SIEM / SOC Testing


Many organizations struggle with their SIEM/SOC security monitoring and detection systems. The initial setup is costly and difficult, while initially a large number of alerts is generated, or maybe none at all.


After fine-tuning the use cases, it becomes easier to manage and the number of false positives decreases. However, it is difficult to know if the systems see the events you want to know about. When a Security Operations Center (SOC) does not alert you to any security events, it could be there are no security events taking place. It could also mean the Security Incident Event Management (SIEM) solution is malfunctioning or certain attacks are outside the detection capabilities.In order to evaluate and test the detective capabilities of a SIEM, Secura uses a test platform named PurpleBox to (continuously) test and verify the functioning of the SIEM and provides the assurance that actual threats will not go unnoticed.
