Description: Security intelligence provides the critical visibility needed to detect security breaches and today's most sophisticated cyber threats. As evidenced by many recent high profile breaches, today's most impactful attacks are difficult to detect and often employ customized malware capable of silently bypassing existing security mechanisms. Security intelligence is key to detecting evidence of such a compromise.
Here's how it works: as an attacker, or the malware they have employed, begins to seek out its target, they will leave fingerprints as they move within the IT environment. These fingerprints can be found in the log and machine data that is generated and can be captured across the whole IT environment. With security intelligence, anomalous behavior can be detected, leading to the identification of advanced threats early in their lifecycle and prompting swift and effective responses and countermeasures before data is infiltrated.
A security intelligence platform that unifies traditionally disparate technologies including SIEM, log management, file integrity monitoring, host forensics and network forensics will position organizations well for the inevitable.
The job of an enterprise's chief security officer (CSO) is a difficult one. Devising a strategy that ensures the company's network and data are secure can be a daunting challenge. With high profile breaches like Target and Adobe making headlines recently, enterprise security has finally been brought into the public spotlight. This newfound awareness has put the pressure on enterprises to assure their customers that they are taking every measure possible to boost their security.
This leaves executives asking, where do I start? With so many different considerations to take into account, there is no single solution that will meet all the security needs of a given organization.
Here are the 11 essentials for keeping your enterprise secure.
