We are pleased to present the results of Advanced Threat Detection with Machine-Generated Intelligence, sponsored by Prelert. According to the findings, advanced persistent threats (APTs) are of greatest concern to the companies represented in this research. However, they are falling behind in their ability to detect and prevent these attacks.
We surveyed 614 IT security practitioners in the U.S. who are familiar with threat detection technologies deployed by their company and involved in its advanced threat detection activities. The findings reveal that new solutions are needed because of a lack of confidence in their IT security team’s ability to detect advanced threats.
...the majority of respondents (59 percent) believe spotting the difference between abnormal and normal behavior is important to identifying suspicious artifacts in order to verify potential intrusions. However, only 38 percent of respondents say their IT security team can determine baseline or “normal behavior” in order to detect abnormal behavior.
