Frost & Sullivan:

The Digital Threat Management Platform Advantage

The digital threat landscape moves too quickly for security teams to rely on disparate tools that slow down investigations and complicate protecting the organization. The time has come to embrace the power of a digital defense platform strategy to simultaneously reduce cost and business risk.

In this Frost & Sullivan report you'll see how the RiskIQ Digital Threat Management Platform is being used in organizations today and the ROI benefits it delivers.

Key takeaways:

  • Organizations should be leveraging “force multiplier’ platform technologies that provide unified insight and protection against threats across the Web, social media and mobile apps.
  • A platform approach is the best way for resource-constrained information security departments to reduce both mean time to detection (MTTD) and mean time to resolution (MTTR) of digital threats.
  • Customer mini-case studies that demonstrate the platform capabilities and ROI achieved.
  • How the RiskIQ platform maps to the Frost & Sullivan Cyber Resilience Framework.

Summary


Frost & Sullivan research has shown that enterprises that are most resilient to digital threats follow the best practices outlined in the Cyber Resilience Framework. Yet, countering digital threats while cost-effectively reducing MTTD and MTTR means organisations must give up open source tools that security analysts have traditionally used. Although many of these tools are effective, they don’t facilitate collaboration and slow down security teams.

Moreover, when critical digital threats are revealed, such as the 2017 Apache Struts vulnerability, security team speed and precision are critical to containing and eliminating risk to an organisation. Not only does speed and precision facilitate cyber resiliency, it also markedly reduces security team hours on investigations. Experienced IT management teams understand that a reduction in hours reins in department expenditures and frees skilled analysts for additional tasks that protect the business and reduce its attack surface.

The digital threat landscape moves too quickly for security teams to rely on disparate, unconnected tools that slow down investigations and complicate the goal of protecting the organisation. The time has come to shift gears and embrace the power of a digital defence platform strategy to simultaneously reduce cost and business risk.
