Fully-Managed SIEM solutions have proved that they are an essential security solution that businesses need to invest in. However, when determining which SIEM solution is best for your business, knowing how you want to manage the solution is critical. Let’s break down the three traditional management levels: self-managed, co-managed, and fully managed, and the responsibilities of each.
Self-Managed SIEM: A self-managed SIEM solution used to be the traditional deployment model of SIEMs. Self-managed SIEMs are largely for enterprises with adequate IT resources, like time, personnel, and budget, to parse through and triage the alerts generated by the SIEM. Self-managed SIEMs can either be self-hosted or cloud-based.
Co-Managed SIEM: Because there continues to be a shortage of cybersecurity professionals, many enterprises are opting to invest in a co-managed SIEM environment. In a co-managed SIEM environment, your IT department will work alongside your MSSP to secure your environment, triage and respond to alerts, and handle incident response.
Fully-Managed SIEM: IT departments are being stretched to their limits while trying to keep their organizations secure from malicious outsiders. For this reason, fully-managed SIEM solutions, where the MSSP has complete responsibility for detection, analysis, containment, and response, have become increasingly popular. With a fully-managed SIEM solution, businesses are only responsible for leveraging the SIEM data.

With the ever-expanding complexity of the cybersecurity industry and the speed at which technology is developing, SIEM solutions offer features that equip businesses with the necessary tools to gain a holistic insight into their attack surface, mitigate increasing risks, maintain compliance, and have peace of mind. Typically, the features of a SIEM solution will include the following benefits:Log Management/ assets secure and satisfy regulatory compliance requirements, log management must remain top of mind for businesses. In fact, according to the Center for Internet Security (CIS), the collection, storage, and analysis of logs are Critical Security Control. Without a robust log management solution in place, organizations are likely to have gaps in visibility into their attack surface, leaving them susceptible to increased risks or breaches. SIEM solutions should include log management capabilities like collecting and storing rich event log data for every user and device connected to the network so you can have an accurate, updated, and audit-ready trail of network activity data at all times; handling speeds over 10,000 events per second to make accurate log collection fast and scalable; and storing logs in a centralized management database (CMDB).
