Rooted in prevention, platform security refers to the security architecture, tools and processes that ensure the security of an entire computing platform and its associated applications & data. It uses a unified security software suite across hardware and virtual systems, on premise and multi-cloud environments and leverages defined processes to execute the mission of an organization’s defined security program. Platform security is designed from the ground up to counter attacks before they manifest in an organization's environment.
Security platforms should provide incremental threat protection as tools are utilized collectively. Each tool will also act as a sensor for collecting telemetry. The platform should be back-ended by an advanced security analytics service that processes, analyzes, and acts upon this shared security telemetry. Security platforms must also offer well-defined and flexible options for responding to and mitigating threats.
The consolidation and integration of security tools into a central management console will enhance your ability to detect and respond to threats and improve the efficiency of security operations and analytics efforts. Intelligence analytics will help reduce the burden on security staff, improve their ability to investigate critical alerts and decrease the amount of time for incident detection. Minimize the impact of a compromise or breach by enabling the ability to identify threats across a broader range of your attack surface, reducing the time-to-detect.
The future of cyber security is about humans and machines working together to balance time and context. Automated defenses are enabled through orchestration capabilities and advanced behavioral analytics. ML can also perform predictive analytics. Together, ML, automation and orchestration can expedite and accelerate incident remediation. This improves security operations, enabling more value from existing tools and staff through greater emphasis on simplicity and efficiency.
By personalizing cyber security services to the top risks and compliance needs of your business, a managed security services provider can maximize your ROI while focusing on the most pressing risks and needs. A managed security services provider can help translate your business goals into effective security policies and controls that will help mitigate identified risks. They can also deploy and maintain leading-edge, advanced security technologies and help spread the cost of experienced staff across multiple organizations, allowing you to both save money, and get the necessary skills needed to run the advanced security technologies to protect your organization.
ePlus Consultative Service Offerings include:
SOAR is an acronym for Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response. It refers to a system that collects log, event and threat data from numerous sources and provides a single and cohesive view of what’s going on. It also is used to automate responses and corrective actions necessary to keep your network secure. This episode covers how incorporating orchestration and automation can help you.Listen to the podcast
