A Defender Lifecycle Model is designed to automate and accelerate the identification and mitigation of threats. Focused on a foundational layer of pervasive visibility and four key pillars — prevention, detection, prediction, and containment — the new model integrates machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and security workflow automation to shift control and advantage away from the attacker and back to the defender.
Security Operations teams now face greater challenges in combatting data breaches due to the insufficient time for threat inspection based on the ever-increasing speed of network data, as well as the vast number of attackers and resources available to breach traditional defenses and propagate undetected across most networks.
This traditional security focus is increasingly ineffective and is hampered by limited visibility, extraordinary costs and reliance on manual processes to address incidents. A new approach to network security is needed.
