Network Security Opportunity: Detection and Response

As part of our six-part blog series on network security, we earlier discussed the challenges around network security. Now, let’s talk opportunities, starting with detection and response.

According to Gartner, detection and response is the top security priority for organizations in 2017. To date, many companies have incorporated prevention-only approaches for cybersecurity when they really should be focused more on detection and response.  Why? Well, simply, prevention is pointless unless there are also detection and response capabilities to the cyber threats.

Because internal security assets are scarce, many organizations seek external help from security consultants, managed security providers and others. There is a plethora of new security detection and response services being offered on the market today. Detection and response services help organizations gain real-time visibility into all types of attacks, advanced malware, unspecified threats and/or unauthorized access occurring on SAP infrastructure and applications.

Sophisticated detection and response services can:

  • Alert when business-critical applications are under attack to reduce downtime risk
  • Protect information and processes critical to running the business
  • Proactively respond to attacks and prioritize remediation efforts

Go into 2018, well prepared!
