Management Justification

All Security Products Need to Justify Themselves

Micro Focus ArcSight is certainly no exception. As information security gradually transitions from an IT-driven enterprise towards more of a legal, compliance and business results driven model, demonstrating the value of your ArcSight SIEM and SOC to management is becoming a critical issue. How many log records are you collecting and storing? From which platforms and network segments? How is ArcSight servicing your various compliance requirements (HIPPA, PCI, NERC, etc.)? How many, and what types, of correlated security events are you detecting? How are you handling them? How are you measuring analyst productivity and responsiveness? What types of threats are you detecting, and what are the major trends? These are all questions management needs answered to preserve your budgets and enhance the profile of your deployment within the organization. In today’s business-oriented world, continuous justification becomes critical.
