Enterprise IT organizations can view their global network assets in seconds. They can deploy new cloud servers in minutes. They can even have a new appliance delivered to a branch office in a few hours. But it takes them 197 days on average—more than half a year—to identify a data breach.1 Considering that the average cost of a data breach has reached $3.86 million, security leaders need more expeditious ways to detect and remediate threats before they wreak havoc.
Bridging the gap between siloed network operations centers (NOCs) and security operations centers (SOCs) goes a long way to meet this need. It doesn’t require any major infrastructure or organizational change. With appropriate technology, security architects can reach across the NOC-SOC divide to provide much-needed agility, scalability, and better use of limited technical resources. This eBook outlines the kinds of tools and processes that architects should consider.
