CISOS toughest battle:finding the right weapons to fight the last one percent of threats

CISOS toughest battle:finding the right weapons to fight the last one percent of threats (Expert Blogs and Opinion)

Traditional cybersecurity features, like ENDPOINT protection platforms (EPP), firewalls, app security, and intrusion prevention systems, which focus on prevention, are constantly being improved by active defense mechanisms, such as endpoint detection and response (EDR) tools, to provide relevant, accurate reports into security operations and analytics. Traditional EDR tools may seem like a security enabler, but without dedicated and staffed SOC teams, they may either hinder the organization’s security capabilities or make no significant contribution to the overall security posture. Timely detection of data breaches directly affects organizations in a positive way, as incident response procedures can be immediately triggered to contain, mitigate, and prevent full-blown security incidents that could otherwise financially affect the organization. With attacks becoming more sophisticated, advanced, and pervasive, companies are left vulnerable by the traditional set-and-forget security model; where organizations and business acquire but don’t continuously manage security tools or update incident response plans.
