CSO Vendor Scorecard: Security Information & Event Management Research


Security strategy is an integral part of business growth and success. In order to create a better picture of where organizations are in their adoption of specific security technologies, CSO conducted the 2016 Vendor Scorecard: Security Information & Event Management research. The study outlines the adoption of SIEM, and the vendor characteristics needed to achieve their business goals.

Key findings:

  • Organizations say that SIEM technology is critical/very important (76%) when facing threats and attacks, with enterprise organizations reporting a greater degree of importance (84%). (Click to Tweet)
  • Security users are generally aware and familiar with SIEM vendors, but a small percentage report to actually know a lot about them and the services they offer. (Click to Tweet)
  • The majority of organizations with an SIEM solution installed plan to continue their use of that vendor. (Click to Tweet)
  • Effectiveness, integration with existing systems, ability to enable automation, and customer service/support are the most important characteristics when evaluating SIEM vendors. (Click to Tweet)
  • The top deterrent for not using or considering a vendor is lack of awareness or not enough information. (Click to Tweet)
