Automated Threat Detection & Response (TDR)

Automated Threat Detection & Response

IT infrastructures are increasingly diverse, and it often includes on-premises computers, mobile devices, cloud infrastructure, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices that can be attacked via a variety of infection vectors. Effective threat detection requires full visibility into all attack vectors, including the network, email, cloud-based applications, mobile apps, and more.

Threat Detection and Response (TDR) is the most important aspect of cybersecurity for organisations that depend on cloud infrastructure. Without the ability to recognise network intruders or other malicious attackers in real-time, cybersecurity analysts have no hope of responding quickly to security events and effectively mitigating damage.

Organisations should leverage automation to proactively search for indications of an intrusion in its IT infrastructure. This proactive approach to cybersecurity allows detection and remediation of previously unknown threats. An intelligent cybersecurity solution will govern that data, helping in-house security analysts identify suspicious activity. Alerts and triggers will typically be set up to help the team know when to take action.

The combination of human intelligence and automated analytical techniques such as behavioural analysis and other AI-based detection technologies is key to conducting effective threat detection and response. Together, they form a strong line of defence in a layered next-generation security system.
