Cybercriminals are continually changing their attacks and techniques to stay ahead of security countermeasures. This continuous threat evolution has forced organizations to be consistently prepared to defend against something new at all times. Success relies on somehow anticipating the next threat to close the gap between its launch and being able to detect and stop it.
The challenge is that networks, devices, and applications being added to networks at an unprecedented rate, complicating the ability of organizations to see and manage their expanding security footprint. Likewise, the growing cybersecurity skills gap means that keeping up with advancing security challenges is stretching available IT resources to the breaking point. All but the most well-funded organizations are struggling to keep up, and even those rarely have the range of skills in-house to secure every new network system and device being added to the network.
