Cybersecurity Beyond the Network Reach
As threats are becoming more complex, targeted, and sophisticated, security operations centers (SOC) need a tool that provides context around threats and how the landscape beyond the perimeter interact with their network. Current Threat Intelligence: Evidence-based knowledge about an existing hazard designed to help organizations make inform decisions regarding their response to the threat. Platforms (TIPs) aggregate, correlate, and analyze threat data, but analysts need more to defend your organization. The modern-day SOC requires a threat platform that marries automated intelligence with human tradecraft.
In this Technology Spotlight, Chris Kissel, Research Director at IDC, discusses the gap in current security postures and the inner-workings of a sophisticated SOC that is able to address varied threat vectors, including:
- Benefits of a unified threat platform
- The importance of visualizing the entire threat ecosystem
- How to reduce false positives and improve SOC processes
