Threat Detection

What is Threat Detection?

Threat detection is the process of identifying and quantifying a compromise or indication of compromise (IOC). Properly implemented threat detection includes preventive, detective, and reactive measures intended to block attacks when possible, discover and respond to intrusions quickly, and provide for rapid recovery and cleanup.

Why Does Threat Detection Matter?

Advanced malware, ransomware, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and other cyber attack methods have become one of the biggest concerns to organizations of all sizes, and it has become challenging for security teams to keep pace. The rapidly rising number and type of data breaches and cyber threats indicate just how sophisticated and persistent these attacks have become.

Experts urge companies to have a centralized and automated way to understand the IT assets they’re protecting and to analyze threats relevant to their organization 24x7. Only through enhanced visibility and actionable insight can you identify attackers or detect weaponized malware that will evade traditional signature-based security technologies such as anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spam and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS).
