Organizations are spending millions on securing their network with a multitude of security solutions such as firewalls, anti-viruses and intrusion detection systems to name just a few. This paper explains why traditional solutions are still failing at detecting all attacks and breaches and what can be done to close this detection gap. It reviews the attack phases, and posits that the majority of security investments are devoted at prevention, which can’t be 100% effective. Beating the hacker hackers requires new detection strategy, available today in Active Breach Detection, which offers behavior-based attack detection, very high levels of alert accuracy and validation, and seamless ecosystem integration for remediation.
