The Challenges:

Overcoming The Challenge of Evasive Malware Threats

For traditional security stack deployments, zero-day malware, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), and targeted phishing attacks can be especially difficult to detect and analyze. Third party validation is critical to ensuring that suspicious threats are not dismissed as false positives and released back into the enterprise.

Lack of SOC Automation & 3rd-Party Integration

SOC’s require solutions that do a much better job of recognizing false positives, flagging duplicates, and correlating alerts to assist in threat escalation help minimize alert fatigue and maintain sustainable SOC operations.

Manual Alert Triage is Time & Resource Intensive

Security practitioners and Analysts are overwhelmed with “suspicious” malware alerts – either genuine malicious activity or false positives – which cost valuable time and precious skilled resources to determine.

Alert Fatigue Impacts Incident Resolution

With high volumes of “suspicious” malware alerts to triage, security practitioners and Analysts can experience alert fatigue. High volumes of alerts cause desensitization to the resources tasked with responding to alerts often leading to missed or ignored alerts or delayed responses to critical incidents.
