicative of security incidents or potential cyber threats. Detecting and addressing abnormal behaviors using SIEM can help organizations identify and respond to security issues on time, mitigating risks and minimizing the impact of potential security breaches.


Malicious sources

Threat intelligence plays a crucial role in cybersecurity by providing organizations with up-to-date information about known threats, vulnerabilities, and attack techniques. Incorporating threat intelligence into SIEM helps organizations proactively detect and respond to potential security threats, enabling timely and informed decision-making, and enhancing overall security posture.
