The Advent of Advanced Network Traffic Analysis & Why it Matters

See Why Advanced Network Traffic Analysis is a Top Security Priority for Organizations in 2019

Over the last few years, so many of the breaches have shown that a prevention-only, perimeter-focused security approach is simply not going to be enough for an organization looking to manage their risk. As attacks have evolved to be long-running industry analysts point out that detection and response are now a top priority for organizations.

Simultaneously, we see the embrace of cloud computing, new DevOps processes, the sprawl of devices through IoT, and other such efforts lead to the lack of visibility—a key impediment in effective detection and response.

The answer lies in the network, which sees everything and offers a ground-truth reality that other data sources can struggle with. Rapid network detection and response ultimately lowers the amount of time an attacker operates in the network and thus minimizes the impact.

Detection and Response is Top Security Priority for Organizations

The shift to detection and response approaches spans people, process and technology elements and will drive a majority of security market growth over the next five years… While this does not mean that prevention is unimportant or that chief information security officers (CISOs) are giving up on preventing security incidents, it sends a clear message that prevention is futile unless it is tied into a detection and response capability.
