It seems like everywhere you look the impact of menacing cyberattacks has become headline news. Check Point’s Mid-Year Report recently revealed a 42% global increase in cyberattacks and ransomware is now the number one threat to businesses.
With the increase in attacks, security teams are faced with the distraction of endless alerts and false positives across multiple siloed tools. The problem is compounded by an ongoing skills shortage. Sophisticated attacks have altered the cyberthreat landscape to where innovative approaches are now essential to an organization’s security foundation.
One such approach is prevention.
Rather than after-the-fact discovery found with traditional methods, a proactive prevention security strategy is key to offering robust detection, response and hunting capabilities to stop breaches before they can cause harm.
Many organizations have relied on a security operations center (SOC) to provide 24/7 monitoring and threat response. However, detecting threats across the entire IT infrastructure can be painstakingly difficult. Information must be pieced together from various siloed tools while navigating through an endless array of daily alerts. SOCs can also become complex and expensive to operate, and although they supply detection and response capabilities, preventing attacks is not a core strength. The result: Critical attacks can be missed and damage organizations.
So, what’s the solution for these security operations challenges?
Managed Detection and Response (MDR). A solution that can monitor security landscapes every second, minute and hour all year around. A comprehensive MDR will cover the entire infrastructure of network, cloud, endpoint, email, and more while using powerful threat intelligence and AI technologies. As a service offering, its strengths are even more compelling.
