It’s Becoming Nearly
Impossible to Defeat Cyberattacks

… And the Attack Surface Continues to Grow:

Why a Strong Defense is Getting Harder

Modern attacks are multifaceted, progressive and involve
a broader attack surface

Organizations attempt to find attacks using a variety of siloed tools, each with its own detection and response system tailored towards part of, but not the entire attack surface.

Each tool generates a lot of data, requiring human analysis. Small signals that might be important can easily be overlooked and there are gaps between tools.

Security operations are specialized, each tool needs an expert. Teams must manually stitch together findings to identify an attack.
Each finding has to be manually integrated by overworked, understaffed security teams to discern an attack. Skilled people are in short supply. Over 3.5 million open jobs in Cybersecurity globally.
