Security teams face a dizzying array of threats, from ransomware and cyberespionage to fileless attacks and damaging data breaches. However, the biggest headache for many security analysts is not the endless number of risks that dominate news headlines, but rather the repetitive tasks they must perform every day as they triage incidents and attempt to whittle down an endless backlog of alerts.
This paper describes the thorniest challenges security analysts confront, including a deluge of alerts and complex investigation processes that can overwhelm even the most mature security operations centers (SOCs). It then proposes a framework to tackle every stage of security operations with Cortex® XDR™ for detection and response. As the specters of malware, targeted attacks, and insider abuse continually escalate, a tool like Cortex XDR can be your secret weapon to eliminate threats and simplify operations.
