Threat detection is the practice of analyzing the entirety of a security ecosystem to identify any malicious activity that could compromise the network. If a threat is detected, mitigation efforts are enacted to properly neutralize the threat before it can exploit any present vulnerabilities.
Threat Detection and Response (TDR) services incorporate advanced controls such as threat intelligence, malware analysis, and cyber forensics amongst others.
The key benefit of TDR solutions is their ability to automatically identify and respond to threats in real time.
By combining behaviour-based detection capabilities and deep visibility into data activity across endpoints, TDR solutions can catch threats that often go undetected by firewalls and antivirus.
TDR solutions are often used for building a baseline model of data activity across the enterprise, which can then be used to further refine detection of anomalous behaviour. Afterwards, they monitor the entire environment and sometimes utilize self-supervised AI to process data from multiple streams allowing to predict attacks and malicious intent before damage is done.
The solutions drastically reduce the number of security alerts, automate the threat and anomaly identification process, and help security teams identify and react in a matter of seconds.
