I was surprised to see the report from Mandiant that states the following facts -
By today i.e. 2016, 1/4th of large global companies are expected to have adopted big data analytics for at-least one security use case! (source: Gartner)
If you belong to the remaining 75% majority OR even if you are in the 25% but got it all wrong the 1st time around - please read-on
I was not surprised to see a report from Mandiant that said the following -
- 100% of the breaches had updated Anti-Virus software
- 63% of the breaches were reported by third parties
- It took 243 days to detect an attack
It is very clear that existing monitoring capabilities are no match for the changing threat landscape. The traditional technologies lack the sophisticated capabilities and visibility required to detect and protect against such advanced attacks.
So what is the problem ? and what are the options ?
