Enterprises today face a range of cyber adversaries. Amongst the most sophisticated are criminal organisations, competing companies and foreign governments determined to steal high-value information or disrupt critical services in order to inflict damage or gain unfair competitive advantage
It is almost impossible to prevent a determined, knowledgeable and well-resourced attacker from compromising an organisation. They will modify and re-modify their attack over weeks, months or even years to eventually defeat an organisation’s security controls. Their actions may go undetected for some time, but the damage can be considerable and lasting.
Many organisations have responded by proactively monitoring their infrastructure to detect attackers that have successfully gained access. The objective is simple: to find, investigate and respond effectively to attacks before lasting damage is done.
