Moving your IT systems to the cloud has many benefits, however, hackers are looking to access your resources and data all the time. When the cloud was first introduced, simple antivirus and log aggregation systems were enough to keep you protected, but this is not the case anymore. These basic solutions won’t prevent all malicious activity from occurring in and around your network.
Today, the best protection for your organisation is a reliable SIEM solution that provides you with the protection your need from sophisticated attacks. Many organisations ask us how they know that the information stored in the cloud is safe. We use an SIEM platform that monitors all critical systems no matter where they are located. It can be applied either to your client’s site and managed remotely as SIEM Management, or it can be hosted in the cloud as SIEMaaS.
How do you know where the threat is coming from?
With most cloud services there are a lot of encryption codes and security measures taken, but these precautions can be bypassed by files being accessed by a large number of individuals or by being moved, replicated, and shared frequently. Faulting equipment, bugs, and erroneous actions can also create an opening for online hackers. With SIEM, a company’s online environment is monitored and you will be aware of any threats.
With full visibility of your organisation’s cloud activity, we can notify MSPs within minutes of any threat posed to your cloud environment. Further, you have a team of experts that understand what the threat is and how to resolve the situation immediately. Our team gives MSPs specific instructions on what needs to be done to keep the environment safe.
Just as SIEM Management works, SIEMaaS works efficiently in the cloud by covering multiple hosts at once. Data breaches, data loss, account hijacking, and system and application vulnerabilities are some of the threats that come from the cloud, and it is in your best interest to have a credible team of specialists on your side to recognise malicious activity. This is why SIEMaaS is an effective solution for keeping your organisation safe.
