Advanced Analytics to Attain Risk Insights and Reduce Threat


Published on

Enterprises today are dealing with “it’s not a matter of if you will be breached but a matter of when.” Executives are taking an increased interest in their organization’s security posture and the impact on business goals and objectives—their job depends on it. Because of this, there is a need to quickly detect, prioritize and remediate information technology risks.

This presentation highlights how security professionals can leverage security controls and analytics to gain more visibility and business context, in order to protect sensitive data from breaches, vulnerabilities and threats.

  • We have a suite of solutions that are unique in delivering Security Intelligence-- detecting indicators of Breach, Compromise and Vulnerability.
    Our suite includes vulnerability management, security configuration management , file integrity monitoring and log intelligence.
    Real-time reliable data collection is critical in closing the cybersecurity gap—being able to respond quickly to the advanced level of attacks underway today is the only way to effectively minimize loss.
    No one has all the resources they need to fix everything on their network; being able to find and focus on the things that really matter to the business and create the most risk is critical—having relevant business context is the only way to connect your security efforts to what matters to your business and the risks you want to minimize.
    Automation—to apply intelligence and drive automation for more effective operations

  • The market for better security analytics solutions continues to expand as a number of high profile security breaches demonstrates the high cost of not protecting business-critical systems, data and applications. Current threats are complex and driven by very motivated adversaries. CISOs and CIOs are taking an increased interest in their organization’s security posture, making it more important than ever to tell a full story from the security and risk data embedded in modern IT security controls.

    In a recent Gartner survey of CIOs, analytics and business intelligence was ranked as the top priority. Forester views analytics as a top security trend for 2014, saying analytics will help better predict threats and protect data. Safeguarding the enterprise from dangerous events and attacks—without sacrificing innovation and growth—is essential. It requires advanced analytics, expert analysis, and swift remediation. 
  • Varied and disparate security risk inventories
    Uncorrelated and redundant data included in reporting
    Prohibits establishing a common inherent risk inventory
    No historical data for trending and forecasting

    Manual and inconsistent data aggregation and correlation
    Ambiguous and incomplete risk interpretation
    Resource and time intensive

    Subjective and non-standard security risk measurement
    Resources spent addressing non-prioritized issues
    Miscommunication and misunderstanding of risk across enterprise

    Lack of business context based reporting
    Limits business unit’s ability to understand and accept risk
    Inability to measure improvements and predict threats
    Reactive vs. proactive decision making
