What the Latest Enterprise Security Trends Mean For Cyber Security

<p>New security solutions with advanced threat protection capabilities are driving advancements in cyber security in 2015 and beyond. Here, we’ll explain how these new technologies work and why they’re sparking a whole new era of <strong><a href="">threat intelligence</a>.</strong> Let’s dive in.</p><p><strong>Cyber Security Matters</strong></p><p>Advanced threats like ransomware, remote access trojans, advanced persistent threats, and zero day attacks are on the rise. This means that large companies and security professionals can no longer rely on using individual point products to stop them at each control point. The process of uncovering threat data across endpoint, network, and email gateways is time-consuming and manually intensive, giving cyber attackers an unfair edge on most control point defenses.</p><p><strong>Where New Innovations Come In</strong></p><p>It’s now possible to detect and remediate advanced threats across main control points from a single console with no new endpoint agents to deploy. This technology correlates suspicious activity across all control points and prioritizes all events, deciding which ones pose the most risk. This means that security professionals who are constantly on their toes trying to monitor and prevent cyber attacks can now filter out the noise and quickly discover and remediate an attack.</p><p>Companies that leverage these capabilities will have a more accurate view of whatever the main threats are that pose the greatest risks for their infrastructure.</p><p><strong>New Era of Threat Intelligence</strong></p><p>Before, a security professional would need to manually check to see if a suspicious file was properly blocked. With this new type of technology, the legwork is already done for customers, cutting down on their search and remediation time. Because of skill shortages today, security professionals need a mechanism that automates as much of their security operations as possible, and, in particular, detects and remediates threats quickly.</p><p><strong>Key Takeaways for Analysts and IT Managers</strong></p><p>The average enterprise uses 75 distinct security products, which creates opportunity for attackers because it slows down detection. You ideally want to uncover, prioritize, and remediate advanced threats across your control points – fast. With these new innovations, you can simplify and speed up <strong><a href="">cyber security.</a> </strong>Specific benefits for analysts and IT managers include:</p><ul><li>Faster and easier threat detection</li><li>Ability to prioritize risks</li><li>Faster and easier threat remediation</li><li>Less steps - enhanced efficiency</li><li>Time savings</li><li>Minimized risk of missing threats</li></ul><p>These security dreams coming to fruition will help analysts sleep sounder – or sleep at all! Make sure you’re using everything at your disposal to improve your threat detection and remediation processes so that not only your data is more secure, but you’re more secure in your job, as well.</p><p>Want to see who else is using cyber threat intelligence?
