Not just a buzzword: Ebook reveals how global firms put security analytics to work

03 Jul 17

“Security analytics has gone from buzzword to obligatory application in a very short time.”

Organisations need visibility into their networks, especially when a breach has occurred. IT teams need to know where the true severities are so they can deal with the most critical alerts.

So how do you navigate the giant world of security analytics? Global heavyweights such as BT Security, the SANS Institute and Gartner share their insights in SC Magazine’s Security Analytics ebook.

Here’s a snippet from Gartner research director Eric Ahlm:

“There’s too much security data and the value of that data has been diminished with false positives and, simply, event overload.’’

He says organisations turn to security analytics to find the most persistent threats that have been missed by all other methods, “So visibility or the means to detect [a breach] is huge.”
