Elevate Your SIEM: Unleash the Power of SIEM Augmentation

Apto Solutions provides expert professional consultancy to enhance your SIEM effectiveness, solidify security confidence and improve ROI


Why SIEM Augmentation? With the ever-changing threat landscape and increasing size of cyber and operational data, it’s never been more important for organisations to have tools that assist with this challenge. Many companies opt for a SIEM tool, such as Splunk or Sentinel to provide that reassurance.

However, many companies struggle with a lack of sufficient internal resources to get the most out of a SIEM once they have one; whether that’s down to the recruitment of knowledgeable engineers, the correct technology or well-defined operational processes. Whether you are migrating to a SaaS SIEM, another SIEM, or simply do not have a dedicated function to maintain and monitor your SIEM, you are at risk.

If you are not on top of your SIEM and threat management domain, then the risk of data breaches and reputational and financial damage becomes more likely. Outsourcing your threat management isn’t the answer to these issues either; the risks and threats are still very much yours to own.  This where SIEM Augmentation can help.

SIEM augmentation involves partnering with dedicated experts with significant experience that complements your in-house knowledge. SIEM augmentation can be categorised into two specific types: 

Team Augmentation

Typically used for projects and programme rollouts; staff augmentation is focused on providing skilled, experienced SIEM experts to integrate with your existing teams and who can support with implementation, migration, onboarding, upgrading and more.

Operate Augmentation

Not to be confused with a SOC; operate augmentation involves working with a trusted external SIEM expert and then taking ownership and responsibility for the platform, covering all of the required ongoing work such as data, performance, analytics, reporting and content management.

Combining, one or both of these approaches together allows for the comprehensive deployment of a supportive, externally verified team that meets your exact business needs. It offers flexible and scalable solutions that establish the best tools, practices, and assessment frameworks to support your company’s existing team and help improve confidence and performance in your security posture.

Augmentation Use Cases

  • On-premise SIEM to SaaS SIEM
  • In-house to external SOC and vice versa
  • Bespoke SIEM support anywhere in the SIEM journey/lifecycle
  • Product migration from another platform to a modern SIEM
  • SIEM Augmentation management at scale for operational and content management
