Log's Honest Truth — Confessions Of An Information Security Consultant | A Confession From “Mr L” | A Devo Story With Jason Mical

Episode Summary

SIEM solutions have evolved quite a bit over the years. Yet, for most, much of what they do and how they tend to do it have not really matured to a point where they can take a lot of the burden off of the security consultant’s shoulders.

Episode Notes

Security information and event management (SIEM) solutions have evolved quite a bit over the years. Yet, for most, much of what they do and how they tend to do it have not really matured to a point where they can take a lot of the burden off of the security consultant’s shoulders.

In this conversation, we speak with Jason Mical, Cyber Security Evangelist at Devo, about the confession “Mr L” shared with the Devo team. “Mr L” described 3 main challenges faced:

Increased level and variety of data to be ingested

The need to have speed and volume in log collection and storage AND high value in correlation and visualization (trade-offs here are unacceptable)

False positives should really be a thing of the past; how can we get there?

In the end, “Mr L” is looking for a SIEM that is Scalable (to handle numerous data feeds), Cloud-Enabled (to handle real-time insightful visualization), and Business-Driven (to handle what really matters… supporting and protecting the business objectives).

One more truth? Okay. If three blades on a razor are better than two, six may not be better than five — quality matters, not just quantity.

More Data. More Clarity. More Confidence.
