Proactively Confront Threats


Business Speed + Threat Environment Complexity = Reactive Measures

Network connections, apps, websites, social media, mobile, email and more – security threats come in from every direction. Adopting IoT, virtual environments and cloud applications are probably stretching your security program because it wasn’t built to align with your business operations. And then third-party open-source components add even more complexity, and “who does what?” in IT complicates the task of tracking issues. 


“It’s nearly impossible to detect and manage things across this ever-changing environment. You can’t fix what you can’t find, and hackers are getting better at hiding every day.”


Buying more tools as a reaction to specific threats can make integration and remediation more difficult. It’s a growing problem, and it doesn’t help bridge security and IT operations, reduce risk, or communicate ROI to the board.

It’s Complex. Reactive. And You’re Not Ready.

Here’s why your organization may not be aware of its complete risk picture from threats and vulnerabilities.

Infrastructure complexity

A growing and shifting attack surface, maturing attacker capabilities, new policies and technologies (that may not play nice with legacy tools), and not knowing who’s responsible for what and how, means lack of visibility to threats, significantly increasing the chance of a breach.

A reactive, compliance-driven approach

Your organization may be reactive to threats, opting for a tactical or compliance-driven approach, which can increase the frequency of attacks and recovery time.

Simple lack of readiness

The ability to quickly detect and respond to an incident dramatically affects how much damage can be done to your organization’s data, environment, reputation and financial well-being. You must have an incident response plan that you practice and hone as your organization grows.

Let's Proactively Solve Your Threat Management Challenges


Effective threat management is about knowing what your attack surface is comprised of, understanding where security gaps exist and what assets are most appealing to threat actors, and honing the ability to detect – while ensuring a quick and effective response.


It’s a stable four-legged stool. Remove any one leg … and it collapses.


As your organization evolves, new technologies and policies must be integrated strategically, not just deployed tactically (and perhaps even haphazardly) and compliance should be the result of the plan, not its entire purpose.
