Network traffic analytics (NTA) based on machine learning has become proficient at recognizing active threats at each phase of an attack lifecycle, to the point that security operations staff increasingly utilizeNTA insights when designing and implementing effective countermeasures. As enterprise networks become more complex and enterprise security is less able to control mobile endpoints, SOC teams leverage NTA in making better detection, response and prevention decisions to secure the business. When it comes to network security, machine learning is augmenting the role of human security experts.
