The threat posed by cyber criminals seems to be growing larger and more sophisticated by the year and so does the spending on information security related products and services.
According to Gartner’s Q1 Information Security Worldwide Update, global spending on information security is set to reach $81.6 billion this year. They claim spending on security products and services will grow roughly eight percent year-on-year in 2016, as businesses continue to spend their way to being secure in the face of today’s ever so sophisticated cyber-attacks.
Companies are now shifting their sights on products that not only detect but respond to cyber threats that have already infiltrated the network.
“Organizations are increasingly focusing on detection and response because taking a preventative approach has not been successful in blocking malicious attacks. We strongly advise businesses to balance their spending to include both,” said Elizabeth Kim, senior research analyst at Gartner.
While defending against all cyber threats is impossible, with NNT’s comprehensive Breach Detection solution, your organization will be able to detect any breaches before damage is done. Today’s most notorious breaches have shown us that even with an armory of security solutions and correctly operated security best practices, you can never guarantee that a breach won’t happen to your organization. The best you can hope for is that you don’t get breached before you have been able to remediate.
Prevention measures are still essential and effective but do not guarantee systems are 100% hack proof. Host Intrusion Detection technology performs a vital contingency function, that if and when defenses are breached, you’re alerted and can take actions before the damage goes too far.
