MixMode Guide: The Failed Promises of SIEM

In this whitepaper we'll discuss the ways in which SIEM has failed to deliver on promises made to the cybersecurity industry and why cyber teams must instead turn to a next-gen platform powered by unsupervised AI.

Featured Use Case: Why a Large Government Entity Replaced Their SIEM with MixMode

Despite a three-year SIEM deployment and a two-year UBA deployment, government personnel needed an alternative to better detect and manage threats in real-time. They turned to MixMode.

The Case Against Using a Frankenstein Cybersecurity Platform

The cybersecurity market has, simply put, been cobbled together. A tangled web of non-integrated systems and alerts from siloed systems. Enterprises are now being forced to utilize a “Frankenstein” of stitched together tools to create a platform that might cover their security bases.

How Vendors Capitalize on SIEM’s Fundamental Flaws

By Christian Wiens | November 5, 2020

Because the fundamental nature of SIEM requires infinite amounts of data, security teams are forced to constantly wrangle their network data and faced with an unmanageable number of false positive alerts. This means they have to devise efficient ways to collect, organize and store data, resulting in an incredible investment in human and financial resources.

The Evolution of SIEM

By Christian Wiens | October 13, 2020

It should be noted that SIEM platforms are exceptionally effective at what they initially were intended for: providing enterprise teams with a central repository of log information that would allow them to conduct search and investigation activities against machine-generated data. If this was all an enterprise cybersecurity team needed in 2020 to thwart attacks and stop bad actors from infiltrating their systems, SIEM would truly be the cybersecurity silver bullet that it claims to be.

Whitepaper: The Failed Promises of SIEM

By Christian Wiens | October 8, 2020

The fundamental SIEM flaws lie in the platform’s need for continual adjustment, endless data stores, and a tendency to create an overwhelming number of false positives. When organizations instead turn to a next-generation cybersecurity solution, which predicts behavior with an unsupervised (zero tuning) system, they are poised to save on both financial and human resources.

About MixMode

MixMode is the first to bring a third-wave, context-aware AI approach that automatically learns and adapts to dynamically changing environments. MixMode’s monitoring platform, PacketSled, better understands network behavior as it adapts to baseline changes and enables both misuse detection and anomaly detection, as well as predictive maintenance. Used by enterprises and MSSPs for real-time network analysis, threat hunting and incident response, the platform leverages continuous stream monitoring and retrospection to provide network forensics and security analytics. Security teams can integrate PacketSled into their orchestration engine, SIEM, or use PacketSled independently to dramatically reduce false positive alerts and the resources required to respond to persistent threats, malware, insider attacks and nation state espionage efforts.

The company has been named an innovator in leading publications and by security analysts, including SC Magazine, earning a finalist award in 2018 and 2019 for "Best Computer Forensic Solution.” Based in Santa Barbara, with offices in San Diego, the company is backed by Keshif Ventures and Blu Venture Investors.
