Report Highlight

"The greatest area of unmet need is effective targeted attack and breach detection," according to Gartner report authors Kelly Kavanagh, principal research analyst, Mark Nicolett, managing vice president, and Oliver Rochford, research director. "Organizations are failing at early breach detection, with more than 92% of breaches undetected by the breached organization. The situation can be improved with stronger threat intelligence, the addition of behavior profiling and better analytics."
