Lack of centralized visibility hinders monitoring, investigations and response capabilities.

Security teams struggle with lack of visibility in their full environment. They rarely have a central way to ingest data to monitor their security posture across the entire environment. Siloed data makes it harder to monitor, detect threats, respond to incidents and report accurately.

Learn more about Security Monitoring

Security Monitoring is maintaining ongoing awareness of information security, vulnerabilities, and threats to support organizational risk management decisions.

MTTD measures the average time a SOC team takes to detect an incident or a security breach. A shorter Mean Time to Detect (MTTD) value indicates better performance. It showcases the ability of the SOC team to quickly detect and respond to incidents, minimizing the impact on clients.

Mean Time to Resolution (MTTR) MTTR is the metric used to evaluate the average time a SOC team takes to completely resolve an incident once it has been detected. A lower MTTR value indicates that their incident response process is fast and highly effective.

MITRE ATT&CK is a knowledge base of common tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) that documents the ways in which threat actors operate, ultimately serving as a playbook of TTPs seen and reported out in the wild. Organizations refer to MITRE ATT&CK to classify attacks, assess risk and improve their overall security posture to gain a better understanding of adversaries’ behavior, so that they can identify and implement relevant threat detections.
