This paper will walk you through the entire process — from soup to nuts — of evaluating, selecting, and deploying a SIEM. We will offer pragmatic advice on how to get it done based on years working through this process as both consumers and vendors of SIEM technology. The process is not always painless, but we are certain it will help you avoid foundering on bad technology and inter-office politics.
Despite the title of this paper, it would be unwise to assume that SIEM replacement is always the answer — that is simply not the case. After this analysis you might actually feel better about your original SIEM purchase, with a plan to increase usage and make it a success. But you owe it to yourself and your organization to ask the right questions and to get answers. It is time to slay the sacred cow of your substantial SIEM investment, and to figure out your best path forward.
