Why Now

a cyberattack occurs every

Prevention does not provide the security coverage you require

Traditional approaches have major flaws.
The top 3 major flaws of traditional security approaches according to a Gartner Research note*


Lack of security training


It is assumed that widely-known threat vectors are covered by defense technologies that are often left in monitoring mode after unintended business disruption, due to false positives or misconfigurations.

Dwell time is an astounding 49-150 days (depending on industry) according to the 2020 Verizon DBIR.


Legacy approaches


Reuse old security approaches to secure new ways of conducting business.

68% of the time, security environments were not able to prevent or detect the approaches being tested.

Lack of the right tools


Spend disproportionate amounts of resources and budgets trying to block a threat that cannot be blocked.

Data exfiltration techniques and tactics were successful 67% of time.
