3. Intelligence: In an age when hackers are conducting extensive reconnaissance before launching attacks, security intelligence is critical to defeat attacks. Technologies that tap into the power of the cloud and big data analytics deliver the security intelligence organisations need, continuously tracking and storing information about unknown and suspicious files across a widespread community and applying big data analytics to identify, understand, and stop the latest threats. Not only can this intelligence be applied to retrospectively secure a company's environment, mitigating damage from threats that evade initial detection, but it can also update protections for more effective security.
In a world in which attackers seem to be gaining an advantage, defenders need to fight fire with fire. Security technologies that enable visibility, automation and intelligence can help break the attack chain and foil attacks.
