Overview

The truth: Enterprises have invested billions of dollars in security upgrades. The reality: This hasn't stopped cyber attacks from penetrating their existing defense mechanisms. Cyber attackers find new ways to exploit gaps in existing security infrastructure every day.

At the same time organizations are inundated with an increasing volume of data (big-data) and face a severe shortage of skilled security analysts required to analyze the said data for detection, diagnosis and resolution of threats.

What is the answer? It is obviously not the status quo. This problem cannot be solved by another rip and replace of one's existing infrastructure or by throwing an army of analysts into the mix.

This webinar will discuss the gaps that exist in today's security infrastructure that prevent the timely detection, complete diagnosis and accurate resolution of cyber threats. Attendees will learn about a new approach and technology that will help close those gaps by providing the missing intelligence to the existing infrastructure. It's time to make your security infrastructure smarter than the attackers!
