SIEM Buyer’s Guide for SMEs

  • SIEM

You have probably seen many other SIEM buyer’s guides and realized that they are focused on large multinationals and Fortune 500 companies and you find them hard to relate to. However, the SIEM products are no longer targeted just at large corporations (despite the fact that they have a reputation of being quite expensive). According to Gartner, SIEMs are going to the mid-market now and it is no doubt that budget-conscious buyers won’t just pour a huge amount of money into a solution they don’t fully understand. The good thing is that smaller companies are more flexible and therefore SIEM vendors are able to offer more reasonable pricing. Thus, there are now affordable SIEM options for small and medium enterprises, too.

So, you have decided that you need a SIEM solution (or a regulator or large partner has demanded that you have it). Now what?
