Real-time threat detection is tantamount to up-to-date protection, which should be the only kind of cyberdefense. The key to any good defense, however, is to think and act like there is always a threat. This is true in the virtual realm, to some great extent, where we see a hacker attack every 39 seconds.
For this reason, the use of security information and event management (SIEM) solutions is gaining popularity among security operations centers (SOCs). Security teams are gearing up for when and not if they are attacked. And it’s real-time threat detection and protection that is their goal.
