As the number and variety of threats mushroom, an Ovum survey has found that security teams have become physically unable to respond in an appropriate way to the ones that actually matter, with 50% of respondents saying they deal with more than 50 alerts each day. Shockingly, for 6% of organizations, that figure rises to between 100 and 1,000 threats a day.
The solution? Ovum believes that security decision-makers should invest in centralized management capabilities, enabling them to control the disparate security tools in their infrastructure, and address the challenge of prioritizing the volumes of daily alerts they receive.

As the number and severity of cyberattacks continue to grow with no end in sight, cybersecurity teams are implementing new tools and processes to combat these emerging threats. However, the oneoverriding requirement for meeting this challenge is improved speed. Whether it’s speed of detection, speed of remediation or other processes that now need to be completed faster, the ability to do things quickly is key to effective cybersecurity.
The reason why speed is essential is simple: As the dwell time for malware
increases, the lateral spread of an attack broadens, the number of potentially breached files expands, and the difficulty in remediating the threat increases. And the stealthy nature of many of the newer threats makes finding them faster?before they become harder to detect?a critical focus in reducing the impact of an intrusion. These requirements make it essential that security operations centers (SOCs) can complete their activities
far more quickly, both now and moving forwa

Network operations teams can no longer ignore the application layer. Application experience can make or
break a digital enterprise, and today most enterprises are digital. To deliver optimal performance, network
operations tools must be application-aware. However, application-awareness in the network and security tool
layer is expensive and difficult to scale. Enterprises can mitigate these challenges with a network visibility
architecture that includes application-aware network packet brokers (NPBs).
EMA recommends that today’s network operations teams modernize their approach with full application
visibility. EMA research has found that network teams are increasingly focused on directly addressing security
risk reduction, service quality, end-user experience, and application performance. All of these new network
operations benchmarks will require deeper application-level visibility. For instance, a network team focused
on service quality will want to take a top-down approach to perfo

CyberEdge Group’s sixth annual Cyberthreat Defense Report provides a penetrating look at how IT
security professionals perceive cyberthreats and plan to defend against them. Based on a survey
of 1,200 IT security decision makers and practitioners conducted in November 2018, the report
delivers countless insights IT security teams can use to better understand how their perceptions,
priorities, and security postures stack up against those of their peers.
? Cyberthreat trifecta. Of 11 categories of cyberthreats, malware is the greatest concern for
responding organizations, followed closely by phishing and ransomware (see Figure 1).
? Healthy security budgets. The average security budget is increasing 4.9% in 2019 and
represents 12.5% of an organization’s overall budget for IT.
? Threat hunting obstacle. The top inhibitor to achieving effective threat-hunting capabilities is
the difficulty organizations are having implementing or integrating related tools.

"It’s no secret that the way people work has changed dramatically over the past few years. As highly distributed environments become the norm, security teams are scrambling to protect users, the growing number of device types they carry, and their data.
With more users, devices, and applications connecting to the network, the number of risks and vulnerabilities is also increasing — triggering a total transformation in the security landscape.
In this research readout, we explore the complex factors that make remote and roaming user security a challenge, and the emerging solutions best positioned to meet the needs of today’s increasingly distributed enterprise.Explore the complex factors that make remote and roaming user security a challenge, and the emerging solutions best positioned to meet the needs of today’s increasingly distributed enterprise.

Application performance and delivery have changed.
Should your network change too?
Cloud is changing the fundamentals of how IT teams deliver applications
and manage their performance. Applications are increasingly deployed
farther from users, crossing networks outside of IT’s direct control. Instead
of enterprise data centers, many apps now reside in public and hybrid cloud
environments. There are even new breeds of applications, built upon
microservices and containers.
Today, IT needs modern solutions that:
? Extend on-premises networks, apps, and infrastructure resources
to the cloud.
? Maintain high levels of performance, user experience, and security
across all applications, including microservices based apps.
? Sustain operational consistency across on-premises and
