The Problem

The overwhelming volume of global IP traffic hitting networks today creates a crushing amount of security alerts. Too frequently, many of these alerts go unchecked while the quantity of alerts increases daily. Additionally, security analyst teams are frequently understaffed and resources/expertise are scarce across the industry. Together this presents the biggest security challenge for security operations teams.

Two recent studies predict no end in sight unless proactive, innovative changes are made:

  • ESG’s 2017 research report on security operations challenges identify the volume of alerts and logs and the #1 challenge in security operations.
  • CISCO’s 2017 report ‘The Zettabyte Era’ predicts that that global IP traffic volume will continue to rise at staggering rates.
