In Part 1, we built the case that SIEMs are ineffective for threat hunting, based on the following reasons:
To date, SIEM vendors have not provided the market with the functions needed for producing world-class threat hunting. Again, threat hunting is a method. In order to follow this method, we have to have tools that accelerate and amplify our human work, rather than using technologies that brush aside our method in favor of operating within their paradigm. Too many threat hunting programs are sputtering because we continue to believe that the method should conform to the technology, but that gets things backwards.
Threat hunting remains an undeveloped competency for far too many organizations. When surveyed, security professionals confess an overall lack of competency to detect and respond to advanced attacks that slip through their defenses. In my experience, many organizations still rely on alerts from a SIEM (among other prevention systems). Most security teams will painstakingly build models for indicators of compromise, receive alerts from their SIEM, and “do the best they can” to eliminate the intrusion. What are the results?
How do you know if your security posture is where it needs to be? Most organizations look at standards, be it national standards, industry standards or their own corporate standards. They may also look at their industry’s best practices. But if you aren’t looking at your risk vulnerability, you are likely not looking at the entire spectrum of your network’s security posture.

Summary of First Quarter Highlights:
FireMon, the industry’s leading provider of Intelligent Security Management solutions, today announced performance highlights for the first quarter of 2017 with customer retention and growth being key themes. FireMon also unveiled its vision for Intelligent Security Management, challenging customers to look at security from a new angle.
In its first three months of the year, FireMon’s new customer bookings grew by 60% year over year with 19 of the new customers added in the company’s fast-growing APAC region. Customer retention continued at greater than 90%, matching the industry-leading average for 2016. The firm credits this achievement to its focus on solving customer problems while reducing their operating expenses and risk.
“It’s clear that customers are finding value in FireMon’s innovative solutions,” said FireMon CEO Satin H. Mirchandani. “We have always been a customer-driven organization, and it’s evident in the retention and satisfaction numbers we put up each quarter. With our clear vision for a more intelligent approach to securing the networks of today and the future, I only see these numbers continue to grow in the coming months.”
To support its growing, global customer base, FireMon aggressively hired new employees across the United States, Australia, South Korea and Singapore in Q1. Part of this growth included the build out of a dedicated Customer Success Management team designed to help transition new customers from onboarding to support and work with end users to facilitate success.
“FireMon knows that proactively engaging with the end user is one of the most crucial steps to ensure a successful enterprise software deployment. The faster we can help the customer become operational the more immediate they see the return on their investment,” said Heather Surber, Vice President of Customer Success for FireMon, in her blog announcing the program. “Nothing has quite as much impact to the success of a software solution as the enabling the people responsible for using it.”
