Top 8 Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Tools & Software

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions are designed to automate the collection of event log data from various security devices – helping security professionals make sense of the thousands of events generated through a common management console.

SIEM products use data aggregation and event correlation features similar to those of network-management software products but applies them to event logs generated from security devices such as firewalls, routers, proxy servers, intrusion-detection systems, email programs and antivirus software. SIEM products typically normalize data in order to apply user created rules or out-of-the-box rules. Typically SIEM solutions will translate events such as Cisco and Check Point Software alerts into a common format so the data can be correlated. Like network-management software, SIEM tools generally consist of server software, agents installed either on servers or security devices, and a central management console. SIEM solutions may include an appliance installed on a network for collection.

The below products automate the manual process of collecting event-log data from file systems, security appliances and other network devices like firewalls, routers, proxy servers, intrusion-detection systems, anti-virus software, in-line content filters, scanners, biometric devices, crypto suites and sensors.  When deciding on a specific solution you need to have an accurate inventory of what you have before you choose a SIEM product. If the SIEM vendor can’t monitor all your devices, you will need to collect the data manually or use more than one tool.


The ROI for such systems is based on the time savings and additional productivity in having a single view of your security events and helping you to quickly spot problems through alerting and messaging. Deep forensics of specific events along with storage and archival of events are other factors to consider. Another major benefit of SIEM is in helping you create reports for regulatory compliance.
