The Numbers Game: How
Many Alerts are too Many to Handle?
In a recent analysis of threat management,
FireEye learned that large enterprise companies rely on security
personnel to fulfill multiple roles and responsibilities – an
expectation that can prove disastrous when it comes to finding and
escalating a critical alert.
This special report is based on a
worldwide survey conducted with large enterprises. The report contains
statistics that clearly show security personnel at all levels face the
unenviable task of wading through too much data, false alarms and
duplicate alerts – which means the real risk isn’t only that attackers
will breach a network … it’s that it won’t be discovered and dealt
with in time. While security teams comb through mounds of noisy data
and cull out many alerts, too many still need to be addressed at the
upper levels, making an already cumbersome process virtually
impossible to manage.
This report details the survey results of
all aspects of alert management – covering where alerts originate, how
they’re categorized, and how they’re managed – and how the process can
increase the likelihood of a breach being successful.
