NetWitness 12.3 delivers unrivaled network visibility for rapidly growing SASE deployments, patented cloud-native asset classification and ranking analytics, and efficiency improvements for administrators and security analysts. It also strengthens partnerships with key cybersecurity vendors, including Palo Alto Networks, Symantec by Broadcom, Splunk, ZScaler, Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service, AWS AppFabric, and widely used open-source security tools like FluentID.
Tackling Top Security Challenges
Here are a few of the most pressing challenges faced by today’s SOC:
- Hybrid Environments and Visibility: Real-time, cohesive insights into security postures across on-premise and cloud environments are essential yet challenging to achieve.
- Remote Work and SASE Architecture: SASE enhances security and usability but can create blind spots by obscuring the visibility of remote workers’ activities.
- Usability and Administration: High turnover rates in Security Operations Centers (SOCs) and large security solution footprints call for intuitive, easy-to-administer solutions.
- Dynamic Threat Landscape: The constantly evolving nature of threats requires adaptive security strategies for comprehensive detection capabilities.
- Asset Management and Prioritization: Discerning and prioritizing critical assets among vast amounts of data is essential for robust security measures.
Adapting to modern security challenges is more than just an operational shift; it can threaten a business’s very existence if not addressed proactively. Tackling these challenges necessitates a robust, flexible, and comprehensive security platform.
