An IDC Research Report shows that companies are the target of cyber-attacks every day and IT teams are struggling to deal with all the cyber issues. According to IDC, IT Teams are side-tracked by lengthy security investigations and are not able to adequately protect the system. Mike Patterson, CEO at Plixer commented below.
Mike Patterson, CEO at Plixer:
“Despite investments into the most sophisticated threat detection systems, the volume of alarm triggers is a tsunami that most IT teams can’t swim through. Security teams are already overburdened with investigations and struggle to keep up with sleuthing every odd behavior pattern. This is why investigations need to take place quickly and include the contextual details that requires cross system integration. Optimized Network Traffic Analytics is key to gaining insightful deterministic information on every event. This traffic information automatically culled from around the network and analyzed from one major database, shows IT teams where the intruder gained access to the network, where they went and what information was accessed. This insight allows security teams to spend more time on learning from system shortcomings and building stronger defenses.”
