Five Essential Requirements for Network Detection and Response (NDR)
A properly deployed NDR platform can help cyber security teams proactively identify and address threats to their organizations’ digital assets, through the automated detection of advanced persistent threats (APTs), malware, and dangerous violations of security policies. Perhaps the most important aspect of NDR is that it focuses on the network. Why is this important? Because the network is really the centerpiece of an organization’s security posture. Even as more organizations shift to cloud-based resources, encrypted transmission, and remote workforces, nearly all cyber threats generate communications that can be observed on the network. Furthermore, in many bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments and with the proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, companies simply can’t rely on endpoint detection alone to uncover threats.
