The days of pretending that your networks will never be attacked are over, so what do you do to detect intruders and the advanced persistent threats (APTs) they employ? Current processes are too manual and disjointed to scale; alerting facilities typically throw too many false alarms and an overemphasis on dashboards has done nothing to ease the demands on response teams that are already constrained by insufficient resources and an overwhelming number of APTs at the gate. A new network security approach is needed, one that focuses on the three core concepts of detection, containment and control. These pillars of security lend themselves to tangible metrics and effective monitoring, two things that many IT security teams lack.
