Every day security threats increase and companies struggle to keep up. Managed security services help you scale up your security resources without adding staff. Your growth won't be limited by the shortage of security engineers in today's job market.
Cloud-managed SIEM scales without adding staff. Your growth won't be limited by the shortage of security engineers in today's job market.
Unlike traditional SIEMs, there is no software or hardware to buy. We ship you a pre-configured appliance. Your SIEM will be online the same day, versus weeks or months for software and hardware SIEMs.
Your SIEM comes with our staff. We work 24 hours a day 7 days a week monitoring your system.
LBMC offers two managed security solutions that can be used separately or together: IDS/IPS and SIEM. They can be used separately or together.
IDS/IPS (Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System) identifies hostile activity in real time and takes immediate action to block undesirable network traffic. Our team of security analysts provides 24X7 monitoring to immediately detect and report unauthorized access attempts and suspicious activities. Each alert includes a thorough analysis and specific steps you can take to eliminate the threat.
How Our IDS/IPS Works in 60 Seconds
We provide a purpose-built IDS/IPS appliance to monitor network traffic, either passively or inline. Our staff of security analysts monitors your network constantly, looking for signs of attack.
Our systems are constantly updated in real-time to defend against the latest attacks as they occur. No need to worry if your team has installed the latest signature updates. We're on it.
Our team is working around the clock, 365 days a year to keep your network safe. You can rest easy knowing our professionals are standing guard.
LBMC maintains the hardware and the software, which means you don?t have to buy a new appliance every 3 years and there are no system administration headaches for your staff.
We can support monitoring for extremely high performance networks with low tolerance for latency. Our engineers have the experience to deliver a platform that will exceed your expectations for both security and network performance.
For most companies it just doesn't make sense to build out a world-class security monitoring and incident response team. At LBMC we make that level of talent (and service) affordable for our clients, allowing you to focus on running your business.
SIEM (Security Information and Event Manager) collects and analyzes log files from servers and desktops. The log files are normalized and analyzed to identify anomalies and threats. You can configure alerts and run reports to monitor intrusion attempts and security policy violations. All logs are searchable and the log raw files are always available for forensic discovery in the case of a security breach. You can manage the log retention period to comply with regulatory frameworks such as PCI and HIPAA.
How Our SIEM Works in 60 Seconds
The SIEM can accept inputs from any system or application that generates log files. Common inputs include Syslog, log agents (e.g. NXLog, Snare, etc.), and various vendor protocols. Log collection for custom software applications is also supported.
The first stage of SIEM processing is Collection & Normalization. All inputs are brought into the SIEM and normalized based on data type. Putting the data into a common format allows it to be processed more efficiently.
The next major stage deals with processing large volumes of normalized event data (Stream Processing) and analyzing that data to identify things that might otherwise go unnoticed (Correlation). This function is the backbone of the SIEM and is where most of the heavy lifting is done.
SIEM data is routed to its next destination based on the task to be performed. For instance, data related to notifications which require additional analysis for alerting is sent to the Security Operations Center (SOC) for review and, if appropriate, alerts are sent to the client. Other data is routed to the Raw Log Storage function for long-term archival.
The search functions are built on the latest big data technology and provide amazing response times. This allows you to easily perform research to investigate problems, or go hunting for adversaries.
Our team of security analysts will monitor your log files 24x7 and alert you when issues are identified. We are also available to answer questions, assist with log searches, or help out in a variety of other ways.
Our library of reports can help you with everything from maintaining compliance with HIPAA and PCI, to reviewing activity on service accounts. These can be customized and scheduled for routine delivery based on your needs.
After encryption and processing for non-repudiation, raw logs are archived in cloud storage or dropped locally onto your file system. You always retain the ability to access these archived logs as your needs require.
The LBMC managed SIEM solution can accept data inputs from a wide variety of sources. SIEM use cases are based upon patterns in environment, industry trending, risk tolerance, and regulatory obligations. Examples of the more common high-level use cases include the following. Each of these can expand to dozens of individual SIEM correlation rules.
Log retention and daily log review are required for compliance with PCI DSS. Log monitoring can also help healthcare organizations. HIPAA has a requirement to monitor and review access to protected health information (PHI). Our SIEM devices help clients to minimize the impact of or prevent a breach that would have otherwise required disclosure under HIPAA rules. The log raw files are always available for forensic discovery in the case of a security breach. You can manage the log retention period to comply with retention rules for PCI and HIPAA.
