What Is Security Analytics?
Security analytics uses data and log analysis to make the indications of compromised systems, traffic and events easier to identify. For cybersecurity professionals, this is a must to ensure that operations remain compliant and secure.
An effective security analytics platform must be well suited to the data collection of large amounts of structured and unstructured data, complex data sets and variations of log files.
This data can easily range from endpoint and user behaviour data, through to cloud application activity and identity and privileged user management data.
Once this data has been parsed and processed into a human-readable format the same platform should allow for alerting and notifications to be set up. An additional benefit to the user is the ability to freely export data to complimentary tools and ticketing systems.
In an ever-changing business environment, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict where the next security breach will originate from, but with effective monitoring and analysis tools in place, you can ensure that you are in the best possible position to detect potential threats as they occur.
