IT practitioners have been confronting persistent cybersecurity problems for decades. Try as they may with point solutions and restrictive policies, the evolution of technology, user experience, and interconnectedness of networks gives threats the upper hand. Well into the 21st century, organizations continue to address network visibility, defense, and threat containment issues. Cyber tools and security operators are plagued by overwhelming network noise, mountains of false-positive results, and outright alert fatigue. IT networks continue to grow and change to solve new and emerging busines problems. This need for transformation results in new blind spots, encounters with unknown threats, and an array of aging and unsupported tools. Finally, with shrinking teams and shortages in highly trained personnel, IT practitioners are reliant on connected vendors and service providers, which further extends the cyber risk surface.
