SIEM tools offer several benefits to MSPs:
- Greater visibility
Centralized log collection, analysis, and reporting on security events that take place on managed networks provides insight into potential threats.
- Enhanced threat detection
SIEM tools can help MSPs discover threats to managed networks that may go unnoticed by other tools. They do this by correlating all events across the entire managed network to identify multivector attacks, their origins, and the potential intent behind the attack.
- Increased incident-handling efficiency
SIEM tools with strong security monitoring tools can help streamline incident handling.
- Simplified compliance reporting
A strong SIEM solution helps MSPs with compliance processes via centralized log collection capabilities, using event log data to provide information for standard or customized compliance reports.
