Today, the cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving. Modern-day organizations must deal with complex IT environments with integrated value chains, a mobile employee base and massive movement to the cloud. Attackers exploit the weakest link in this complex environment to launch cyber-attacks of varying severity and stealth.
Organizations deploy a myriad of technologies to prevent these attacks and, in case of regulated industries, to remain compliant. There are over 40 different technology components that form part of the security ecosystem covering network, datacentre, cloud, application, email, data and endpoints. While this heterogeneous approach provides the best-of-breed technologies for protecting organizations, it also presents a large challenge to define, collect, collate, interpret, and define actionable intelligence that can help
organizations improve their security posture.
