ArcSight SIEM as a Service, Log Management and Compliance

by in Cybersecurity

We are happy to announce that to provide flexibility to our SecOps customers by supporting different deployment models, we have launched our Log Management and Compliance capabilities as a Service. With the launch of Log Management and Compliance as a Service, we are helping our customers to centralize log management, ease the burden of compliance requirements and go after and find both know and undetected threats at speed and scale on cloud.

Why Move to SaaS (Software as a Service)?

ArcSight SIEM as a Service, Log Management and ComplianceRapid digitalization, shift from offices to remote working, increased attack surface... Those are some of the many reasons why organizations are trying to find better ways to improve their efficiencies, increase time to value as well as reducing costs and protect their workloads. Talent shortage is hitting SOCs, and when the infrastructure workloads and non-security tasks are added to the equation, enterprises fall short of running their operations efficiently and effectively. Painful version upgrades, long deployment durations, increased learning curves and the risks associated with owning the infrastructure is leading organizations to look for alternatives where they can offload the IT related tasks, get more out of their investments, and use their resources effectively.

To overcome all the challenges highlighted above, more organizations are shifting to SaaS or hybrid models which is also our motivation to introduce our powerful SIEM solution as a Service. On the other hand, we are fully aware of the fact that not all the organizations are in demand of SecOps solutions on cloud, some will stay on prem or hybrid models due to the different requirements and business level necessities. We will keep developing our solutions to meet the needs of our customers on on-premises, hybrid or cloud to bring flexibility to the security operations.

Hypothesis Driven Threat Hunting: - Search Fast, Get Results Faster

ArcSight SIEM as a Service has been built to help threat hunting teams with their daily search and hunt activities. One can start with an assume breach scenario and try to validate his and her hypothesis by running numberless reaches on parallel. He or she can save or schedule the searches for further needs and can create queries in the historic data, let us say two months data at speed. Threat hunters can enjoy the ease of threat hunting with outlier detection, powerful fast search engine, historic data search, supervised machine learning and reports and dashboards. It helps threat hunters to reduce detection time for both active and hidden threats and decrease exposure time and the risks associated with it.

ArcSight SIEM as a Service helps SecOps teams to run numberless searches in a timely manner and avoid losing time waiting for search results. It encourages threat hunting teams for exploratory search approaches and creative mind sets to help them validate or negate their assumptions and hypothesis.
