The tools security teams have at their disposal have not kept pace with the demands of today’s data-intensive and threat-ladened business environment. As an example, many SIEM platforms are still based on decades-old technology and outdated data storage models.

At Panther Labs, we wanted to better understand what security practitioners feel they are, or aren’t getting from their current SIEM providers, so we commissioned an independent study to look into this.

To do this, we surveyed over 400 security professionals who actively use a SIEM platform as part of their job. This group included CISOs, CIOs, CTOs, security engineers, security analysts, and security architects.
