Everyone is capable of selling stuff. We go further than that.
One of the biggest banks in the Czech Republic was not satisfied with monitoring and reporting in the field of security. The current SIEM (System for Monitoring and Security Event Management) was generating rather false events. Reports gained from it were used for the needs of the Czech National Bank only. The bank organized a tendering procedure for taking over the daily maintenance of the current system. Part of the cooperation was supposed to be ensuring the transition of SIEM to a new version. Among five addressed companies AEC won.
We got rid of the basic system problems at AEC and we executed an update to a new version. Together with the bank’s IT department, we also prepared a concept of SIEM development for the following time period. Our team works together on connecting heterogeneous IS platforms on a daily basis. SIEM became a powerful tool for monitoring the information security of the bank due to the reporting of correct events, and a significant improvement in reporting and processes.
Today, this solution is the hub of a collection of aggregate reports in the network, and it provides information about the current state of the security of operation. SIEM is no longer only used by the bank's IT department, but, thanks to the clarity of the reports, the management started to work with its outcomes as well.
