Top 7 Misconceptions of S1EM

IT CURES ALL AILMENTS

No SIEM completely fixes all security weaknesses, it’s not even designed to, but it will give you visibility of your environment enabling you to know where to direct your efforts and when to respond to anomalies.

IT REQUIRES A LARGE TEAM TO MANAGE

It does require some time investment if you have an internal team. However using an outsourced company can provide the support you need, various companies offer this at a wide range of prices. Obviously, you should check us out.

It will add value to any organisation wanting to take the security of their assets seriously.

ITS EXPENSIVE!

It usually is and many SME’s have been priced out of the SIEM market. Try asking a potential supplier for their payment plan options.

PocketSIEM costs less and is better than many more expensive solutions. we also offer payment plans of up to 18months, interest free

YOU DON’T NEED IT

You’re not wrong, it’s a big investment for some companies who will never reap the value from it. If you hold data or systems you deem to be sensitive, then you probably do need it.

IT ONLY SHOWS YOU FALSE POSITIVES

If a SIEM is configured poorly, it won’t add value to you. It is THAT simple.

IT SENDS YOUR DATA AWAY

With some MSSP providers, yes your data is held in various places. This is not an issue for all companies, but should be considered. Some providers, such as PocketSIEM, install the components in your cloud or on-prem infrastructure, entirely negating this concern.
