Today’s enterprises face new attack surfaces such as deepfakes and ransomware, while countering traditional threats like denial of service. It is well regarded that countering these threats requires the ability to leverage vast amounts of diverse data and derive real-time intelligence from it. In addition, increasingly the cybersecurity industry also recognizes the importance of “the human element”, and that technology alone isn’t the magic bullet for data-driven cybersecurity. This is particularly true for all the data operations required to build the latest cybersecurity innovation whether it be threat detection, endpoint security, network monitoring, or security analytics.
