Gartner Research: Use SIEM for Targeted Attack Detection

Organizations of all types and sizes are failing to discover breaches with sufficient time to minimize the damaging effects. Traditional preventative controls don’t detect or prevent most of today’s advanced and targeted attacks. The adoption of continuous security event monitoring—such as SIEM technology—provides a complementary approach to fill this gap.

But SIEM technology alone will not improve the detection rate and reduce the window of discovery. Effective use of SIEM to collect and correlate security information from across different parts of the IT environment and organization requires that it is a part of a greater concerted strategy. This paper from Gartner explores how IT security leaders can improve targeted attack detection capabilities using SIEM tools through appropriate investments in expertise, processes and complementary technologies.
