Aberdeen Group has released a new report which shows that quick detection and remediation of a cyber attack can lead to double-digit reductions in the business impact. Bob Noel, Director of Strategic Relationships and Marketing at Plixer commented below.
Bob Noel, Director of Strategic Relationships and Marketing at Plixer:
“For decades, organizations have focused their budget and resources on technologies intended to prevent security incidents. Based on modern complexity and the increasing threat surfaces driven by mobile and IoT, complete prevention is not possible and breaches are inevitable. Aberdeen’s report should be a wake-up call to the board room that security strategies must change. Organizations must invest in network traffic analytics, which collects and correlates flow and metadata from all across the network, delivering data context instead of just an avalanche of log information. This centralized data, delivering rich context to IT, enables organizations to effectively support incident response for network and security incidents. Time to resolution is paramount, and with the growing velocity of breaches, strategies must shift from a primary focus on prevention to one of effective incident response.”
