Take Self-Guided Tour

In the comprehensive "2023 State of Threat Detection" report, security operations center (SOC) teams are facing a daunting challenge. The report, based on a global study of 2,000 SOC analysts, reveals a landscape where cyberattacks are not only becoming more sophisticated and fast-paced but also increasingly difficult to manage due to the sheer volume of alerts and the complexity of the technology available. Here's a glimpse of the critical insights you will discover inside:

  • The Alert Avalanche: SOC teams are inundated with an average of 4,484 alerts daily, with a staggering 67% being ignored due to alert fatigue and the high volume of false positives.
  • The Talent Gap: With a 3.4 million person deficit in the cybersecurity workforce, the industry is at a tipping point, exacerbated by high stress and burnout rates among SOC analysts.
  • Visibility Void: A significant 71% of analysts believe their organizations may have already been compromised without their knowledge, highlighting a concerning lack of visibility and confidence in current threat detection capabilities.
  • The Efficacy Enigma: Despite the challenges, most analysts consider their tools effective; however, the report suggests a disconnect between this belief and the reality of increasing blind spots and alert overload.
  • The Cost of Complexity: The financial impact is non-trivial, with manual alert triage costing approximately $3.3 billion annually in the U.S. alone, pointing to an urgent need for more efficient and effective threat detection solutions.
