Few things are as dynamic as cybersecurity. Modern networks have become increasingly sophisticated and complex. Today’s network extends to myriad devices fueled by a mobile workforce and more organizations are shifting workloads to the cloud as they move towards a more digitized future. A diversifying and expanding network has many advantages, but it also increases points of vulnerability, while simultaneously making it more difficult to see what’s happening across the network.
Security threats have also evolved rapidly in terms of scale and sophistication. Threats may come in the form of ransomware attacks or attackers might find their way into a network via credentials compromised during a successful phishing expedition.
