Managed Security Monitoring
Security Monitoring is the next “must-have” in security. Without monitoring your systems and their logs, you will not know if there is a problem or not. Pandora Security Labs’ Security Information and Event Manager (SIEM) is the heart of our managed security monitoring (MSM) service. Our SIEM is set to accept logs and events from our
clients, and then we process them to identify and any potential malicious activity. With our advanced correlation engine to correlate information from your diverse set of systems, we are able to detect new and evolving threats.

Behind the SIEM are certified security analysts who continually (24×7) monitor your network and systems to assure that you are always secure. In the event of an incident, our certified security analyst conducts standard incident handling procedures and informs the client of the best practice to prevent such incidents from happening.

With our MSM platform, we complement your IT department by being your incident response team (IRT). We’ll be the one who monitors every event in your network, and respond to any incident regardless of the time of the day. We provide you with rich and crucial reports such as compliance reports, incident reports, and event statistics
report that is readily available to you in your own Pandora SIEM Client Portal to help your IT administrator.
