Tune into this CRN Emerging Technologies Q&A for an overview of the channel opportunities in the fast-growing SIEM and security intelligence market.
In this video, LogRhythm's Ross Brewer talks market hotspots, how SIEM is evolving and whether resellers are making the most of a market now worth close to $2bn (£1.5bn) annually.
"The market is growing at 15 to 20 per cent annually so that represents a massive opportunity for resellers from a growth standpoint," Brewer says, pointing out that the market now boils down to just 14 players, only five of which are in the top-right of Gartner's Magic Quadrant.
The emphasis in the security market has moved from blocking attacks to accepting they will happen and spotting them quickly, a trend SIEM addresses uniquely by giving organisations full visibility over their infrastructure, according to Brewer.
"We continue to innovate in terms of machine-based learning, statistical analysis and behavioural analysis, so I agree there's so much more potential in our technology and in the space itself," he said. "The threats are becoming increasingly complex and you need to continue to innovate to keep up with that, and that's why we've seen since 2008 the Gartner Magic Quadrant drop from 23 vendors in our space to 14 this year."
