Choosing the Right Cyber eBook

Evaluating cyber security solutions for your company

Organizations everywhere are using a growing number of tools¹ to secure their operations, data, and workers — and it’s causing problems. The sheer volume of technologies and solutions may introduce serious complexity, both in terms of IT budget and the time needed to manage and integrate each individual tool.

As a result, IT teams and Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) are facing unprecedented challenges. Organizations with large tech stacks frequently struggle to detect and respond to an attack,² compared to those with fewer tools to manage. What’s more, used in isolation, many of these tools can create silos that make it harder to get a handle on security issues.

Understanding what tools are commonly used and what functionalities they provide is vital for navigating tech stack complexity.

Breaking down the cyber tech stack: common tools and solutions

  1. Antivirus (AV)
  2. Security information and event management (SIEM)
  3. Endpoint detection and response (EDR)
  4. Security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR)
  5. Security operations centre (SOC)
  6. Managed detection and response (MDR)

This eBook gives valuable insight you can use when assessing potential cyber security solutions. Finding the right solution can sometimes feel like a daunting task, especially as you deal with day-to-day security challenges and other critical IT priorities.

If there’s one thing you take away from what you’ve read, we hope it’s that you understand not all solutions are created equally. Finding one that will grow with you while providing comprehensive, end-to-end defense has never more urgent.
