The Forrester Wave™: Security Analytics Platforms, Q1 2017
Security analytics platforms give S&R pros the ability to detect, investigate, and respond to cybersecurity threats.Forrester surveys indicate that 74% of global enterprise security technology decision makers rate improving security monitoring as a high or critical priority. Advanced detection technologies like machine learning and behavioral anomaly detection identify threats without the need for rules or signatures.
SA solutions ingest and correlate data from multiple disparate sources such as applications, data loss prevention (DLP), endpoints, identity and access management (IAM), and network flow data, providing necessary insight into user and device activity. Features like security user behavior analytics (SUBA) provide insight into user activity to identify malicious users and compromised accounts.
