Security information and event management (SIEM) refers to software that monitor data traffic (both incoming and outgoing) from computers, servers, applications, and any other Internet-connected device or application that make up an organization’s network.

The SIEM system constantly analyzes this data and helps you decide if there is a looming threat or an on-going attack. This lets you take the appropriate steps to deal with these problems before they escalate. 

Using security information and event management (SIEM) software can be likened to having a watchdog on patrol to look out for security-related events.
