CSC Unveils Security Information and Event Management as a Managed Service
News Release -- September 12, 2013
Clients can rapidly deploy latest technology to meet forensic investigation, compliance and regulatory demands
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Sept. 12, 2013 – CSC today expanded its managed security services to include a full Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution managed through the company’s global network of security operation centers.
Businesses are under increasing pressure to both detect and prevent sophisticated cybersecurity threats. In addition, to facilitate forensic investigations and meet growing compliance and regulatory demands, businesses must maintain extensive records of security events. These needs are driving increased demand for enterprise logging and SIEM technology.
"During 2012, the SIEM market grew from $1.1 billion to approximately $1.36 billion, achieving a growth rate of about 23%", according to the May 7, 2013 Gartner, Inc. report Magic Quadrant for Security Information and Event Management authored by Mark Nicolett and Kelly M. Kavanagh.
“While organizations recognize the essential value of SIEM functionality, the complexity and resources needed to deploy it has been a deterrent for many,” said Samuel Visner, vice president and general manager, CSC Global Cybersecurity. “CSC’s solution allows companies to manage their security through our global team of certified security analysts and adopt the technology in stages, from enterprise logging to the most advanced SIEM capabilities.”
CSC’s service utilizes HP ArcSight technology and provides comprehensive collection, aggregation, storage and correlation of logs across multiple networked devices, systems and applications. CSC provides customers with the infrastructure, processes and personnel needed to monitor, report and escalate security events around the clock proactively.
