Submission SIEM Not Dead Yet: Two Big Acquisitions Today->

wiredmikey writes: "Contrary to what some people are saying, security information and event management (SIEM) solutions don't appear to be dead just yet.

Today, two acquisitions of leading SIEM vendors were announced, suggesting that SIEM is still important and very useful for enterprise security, and something many companies will continue to invest in in the foreseeable future.

Today IBM said it would acquire Q1 Labs, a Waltham, Massachusetts-based provider of SIEM solutions. Additionally, McAfee said it would be acquiring NitroSecurity, a provider of SIEM solutions with a special area of expertise in critical infrastructure security.

These two acquisitions, combined with HP’s $1.5 billion acquisition of ArcSight just over a year ago, make it pretty clear that despite some recent arguments and reports, SIEM isn’t dead, at least not yet."
