Despite the fact that organizations invest in all the available security technologies such as firewalls, IDS, Network Behavior and Anomaly Detection and SIEM platform to try and identify and stop threats, the number and impact and threats continue to grow. Security organizations are inundated with a lot of noise and their existing solutions are unable to keep pace with the complexity and sophistication of new attacks. How can they fill this gap? Security organizations need to use the vast amounts of data at their disposal to identify both external attacks and internal malicious behavior. They must find efficient and effective ways to identify real threats hidden in the “noise.” But that is just the beginning, how can they use all that data to respond faster and with greater precision?

• Key elements of a solution that are required to fill the gaps
• Combining existing defenses with analytics to increase their effectiveness in detecting and mitigating cybersecurity threats accompanied with example use cases

Register for this webinar to learn how to fill the gaps and identify the real threats through the alert “noise, prioritize them more accurately, and respond faster, with great precision.
