San Jose, California – November 24, 2022 – Vectra AI, the leader in Security AI-driven hybrid cloud threat detection and response, has released a report on “The Evolving role of Network Detection and Response (NDR)”. It highlights why today’s security teams find it increasingly difficult to detect and stop cyber threats targeting their organizations. The research found that 70% of organizations have fallen victim to an attack that used encrypted traffic to avoid detection. Almost half (45%) admitted they’ve fallen victim multiple times. Worryingly, two thirds (66%) still don’t have visibility into all their encrypted traffic, leaving them highly vulnerable to further encrypted attacks.
The report shows that cybersecurity and networking professionals are struggling against rapidly increasing threat detection and response workloads, preventing analysts from dealing with sophisticated threats. Key findings include:
“Organizations face a barrage of threats on all fronts – in their network, cloud and IT environments – while cybercriminals use techniques like encryption to breach firms undetected. What’s more, many don’t have the skills or staff to deal with increasing security workloads," comments Mark Wojtasiak, VP Product Strategy at Vectra. “To stem the tide against them, security teams need total visibility into their environments, so they can spot the signs of an attack before it becomes a breach. By empowering analysts with AI-driven Attack Signal IntelligenceTM, organizations can prioritize otherwise unknown and urgent threats that pose the greatest risk to the business. This improves analyst throughput by reducing alert noise, and arms them to reduce risk and keep organizations safe.”
The Evolving Role of NDR report – conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) – surveyed 376 IT, cybersecurity, and networking professionals responsible for managing network security for their organizations.
