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

Many customers come to MixMode with a very specific business problem when it comes to their SIEM and accompanying cybersecurity platforms. It can be summed up in a quote from a senior security professional working in the SOC of a top government entity: 

“I’m trying to address the same functional requirements today that I was trying to address 15 years ago, and these systems have proven ineffective at addressing not only my functional requirements but they’ve also created operational and technology costs that are unsustainable.” 

One client, a large government entity in the United States, came to MixMode with a similar issue.

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, as well as an improved platform for gathering comprehensive data. 

A large problem with the SIEM and UBA technology used by the government entity was they monitor different data and did not communicate with each other, resulting in the constant need to reconfigure each tool and aggregate data. Managing both the SIEM and UBA platforms was becoming too costly to continue.

Insider threat prevention was another major challenge for this government entity. 

Despite the presence of their UBA platform, they suspected there were internal actors, technologies and policy violations that represented a significant risk. The UBA platform had proven ineffective at identifying these threats and anomalies.
