451 Research Identifies Top Market Drivers for Network Visibility, Detection and Response
According to 451 Research, Network Visibility Detection and Response (NVDR) is gaining momentum because it helps security operations better understand their environment, better detect threats before outsiders find them first, and better shut down attacks to minimize adverse business risks. 451 Research’s new report called Network Visibility, Detection and Response Modern Analytics for Today’s Threats provides a detailed drilldown on the benefits that are driving demand. Below is a brief recap of top incentives to deploy NVDR (note, some refer to NVDR as network detection and response (NDR)).
NVDR Market Drivers
- Aging intrusion detection and prevention products. Enterprise security teams justify NVDR purchases for multi-cloud transformations as a modernization effort for replacing aged IDS/IPS deployments, while satisfying clauses in compliance mandates.
- Unacceptable dwell times for attacks. The security industry recognizes that machine learning-based approaches that can detect threat behaviors may play a vital role in tactics that can reduce dwell times and their resultant business risks.
- The need to secure IoT, operational technologies (OT) and devices within industrial control environments. Intelligent devices lacking embedded security functionality – and without effective upgrade and patch paths – can be compromised and can put organizations at risk.
- The need to secure cloud-hosted applications without degrading performance and workload densities. NVDR learns the relationships between application elements, continuously monitoring network traffic to act at the first signs of trouble.
- The alert fatigue crisis. NVDR consolidates alerts into fewer, more meaningful incidents for operations staff.
- The opportunity for network and security operations to utilize shared technology. NVDR delivers operational data that provides a common ground for resolving problems across network and security operations centers (SOCs). The visibility afforded by NVDR is also often valuable to cloud and IT operations teams.
