Better Security Through Early Detection and Response
- With the rise in cloud-based applications and third-party integration, early detection and response has become more important.
- To achieve the greatest ROI possible from their endpoint-security investment, businesses should also prioritize staff training and culture change.
“Whether it’s an attack or a phishing email, the earlier you detect and respond the less of an impact it’s going to have.”
Scott Harris believes that early detection and response are essential for thwarting attacks originating at the endpoint and minimizing damage to the business. “It’s very important. Whether it’s an attack or a phishing email, the earlier you detect and respond, the less of an impact it’s going to have,” he explains. Reducing the mean time it takes your team to detect a potential threat can save your organization considerable costs in the long run. “The average time that someone is in a network undetected is more than 200 days,” Harris says. “That’s a long time to sit there unaccounted for and exfiltrating data.”
