24/7 Technical Threat Detection

Security threats don’t just stop outside of business hours or take a holiday. They keep coming around the clock, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. Detecting them in time is critical for an organization. In addition to your “human firewall” and security awareness education, consider also technical threat detectors such as:

  1. Endpoint detection and response (EDR), which monitors device behavior, such as the interal processes, fiel activity, and network activity of PCs, tablets, phones, and more.
  2. Network traffic analysis (NTA), which monitors nework traffic, looking for suspicious and malicious activity internally.
  3. Cyber threat intelligence (CTI), which looks at internal security incidents and cyber threat tactics and procedures.
