In the wake of yet another series of cyber attacks, this time involving a variant of Petya ransomware, it’s more evident than ever before that cyber criminals are outpacing security operations. While it’s tempting to blame security practitioners for not keeping up-to-date and fixing vulnerabilities, it’s important to remember that it’s not necessarily the vulnerabilities that hackers are exploiting – what they are exploiting is a complex security system that is challenging to fully oversee.
These days, security operations require multiple tools, processes and specific expertise. Solutions are often fragmented, cluttered, and full of duplicative and disjointed tools – and there’s a reason for that: organizations have been playing catch-up instead of approaching security challenges holistically. The result? Companies end up using a myriad of disconnected products that only create more noise and increase the already unbearable workload.
Many of our customers realize that it’s tough to tackle complex challenges with disparate products. At FireEye, we believe that these challenges can more easily be resolved with a single platform that provides holistic visibility across all security tools.
In our white paper, Simplifying Security Operations: Making Unified Security Accessible to Everyone, we discuss security operations platforms and their critical capabilities. Additionally, this white paper includes information about how a unified security operations platform can improve visibility into cyber threats, improve response time, and reduce financial and operational costs.
