The AIS Managed SIEM (Security Information Event Management) Platform supports threat detection and security incident response through real-time collection and historical analysis of security events from a wide variety of event and contextual data sources. It provides real time analysis of security alerts generated by network-connected devices and on-premise, Cloud, and SaaS applications.

WHY AIS MANAGED SIEM IS DIFFERENT

AIS combines access to an experienced team with an innovative approach to technology to eliminate the high cost and complexity when compared with existing Enterprise SIEM platforms.

  • Delivery: The SIEM can be delivered solely as a managed SIEM platform or as a turnkey managed service. AIS’ IT consultants can implement, configure, and maintain the SIEM, while its SOC team can monitor and respond to security alerts.
  • Technology: The platform architecture utilizes both proprietary code and open-source packages, allowing for efficient development that results in faster-to-market functionality and more robust product features.
  • Integration: AIS Managed SIEM is agnostic in terms of device brand and infrastructure architecture. It can aggregate information from network-connected devices as well as on-premise, cloud (AWS, Azure, etc.), and third-party SaaS tools, or even hybrid infrastructure architectures.
