Published on

Malicious actors are getting smarter each day and their tactics are evolving, making it more difficult to prevent security attacks and shifting the security focus to detection and response. This doesn’t mean that preventing malicious attacks isn’t important, but that it is equally important to have a plan in place for when an attack happens.

Security Monitoring helps businesses of any size detect security threats and recover from cyber attacks. Implementing a monitoring solution will result in:

Quicker Detection of Malicious Traffic

When you implement a network monitoring solution, you’ll have active monitoring of your network with real time alerting and escalation. The quicker malicious traffic can be detected, the more likely it is that the damage will be lessened.

Security Expertise for Breach Remediation

If your business does experience a significant breach, you’ll have access to security experts to assist with cleaning up the mess. Whether it be a quick remediation or remediation that takes months to get your business back on track, you’ll have an expert with you every step of the way.

Increased Visibility into Changes, Activity, and Anomalies

You’ll know exactly what is going on in your network at all times by means of reporting of metrics and health throughout the environment and the tracking of critical security events.

The time to implement a security monitoring solution is now. The question is no longer ‘if’ your business will be affected by a security attack, but ‘when.’ Contact CMA today to get started!
