MXDR (Managed Extended Detection and Response) is a professionally managed combination of tools that use powerful AI to correlate readings from different security monitoring tools. The process for implementing MDXR depends on the tools you already have in place. Switching to a new tool can be tricky if you’re mid-contract with another vendor. It’s a good idea to talk to a defensive cybersecurity expert to get set up with the right stack of tools for your organization!
As online and at-home banking options become more accessible, more online activity increases the risk of theft. Since 2021, IBM reported that the average cost of a breach rose from $4.24 million to $4.35 million.
Security information and event management, or “SIEM,” is a tool that assimilates all of your log data to give you an all-encompassing overview of the activity on your network. SIEM tools watch over your network and help you stop trouble in its tracks. Whether your organization has 200 or 20,000 employees, SIEM software can be a vital part of any company’s cybersecurity posture.
In 1974, the great Mohammed Ali said of his opponent, George Foreman, “His hands can’t hit what his eyes can’t see.” The same principle rings true in the cybersecurity world; we can't stop an attack until we know it is happening. That is why SIEM experts, like ProCircular’s Josh Resch, dedicate themselves to monitoring our clients’ networks for suspicious activity. Although each SIEM product works a little differently, they are all designed to help identify and track early signs of malicious activity on your network. A well-maintained SIEM can drastically reduce recovery time from a security incident by showing exactly where the attacker has been.
Yes! SIEM (Security Information and Event Manangement) helps with compliance reporting and real-time incident response by centralizing, analyzing, and reporting data about your organization's security events. Other security software has a narrow scope of detection and remediation. SIEM is the most comprehensive type of defense for your network.
