Pricing for a Modern SIEM

Manage the Financial Risks That Arise When Data Scales Rapidly

Business growth generally creates excitement within an organization, but it makes the job of a CISO much more difficult.

It’s a challenge to budget for a security information and event management (SIEM) solution when big data volumes are unpredictable and growing at an exponential rate. Restrictive SIEM pricing models exacerbate this problem. CISOs are often forced to make difficult decisions about what data they will and will not protect.

CISOs and CFOs don’t have to live with the pain, frustration, and unpredictability of consumption-based pricing. In “Budgeting for a Modern SIEM: A Guide to Managing Financial Risk,” you will learn how to mitigate the security and financial risks that come with business growth, including:

  • Increased headcount: More people means more data, and more opportunities for social engineering or insider threats.
  • Infrastructure growth: Adding networking and hardware increases your log volumes.
  • Increased revenue: The more your organization is worth, the larger the target it becomes.
  • Modernization of IT infrastructure: Modern tools contain more data than legacy equivalents.
  • Cloud-first initiatives: Apps in the clouds generate more logs.

Your business must be able to grow without compromising security.

Chief information security officers and their teams should be focused on protecting their companies from damaging cyberthreats, armed with the visibility and data to do so effectively. James Carder, CISO and VP of LogRhythm Labs
