Building Intelligence-Driven Security Operations


Well organized cyber-gangs and targeted threats are emerging at an alarming pace, and security teams are hard-pressed to keep up with the growing demand for new skills and real-time detection and analysis of threat activity. Reacting to attackers’ moves manually is a losing proposition without highly automated and integrated security solutions. Intelligence driven security operations is rooted in continuous detection and response, adapting to findings in real-time, and using shared intelligence and analytics to quickly uncover patterns, anticipate attacks and respond decisively.
