eIQnetworks (News - Alert), a company that offers simplified security, risk and compliance solutions, recently came up with a new survey which says that 44 percent of respondents took a few weeks to more than a month to deploy their latest SIEM product.
The survey, “Suffering a Case of SIEM?” reveals that a lot of security managers, and network and systems engineers across industries like healthcare, government, financial services and retail, find it tough to fine tune SIEMs to get useful data.
According to the survey, 35 percent of respondents place compliance requirements as the main reason behind the use of SIEM. The organizations claim that their SIEM solution has not been able to detect complexity involved in correlating security and configuration data. Therefore, 31 percent of respondents are considering replacing their existing SIEM solution for better cost savings.
Other findings of the study show that 25 percent of respondents have invested more than a month in professional services since deploying their current SIEM product, and 52 percent of respondents require two or more fulltime employees to manage their current SIEM deployment.
“The survey results indicate that organizations continue to suffer from symptoms of traditional SIEM deployments,” said Brian Mehlman, senior director product management, eIQnetworks. “From cost burdens and management headaches, organizations are looking for a cure to SIEM. The good news is that the remedy to this perpetual affliction is through simplified and cost effective security intelligence solutions that provide organizations with critical visibility across the entire spectrum of enterprise security data.”
eIQnetworks, Inc., the leading provider of simplified security and compliance solutions, announced today that SC Magazine has named the company an industry innovator in Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) for 2012. The SC Magazine report notes, "The big innovation here is the situational awareness approach.
