The total ranking of a product (and the bar length) is based on a weighted aggregate ranking. For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points. Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in the category. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score and bar length for reviews would be 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14.
In the final section, Average Rating, there are 30 points available to each product independent of the other products.
Reviews and ratings that are more than 24 months old, as well as those by resellers, are excluded from the rankings.

What is Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)?

What is SIEM? A Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system gives security managers a holistic overview of multiple security systems. SIEM tools centrally store and analyze log from different locations in order to spot patterns and trends that might signal an emerging security threat or attack. SIEM security combines a security information management (SIM) system with security event management (SEM) to form a single SIEM software solution. In this way, SIEM blends the best of event management tools with security event and incident management technologies.

There are multiple SIEM vendors competing in the market today. IT Central Station members offer a number of recommendations for those considering SIEM solutions.

One phrase that comes up repeatedly in IT Central Station dialogues about SIEM products is “real time.” According to reviewers, SIEM technology should possess real-time threat analysis and reporting capabilities. Solutions should offer real time security related logs and incident reporting. Reports need to specify possible risks and damage to infrastructure. A SIEM tool should ideally provide real time gathering of logs and Log Correlation. Notification event Triggering and the availability special Event Collectors with different environment is viewed as a most important criterion.

Some IT Central Station members stress the importance of SIEM being able to combine information from multiple sources. The solution has to be capable of intelligent queries on these combined sources. Put another way, SIEM must offer compatibility with diverse security data sources and be able to adapt to new or unknown sources. Then, the SIEM solution should perform multilevel correlation on those sources of data.

Efficient use is important. A SIEM tool must be easy to deploy, configure and use. SIEM can be more effective if it integrates with Identity and Access Management.  Alerting and workflow integration adds to administrative efficiency.

Specific features recommended include packet analysis, audit trail creation, threat intelligence and search. Users encourage potential buyers to have confidence in the power of a SIEM solution’s search performance and the performance of its threat intelligence engine.  The solution should be capable of parsing any log format.
