Executive summary

Cyber attacks are evolving rapidly. There are more attackers using ever more sophisticated tools, processes and collaboration techniques to breach security systems.

Most organisations have responded by increasing the level of investment in their security infrastructure and by extending the coverage of monitoring solutions to enable them to capture more data sources. They have also expanded their operations, hiring additional analysts to manage these monitoring solutions.

The result is diverse and fragmented security monitoring that produces unmanageable volumes of alerts and still fails to identify the most serious threats the organisation faces.

The majority of monitoring solutions are not suitable for the current security environment, making scalability a real concern as the data sources and volumes increase continuously.

To compound the problem, security analysts struggle to get a single view of their security estate and are not provided with the level of context required to act on alerts without significant data mining and investigation across tool sets.
