Minimize Damage with Greater Insight into Breaches
- February 17, 2023
Almost weekly, we hear of highly publicized breaches stemming from unpatched vulnerabilities. In today’s world, the unfortunate reality is that it’s not if a data breach will occur, but when. And on average, it can take up to 277 days to identify and contain a breach. So, what do these incidents have in common? Organizations may have been either too slow in detecting and responding to the initial attack or lacked the tools to help them discover and detect the vulnerabilities in the first place.
Many organizations have embarked on a Zero Trust journey to bring greater control and visibility across their security and IT environments. This is an excellent decision, and there are multiple pathways that activate Zero Trust principles, a critical one being the solutions organizations have in place to protect against advanced threats.
Security and IT operations teams often scramble to address a potential breach. In the investigation process, they try to replay the events to uncover where, when and how the data breach occurred. With that information, the question then becomes, where does my IT and/or security team find the bandwidth to address so many vulnerabilities?
When the inevitable breach happens, vulnerability visibility is everything to your IT and SecOps. Over time, as you identify vulnerabilities and proactively harden the attack surface, these solutions also help address the time-intensive burden of remediation. As the latest Cost of a Data Breach report puts it, “The best way to prevent a data breach is to understand why it’s happening.”
Dell helps customers align with the Zero Trust paradigm shift through an ecosystem of best-of-breed partners providing threat management solutions. Within the Dell SafeGuard and Response portfolio, we offer VMware Carbon Black, which protects customer environments with next-generation antivirus (NGAV), behavioral and enterprise endpoint detection and response (EDR) and Audit and Remediation services. We have now extended the portfolio to include Data and Vulnerability Management solutions.
Your IT and security teams need to access data logs going back in time in order to diagnose the data breach situation and appropriately respond. VMware Data Retention provides additional 60, 90 or 180 days of event storage data retention on the Carbon Black Cloud platform so security teams have more time to decipher data to proactively hunt for threats and address security issues.
And when your IT Teams are overwhelmed with so many security vulnerabilities to address, the Carbon Black Vulnerability Management solution prioritizes vulnerability assessments based on risk and exploit potential so they can reduce false positives and noisy alerts to really focus on what is imperative to the organization.
Knowing every organization has unique requirements, Dell has made a tremendous effort to provide customers with flexibility and choice through our Dell SafeGuard and Response endpoint security and threat management portfolio of solutions. Please reach out to your Dell sales representative to learn how this expanded offering can help address your specific needs as you navigate a Zero Trust journey and the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape.
