Gartner Hype Cycle for SecOps Reveals "Obstacles" for SIEM

The latest Gartner Hype Cycle for SecOps is a great reflection of the complexity and demands security teams are dealing with. As per Gartner, “Getting a SIEM to perform well against detecting attacks requires dedication and sufficient staffing. Under-managed SIEMs continue to plague many organizations.”

This report provides an overview of SecOps technologies in the context of a maturation timeline. The reality for most companies is that their SIEM deployments aren’t productive or efficient. One could argue that SIEMs are now more of a hindrance than a help in threat detection and response efforts. So why is it that SIEMs have become problematic for SecOps teams?

This Hype Cycle report covers:
  • The technologies available to support security operations
  • Why security analysts are overwhelmed by SIEMs
  • Why the SIEM market is entering the “Plateau of Productivity
  • Why SIEMs have been unsuccessful at rebuilding as a “SaaS SIEM”
Read this report to learn about the technologies intended to help SOCs stay on top of current threats, and equip themselves to deal with emerging (and future) challenges.
