When threat actors are able to stealthily penetrate an organizations defenses, the promptness of detection is critical to protecting critical information assets. The sooner that one can detect an inside-the-network threat, the easier it is to mitigate the damage from threats that have bypassed prevention systems. According to a cybersecurity report by Ponemon Institute, financial firms take an average of 98 days to detect a data breach and retailers can take up to 197 days. With more than 700 reported breaches occurring annually, being able to promptly detect threats becomes a critical line of defense in preventing the exfiltration of data, and/or potential harm to critical infrastructure or a company’s brand reputation.
