Ultimately, MixMode found, the log-based SIEM approach resulted in five times the amount of data that needed to be stored, a cost that was passed along to the government entity.
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.
Complying with privacy regulations requires all organizations to have access to data on demand, wherever it lives on a network. With the unfathomable amount of data managed by most organizations operating in the finance space today, it can become a significant challenge to locate specific data across legacy systems and networks with countless connections online and off.
The very nature of data is its infinite capacity for growth. For security teams at large, highly integrated and complex enterprises like financial services institutions, that growth can quickly become unwieldy when the approach is to store, normalize and prepare all of this data in order to extract value.
