As security teams today become more focused on improving their detection and response capabilities, they're having to revisit technologies they rely on, as well as how they're using those technologies to combat threats and improve security posture. Few technologies have played a bigger role in detection and response than intrusion detection and prevention systems. Today these tools are considered \must have" controls for security and compliance, but are we using them effectively? Are we getting the right alerts, and looking for the right events and patterns in network traffic? How can we more effectively correlate data from IDS and IPS with other information and build a better security capability based on internal and external threat intelligence? In this webcast, we'll revisit the IDS and its evolution as a mainstay technology in our security arsenal. We'll also look at where teams are taking these tools using more effective processes and technology to improve detection and response significantly.
