When a small oil and gas manufacturing company needed security monitoring without breaking budgets, Blumira free SIEM proved its worth by catching a malicious app attack on Microsoft 365. Thanks to an automated alert, the lean IT team swiftly responded to prevent data loss.
Seeking visibility beyond their RMM, the company’s IT admin explored multiple SIEM options but found many required extensive coding skills and lacked ease of use. Stumbling upon a Tom Lawrence video review of Blumira, the admin decided to try the free edition for its simplicity and out-of-the-box detections.
Soon after integrating Office 365 logs, Blumira notified the admin of suspicious application consent on a user account. He quickly contacted his team to investigate, confirming the app’s malicious intent to steal data. By removing the app and securing the compromised account, major damage was averted.
As the relieved admin put it, “If it weren’t for Blumira’s notification, this incident would most likely never have been detected until it was way too late.” For their budget, Blumira delivered rapid time-to-value with critical security insights not included in the company’s own Microsoft services.
Like this small company, modern organizations need advanced threat detection without adding more staff. Prioritize solutions that automate monitoring, alerting, and response while seamlessly fitting the technical skills of your current team. With the right platform, even small IT teams can get enterprise-grade protection.
