The Challenge

The cyberthreat landscape is growing. Detecting and defending against attacks or attempts to discover, modify, deactivate, destroy, steal or gain unauthorized access to an organization's data is a full-time job for SOC (Security Operation Center) employees. In addition, classic Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) solutions can no longer keep pace with the speed and complexity of current threats.

1 What is Apache Kafka®?

Apache Kafka is a community distributed event streaming platform that can handle trillions of events per day. Kafka was originally designed as a messaging queue and is based on an abstraction of a distributed commit log. Since Kafka was developed at LinkedIN in 2011 and placed under an open source license, it has quickly evolved from a messaging queue to a full-fledged event streaming platform.

Founded by the original developers of Apache Kafka®, Confluent provides the most complete version of Kafka with Confluent Platform. Confluent Platform enhances Kafka with additional community and commercial features designed to improve the streaming experience of both operators and developers in production.

2 SIEM Solutions

SIEM solutions play a central role in protecting against cyber attacks.
The use of Security Information and Event Management Systems (SIEM) is THE measure for a company's Security Operation Center (SOC) against ever-growing threats that make daily work in the SOC difficult. This is because events must be detected in real time across all departments and compliance requirements must be met. The speed and complexity of cyber attacks is constantly increasing. The resulting high number of false alarms leads to delayed reactions to real attacks and thus increases the security risk.

From medium-sized to large companies, a wide variety of SIEM solutions are used as software, appliances or as SIEM aaS from the cloud.

3 Your Business Benefits

The NetDescribe and Confluent Platform solution enables organizations to increase cyber resilience and operate cost-effectively despite growing cyber threats.

Given the improved quality, increased flexibility and reduced costs of SIEM / CSAP, the true business benefits are measured in risk avoidance - which can be hard to quantify, much like spending on insurance premiums.

Also, by improving the SIEM platform, customers can achieve regulatory compliance given by BAFIN, BSI and other organizations.
