2.1

Title

Provision of a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Solution

2.2

Description of the goods or services required

The volume of security related and event information generated by systems on the University of Aberdeen network has increased considerably over the past decade. The ability to examine log files for relevant events and to correlate multiple log files is now almost impossible to perform manually.

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) addresses this situation. By normalizing data from each source the correlation processes are insulated from changes in the original data format. By storing only the relevant information, data can be kept longer facilitating forensic investigations for extended periods. There is also potential for generating real time alerts and because of the ability to correlate data there are fewer false positives.

The University has hundreds of devices and information sources; the ability to effectively process the data from these is only possible with a SIEM solution. As a result, the University of Aberdeen wishes to procure the supply, installation and maintenance of such a SIEM Solution.
