Solarwinds’ Brandon Shopp: Hybrid SIEM Platform Could Provide Agencies Visibility Into IT Environments

Brandon Shopp, group vice president – product at SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), said agencies need comprehensive visibility and control over their information technology systems through continuous monitoring of on-premises and cloud environments to help prevent security vulnerabilities and other cyberthreats.

Shopp wrote that agencies looking to gain visibility into complex IT environments should adopt a hybrid security information and event management platform.

“Agencies must be able to understand the potential weaknesses and vulnerable entry points in their IT environments. They should make sure they have visibility into the security health of their systems so they can achieve insights that are as comprehensive, broad and deep as possible,” he said.

“This means deploying a hybrid SIEM tool capable of understanding and incorporating data from on premises and in the cloud into a single, comprehensive view,” Shopp added.

Shopp cited the shift of organizations to zero trust-based strategies and agencies’ adoption of endpoint detection and response tools as they work to protect mobile phones, laptops and other endpoint devices accessing the network.
