Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) vendor SenSage has opened up its data to third-party business intelligence (BI) tools and dashboards, enabling organizations to leverage its security data with business data analytics and create highly customized reports. The latest release (version 4.6) supports Open Database Connectivity/Java Database Connectivity (ODBC/JDBC) APIs, allowing integration of SenSage's data warehouse with BI products through SQL queries and/or the BI tools more user-friendly query wizards.
"What I call vendor promiscuity," said 451 Group analyst Andrew Hay, "opens up opportunities for people to extract the data they need to get the job done and not be constrained by the vendor interface."
While SIEM vendors are known for their ability to import data from many sources, and, in some cases, open data to technology partners, they have not allowed their data to pulled in on demand using open standards. Hay thinks that more SIEM vendors will move in this direction as long as they can protect their intellectual property.
