Today's information security teams increasingly rely on security systems with big data capabilities. In order to seek out and detect today's complex advanced persistent threats you need to monitor network, host and application behavior across your organization's IT data.

Read this white paper to understand the evolving security landscape and how advanced persistent threats and sophisticated malware have fundamentally changed the way security teams must think about these new threats and the tools used for detective controls.

This paper discusses the best practices for this new security approach, including:

  • Using detective controls linked to data analytics watching for behavioral outliers.
  • Seeking model and dissect attack patterns.
  • Developing deep understanding of attackers' modus operandi in context with the organization's key assets and IT environment
