PLANO, Texas, Nov. 1, 2022 — New offering goes above and beyond industry requirements to help maximize the value of SIEM investments — Critical Start, a leading provider of Managed Detection and Response (MDR) cybersecurity solutions, today announced the launch of its new managed service for Security Information & Event Management (SIEM). Available to new and existing customers, the new service is an add-on to Critical Start’s existing MDR for SIEM offering and supports Microsoft Sentinel™ and Splunk Cloud®. It simplifies the architecture and deployment of SIEM solutions to help organizations derive the maximum value from their SIEM investments for risk management, compliance and threat detection use cases, and holistically improve their security posture.
According to Gartner, “Managed SIEM has a compelling adoption rate as SIEM technologies are becoming more accessible and more mid-security-maturity buyers are entering the market having accelerated their security needs and maturity by adopting cloud-based IT.”1
“SIEM solutions provide important security benefits but are often complex in nature and challenging to deploy, tune, manage and maintain. As a result, security leaders may be prevented from deploying or enhancing SIEM technologies, greatly limiting the improvement of their cybersecurity maturity,” said Chris Carlson, SVP Product at Critical Start. “Our new managed service works cohesively with customers’ SIEM products to handle the heavy lifting associated with implementation and customization, including recommendations for log source tuning to lower SIEM ingestion costs while maintaining robust threat detection visibility.”
In addition to delivering all the requirements and optional features outlined in the 2022 Gartner Market Guide for Managed SIEM Services, Critical Start Managed SIEM experts help identify and continuously analyze log sources to ensure they are of high fidelity and provide the following value-added services:
