With advances in security, many organisations have grown their security estate organically with new appliances and technologies added over time. The result is an accumulation of disparate, siloed security tools and technologies.
Whilst each one has an important role to play individually, the overall picture is that security teams are expected to monitor and control a huge number of management views. It can become very difficult to get a clear picture of what is happening across the entire estate, identify risks and prioritise when and how to react to those risks.
The relevance of threats can also be lost, with individual events not considered to be a problem because the context is not provided by individual products.
Real-time threat protection provides an integrated approach to security allowing you to see and respond to threats immediately. An open security environment provides the operational core for efficient security system deployment, ongoing situational awareness, accurate incident response spanning endpoint and network systems, and policy-based threat management.
By integrating and correlating disparate data streams, solutions and vendors you can capture and extract the most meaningful information to take action on. These integrations help you get more value from your security investments by lowering risk, increasing visibility and enabling faster response to incidents.
