Attackers these days get hold of critical enterprise information by exploiting identities, endpoints, or applications and move stealthily across the domains for a long period of time. They remain invisible, establish their foothold, and move laterally in enterprise’s environment to get access to important information. Even if we have security controls in place for each landscape, they often work in silos and keep sending alerts which are enormous in volume.
To manage all the alerts and make sense of them takes a lot of time and puts a lot of pressure on the security teams. The alert fatigue caused by a huge number of alerts that need to be normalized and analyzed, in a timely manner, may lead to some important alerts getting ignored. On top of that, different teams work in different domains in isolation, which causes failure to put a context to a security alert leading to a disruptive hack completely ignored.
