Enterprises today lack the skills and technology to address the latest cybersecurity threats:

  • 84 percent of advanced persistent threats took seconds, minutes or hours to compromise targets (2013 Verizon Data Breach Report).
  • 78 percent of threats took weeks, months or years to discover.

Today’s enterprises are experiencing material security breaches because of an organizational gap between day-to-day security operations and advanced security operations teams.

It’s no secret that IT security threats keep evolving. Today’s advanced persistent threats (APTs) are increasingly sophisticated, diverse, targeted, aggressive…and successful. Security breaches still happen at an alarming rate, despite the fact that security technologies and processes keep evolving too. The lack of in-house enterprise expertise highlights an organizational gap that exists between the day-to-day operations team and the advanced security teams that contain and resolve incidents. This gap is worsened by the tendency of traditional advanced threat solutions to operate in a silo – and not share new threat intelligence across the security environment.
