REPORT: Azure Sentinel & the cost advantages of a cloud-based SIEM (IDG)

IDG recently published a study around the cost advantages associated with cloud-based security information and event management (SIEM) solutions.  In summary:

  • Forty percent—lower staffing costs.
  • Forty percent—lower operational expenses (OpEx).
  • Thirty-four percent—lower capital expenses (CapEx).

For a broader discussion around these numbers, read this about the IDG study & how Microsoft’s cloud-based SIEM, Azure Sentinel, can help you lower your security costs while improving your security coverage & speed of execution.

The IDG report is available below, entitled, “SIEM Shift: How the Cloud is Transforming Security Operations”.

imageMany security professionals are realizing that their on-premises or private cloud-based security information and event management (SIEM) system can’t keep up—so they’re migrating this key security operations tool to the public cloud.

The IDG report, SIEM Shift: How the Cloud is Transforming Security Operations, delves into the results of a survey of 300 security and IT decision-makers to discover why more security professionals are moving to cloud-based SIEM. The report reveals that cloud-based SIEM:

  • Reduces SIEM costs by lowering or eliminating infrastructure, maintenance, licensing, and staffing costs.
  • Helps improve protection with AI and faster threat response.
  • Boosts SIEM performance, scalability, and stability.
  • Augments security teams with AI, reducing alert fatigue and automating common tasks.

Learn how your peers are strengthening their defense against threats.
