CloudJacketX Managed SIEM

What is a Managed SIEM?

A Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution refers to software that centralizes data by collecting logs and events generated by host systems, security devices, and applications.  These logs and events are then translated into reports and alerts that allow professionals to improve the security of their system.

SECNAP is proud to announce the arrival of our latest security module, a fully Managed and Monitored SIEM. It is available as a stand-alone solution or as an add-on module to our managed Security-as-a-Service platform, CloudJacketX.  It is scalable and easily deployable in cloud, physical, virtual, and hybrid environments.

The Challenge with SIEM Solutions

The real challenge of a SIEM is actually keeping up with the amount of data being created.  When your team is busy sifting through the duplicate and false alerts it can monopolize your security team’s attention while allowing real threats to slip in.  

Compliance requirements typically mandate that an organization have a SIEM solution in place for log retention and review.  However, between the collection, correlation, and management of large volumes of data it can consume a lot of resources. Even more so, the small to mid-sized organizations may find a SIEM cost-prohibitive and struggle to find and retain the talent needed to manage a SIEM properly. 

Why does my organization need a SIEM?

Historically, most organizations aquired a SIEM in order to meet compliance requirements.  With threats such as Ransomware, which evolve and infect rapidly, the importance of threat hunting is driving organizations to reduce risk.  Accelerated detection and response is what IT Teams are striving for in order to reduce the risk of a data breach or even the hault of business operations.  

Why do Organizations Deploy SIEM Solutions?

  • Meeting compliance requirments
  • Preventing and reducing the risk of security breaches
  • Gaining and maintaining certifications
  • Improved log management and retention 
  • Continuous monitoring and incident response

  • Improved Reporting and Visibility
  • Case management or ticketing systems
  • Policy enforcement validation and policy violations
  • Improved forensic capabilities
  • Visability of Unpatched devices

CloudJacketX SIEM: Managed & Monitored by our 24/7 Security Operations Center

Our CloudJacketX SIEM is managed and monitored by the same group of security experts that designed and built it. This allows for direct channel of communications from our security analyst that are monitoring our solution to our security engineers and developers who are constantly improving it.

SECNAP Network Security takes a concierge approach to threat detection and response.  Our security-as-a-service solution allows for real-time data analysis, early detection of data breaches, data collection, optimized reporting and forensic capabilities.  

Since each of our clients are different, they each have their own unique business patterns.  By understanding these patterns, SECNAP is quickly able to identify anomalous activity which allows security analyst to take a closer look and take action when necessary.  We developed our solutions for the small to medium market while maintaining features and functionalities that enterprise organizations have come to count on.  

Comprehensive Cybersecurity that Fits Your Budget

Inadequately protected networks are extremely vulnerable to infiltration by a variety of rapidly changing and increasingly sophisticated global cyber threats, including data breaches, ransomware, phishing, and advanced persistent threats (APTs).

A security information and event management (SIEM) solution collects logs and event data from clients’ host systems, applications, and network and security devices throughout the organization’s infrastructure and organizes the information into a single, easily viewed platform. In addition to correlation, categorization, analysis, and alerting of security incidents and events, a SIEM provides log retention and retrieval functions that aid in compliance reporting.

Organizations can mitigate risk, defend against cyber threats, simplify compliance, and improve forensic capabilities by deploying a managed SIEM solution backed up by 24/7 SOC monitoring. However, most fully managed SIEM tools with SOC monitoring — let alone managed detection and response (MDR) — are cost prohibitive for many organizations. Less expensive solutions instead offload some or all of the management, support, and data output monitoring to the organization’s IT team. This poses a significant internal challenge even for many large organizations.

A SIEM is Only as Good as The People Monitoring It

SIEMs must be monitored 24/7 so that identified threats can be responded to immediately. Most organizations lack sufficient staff to devote to roundthe-clock SIEM monitoring and threat management. Internal IT personnel struggle to find the time to properly manage the SIEM and still complete their other job duties. The typical organizational network generates 10,000 alerts each day. Nearly all of these are false positives, but since the risk posed by a bona fide threat is so dire, each one must be investigated. Alert fatigue sets in, and malicious activity slips through.

Finding, Retaining and Scheduling Cybersecurity Staff 

Another common issue is a lack of in-house security expertise. SIEMs are valuable tools, but  they provide only incident monitoring and alerts, not response. Early detection of a cyber threat is of no value if the staff monitoring the SIEM lack the  expertise and ability to immediately respond to the threat.  Cybersecurity personnel are difficult to find and retain. Nearly two-thirds (65%) of organizations report a shortage of qualified cybersecurity personnel, and 51% of cybersecurity personnel report that their organizations are at moderate or severe risk of cyberattacks due to a lack of adequate cybersecurity staffing. 

Due to a lack of adequate staff to monitor a SIEM around the clock, and staff who also may lack security expertise and experience to respond to threats, organizations may struggle with a security tool they are unable to use properly — which results in a network that remains vulnerable to attack.

Multiple Layers, Timely Monitoring, and Rapid Response

SECNAP’s CloudJacketX Managed SIEM is a security-as-a-service solution that provides superior layers of detection and protection, backed up with real-time incident response by our 24/7, U.S.-based SOCs, all at a fraction of the price of competing solutions.

Early identification is of no value if a threat is not stopped. The CloudJacketX Managed SIEM combines MDR services with a fully managed SIEM, enabling SECNAP to respond immediately and block cyber threats in real-time.

Multiple Layers, Timely Monitoring, and Rapid Response

Real-time security monitoring from our 24/7/365, U.S.-based SOC, staffed by U.S. citizens who are all highly vetted SECNAP employees

Active Directory Monitoring

Allows our SOC to monitor when modifications such as add, change, remove and escalation of privileges, are made to computers, groups, group members and policies.

Behavior Profiling/Data & End User Monitoring

Immediate investigation of anomalous activity, such as strange DNS lookups or a user logging in at odd times.

Application monitoring

allows SECNAP to alert clients if they are running outdated software that could leave them vulnerable to an attack, as well as notify them when their end-users install or modify applications.

Multiple Layers, Timely Monitoring, and Rapid Response

  • Threat intelligence. SECNAP develops our own threat intelligence in-house through a network of globally deployed sensors and honeypots that track the spread of international threats and views hacking activities in different regions, including the development and testing of malware. This allows us to program our systems and create patches which can block emerging-malware well ahead of it being released into the wild.
  • Highly intuitive log search with a web interface to search either current day or historical logs, retain, and retrieve them for compliance purposes, with reports to enhance visualization.
  • Forensic capabilities. Logs are automatically sent to the SIEM so that analysts can analyze events; these logs can also be presented as a defense in court cases. One year of archived log data is retained for all devices.
  • Analytics. One central dashboard allows clients to view the same information our SOC does, including when users are logging on and off.
  • Incident response in compliance with NIST SP 800-61, Computer Security Incident Handling Guide.

Cybersecurity Should Simplify Compliance and Be Flexible

    • Facilitates Compliance and can be configured to meet any SIEM-related compliance requirements, including PCI DSS and HIPAA.
    • Flexible deployment options with the ability to receive logs inline and in real-time, on-prem or in the cloud, from any device that can export them.
    • Event collection rate suited for very large scale deployments. SECNAP sizes our hardware and virtual machines based on each client’s individual needs so that our hardware will never slow down a client’s network.

Seamless Teamwork from Your Cybersecurity Service Provider

Unlike some security providers, we don’t outsource our development or our SOC. Our developers and security analysts are based in the same buildings, making communication seamless and allowing for a continuous feedback loop between the security experts in our SOC and our development team. SECNAP’s security analysts provide feedback to our development team so that they can address specific client needs and make overall improvements and enhancements to our SIEM.

SECNAP’s ability to rapidly develop new features to continually enhance network security provides a significant advantage over competitors who utilize outsourced third-party SOCs or SIEM tools.
