Network Security Monitoring & ALerting (SIEM)

U nderstanding Your Network Security Needs

What is Network Security Monitoring?

For organizations that require real-time network monitoring and a comprehensive pulse on the current security posture, they leverage Technical Support International’s Network Security Monitoring & Alerting (SIEM) solution. Clients using this solution are provided real time reporting of what is occurring throughout their networks, who has access to their sensitive data and includes the reporting capabilities to track those activities or events. This service includes managed detection and response, and crisis support, log collection and retention that addresses the majority of today’s common compliance (CMMC, PCI, HIPAA) requirements for a predictable, cost effective price.

Security Operations Center (SOC)

SOC is an organizational function that is put in place to improve the organization’s security posture. SOC is 24/7/365 and staffed by real people that parse through thousands of logs to remediate any potential security issues/breaches. It’s important for many compliance requirements (PCI, SEC Cybersecurity Rule, NIST 800-171 and CMMC) that breaches are reported within a specific, very time-limited basis.

Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM)

SIEM is a software solution that collects log and event data. This information is generated by an organization’s applications, as well as its endpoint, network, and security devices. The SIEM collates data onto a centralized platform, where it is analyzed and the SIEM then detects threats and creates security alerts which can be investigated. SIEM is utilized within a SOC, and security analysts use them in their daily operations.

The Importance of Network Security Monitoring

  • Proactive Threat Detection: Identifies potential security threats before they escalate and prevents security incidents from reaching critical levels.
  • Rapid Incident Response: Enables swift and effective response to security incidents and minimizes damage, downtime, and financial impact.
  • Cost Savings: Investing in proactive monitoring is a fraction of potential breach costs, reducing financial losses associated with security incidents.
  • Reputation Protection: Timely response helps maintain trust and reputation.
  • Compliance Assurance: Meets regulatory requirements for timely incident reporting, helping you avoid fines and penalties.

W hat is Effective Network Security Monitoring?

Essential Components of Effective Security Monitoring

Effective security monitoring involves the continuous and systematic observation of an organization's information systems, networks, and activities to identify, respond to, and mitigate security threats. Here at Technical Support International, we prioritize three key elements for effective security monitoring:

Detecting & Preventing Malware

IDS monitors network traffic for suspicious activities or patterns that may indicate a security threat.

Unauthorized Access Attempts

SIEM collects and analyzes log data from various network devices and applications.

Monitoring Network Behavior

Firewalls and IPS block unauthorized access and filter malicious traffic, preventing unauthorized access.
