+ What is SIEM?

SIEM records data from users’ internal networks (network, devices, servers, and firewalls) and identifies potential issues of attacks.

All those collected information passed to a management console where it can be analyzed to ensure that vulnerabilities between cybersecurity tools can be monitored and addressed.

Once that information reaches the management console, it is then viewed by a data analyst who can provide feedback on the overall process, those feedback will be automatically educated by the SIEM systems in order to increase its familiarity with the surrounding environment.

Once the system identifies a threat it communicates with other security systems to stop the unwanted activity.
