Finally, I'm looking into upgrading my security information and event management (SIEM) tool. I'm currently using an inexpensive SIEM product from Cisco that used to be the best but has gradually fallen behind other commercial products, into abandonment.

How can I meet my business needs while spending a reasonable amount of money? That is the question.
While replacing technologies that I already have instead of bringing in new ones is all fairly new to me, I'm applying the same principles and approach I've always used for evaluating options. And I'm looking forward to taking advantage of the newest inventions (that I can afford) for managing network security.
