Overview

Security vendors may promise the world when it comes to the capabilities of their products, but how do you know they will work as expected when the attackers come knocking? Without a strategy to validate the continuous health and operation of your data collection and security appliances you could be operating under false security assumptions with very serious consequences.

Building an effective security validation strategy can help guarantee, regardless of the constant flux of your business and IT infrastructure, that your Security Operations Center (SOC) will be immediately alerted to any sign of compromise. If you're searching for answers in this area, join this webinar where we will discuss the need for testing your security controls and key features in order to find a security validation solution.
