NETWORK VISIBILITY IS KEY TO DEFENDING AGAINST ADVANCED PERSISTENT THREATS
APT groups are constantly seeking new targets and evaluating opportunities for data espionage, sabotage, and theft. One of the keys to mounting a robust defence is cyber security visibility.
WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT TOOLS FOR NETWORK VISIBILITY AND APT DEFENCE?
The more you can see, the more you can understand. The more you understand, the more informed you can be when attempting to identify and mitigate threats. But how can you fight APTs when you don’t have all the pieces of the puzzle?
COMPLETING THE CYBER SECURITY VISIBILITY PUZZLE
As you’ll see in our infographic below, without the right tools and comprehensive visibility across a network, you can’t see the full picture…
Without up-to-date threat intelligence, for example, understanding which network flows are malicious becomes an even bigger challenge.
Without an efficient Intrusion Detection System (IDS), you can’t hope to remove the noise and provide threat hunters with relevant information.
And without the ability to extract metadata from every flow, you can’t analyse network traffic in real-time or apply JA3 fingerprinting techniques to identify threats hiding inside encrypted protocols.
