As adversaries - whether criminal or otherwise - make use of increasingly sophisticated attack methods, network defenses have not kept pace; they remain focused on signature-based, reactive measures that close the barn door after the horses have escaped. Automated threat detection offers the opportunity for truly proactive network defense, by reducing the amount of time an intruder remains undetected and introducing remedies earlier than otherwise possible. Automation can also enable better use of scarce resources and reduced exposure to network-based threats. This webcast discusses how to automate the hunt for network threats and move an organization's security posture to the next level.
