ANN ARBOR, Mich., APRIL 6, 2022 – Blumiraa leading cybersecurity provider of automated threat detection and response technology, today announced the availability of the industry’s only free, self-service cloud security information and event management (SIEM) for Microsoft 365. Blumira also launched three new paid versions: Microsoft 365, Cloud and Advanced.
According to Gartner, security and risk management leaders increasingly need SIEM solutions with detection, response, and reporting capabilities. However, traditional SIEMs often lack effective detection and response capabilities and are too complex, expensive, and time-consuming to configure, especially for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
To address these issues, Blumira’s all-in-one cloud SIEM with integrated detection and response enables organizations of all sizes to achieve security in the fastest time in the industry, without the high costs and associated adoption challenges. with traditional SIEMs. Blumira’s platform can be fully implemented in minutes without any additional infrastructure using Cloud Connectors to achieve log collection, detection, and response in one easy-to-use solution.
“The complexity and price of enterprise security have kept solutions out of reach for many organizations that need to improve detection and response as threats increase and resources remain limited,” said Matt Warner, CTO and co-founder of Blumira. “This is particularly true for SMBs struggling to defend against user-based attacks, such as business email compromise or account takeover, while trying to address security gaps, blind spots and hacking hazards. threats that go undetected.
Organizations no longer have to wrestle with data volume ingestion limits or hidden charges that hamper security outcomes. With the free edition of Blumira, IT teams get security monitoring for Microsoft 365 with unlimited users and data. They also get access to easy-to-use detection and response, basic reporting, and continuous automated detection rule updates. Customers can easily sign up for Blumira’s free SIEM without a credit card or sales conversation.
To identify real attack patterns and uncover meaningful findings, Blumira’s behavior-based detections track malicious activity related to users, email forwarding, password changes, anomalous login attempts, and more. Blumira gives SMBs the benefit of offloading security management, adding and fine-tuning new detections to reduce noisy alerts, and providing meaningful insights to help teams take quick action to mitigate threats.
“In keeping with our company’s mission to make security accessible to a traditionally underserved market (small and medium-sized businesses), we are excited to launch a detection and response solution that potential customers can try on their own, at their own time,” said Jim Simpson, CEO of Blumira. “We’ve removed the barriers to entry that typically keep advanced security out of reach for organizations with limited resources.”
