Co-managed SIEM – Level 1 and Level 2 analysis

A SECUINFRA co-managed SIEM can do more!
Our cyber defense experts always stay on top of the current threat situation and constantly analyze conspicuous events (SIEM alerts). They escalate security breaches to the Incident Response Team along with an assessment and clear recommendations for countermeasures.

Co-managed SIEM – SIEM content development

SECUINFRA has continually invested in SIEM content development since 2010 and developed truly innovative concepts, methods and techniques.

SECUINFRA has developed SIEM concepts that are unmatched internationally – including our “status-based SIEM” approach, which has allowed SECUINFRA clients to keep track of active cyber attacks and compliance breaches, the Application Security Cockpit for monitoring critical applications as well as our constantly growing end-to-end SIEM use case library.

Day in, day out, our SIEM content developers apply their own experience together with the concepts, methods and techniques developed by SECUINFRA, allowing them to continue evolving.

SIEM USE CASE DESIGN

The SIEM use case designer reviews your requirements for the SIEM and determines if and how they can be implemented to meet your needs. They also calculate the outlay required and coordinate the implementation in the areas of log policy development, connector development and use case development. Our SIEM use case designers have years of experience in SIEM and can also help you to precisely articulate your requirements.

SIEM USE CASE DEVELOPMENT

If the SIEM is able to provide log data of suitable quality, our SIEM expert gives the SIEM added “intelligence”. This involves defining and implementing the algorithms that will detect any anomalies. To do this, they access our internal end-to-end use case database. If we do not receive any specific strict specifications for the development methodology or naming conventions, we use our own SIEM use case framework.

SIEM CONNECTOR DEVELOPMENT

Our connector developer is responsible for connecting log sources to the SIEM. If log sources are not supported as standard, we will develop suitable connectors for you. The development of these connectors requires specialist knowledge and, above all, a lot of experience. As some of our SIEM experts are engaged in developing connectors nearly every day, they are in a position to deliver swift, efficient results.

LOG POLICY DEVELOPMENT

In the area of log policy development, we support you in defining the right log policy for each log source type. These form the basis of every SIEM. Anomalies can only be detected by generating the necessary data with the right content. This is where the many years of experience we have gained from numerous projects over comes in useful.

Co-managed SIEM – SIEM platform operation

The stable operation of all SIEM components is the basis for detecting security incidents.

Customer examples

All of our co-managed SIEM services are available as individual modules, meaning they are very flexible and can be adapted for your requirements. We have gathered together a few examples of this in practice to demonstrate how we work with our other customers.

With our first co-managed SIEM customers in the area of financial services, we have built up a relationship of trust over several years as their SIEM content provider. In 2014, for reasons of compliance, our client was facing the decision of whether to set up an SOC themselves or to purchase managed SIEM externally. The idea was simple and brilliant: SECUINFRA provides these services. Our Cyber Defense Center was born.

One of our larger customers with more than a billion security events per day comes from the IT services sector. As part of his outsourcing projects, he is obliged to offer managed SIEM, but does not consider this as his core business. With SECUINFRA, he has found a reliable partner with expert know-how to support his customers professionally in the area of SIEM.

One of our customers from the insurance sector has made a conscious decision to purchase the SIEM platform operation from SECUINFRA from the very beginning. Furthermore, we support our customer in keeping an overview of his current threat situation. This frees up capacities and allows the customer to focus on detailed analysis and defense against cyber attacks. New SIEM content is developed jointly on a project basis.
