Ignoring The Intruder In Your Network

No matter what size your company is, there are companies just like yours that know there are intruders lurking on their networks, but have done nothing about it… for months!!!

In fact, according to a recent report from Kenna Security, it takes most companies as long as 120 days to fix identified vulnerabilities.  Unfortunately, the same report informs us that once a vulnerability is identified by an intruder, they exploit it in less than half that time.

Why Would You Leave Yourself Vulnerable?

To some extent, the reasons differ based on the size of the company. Larger companies are often so overwhelmed with attacks that their security teams can’t keep up with the attackers.  As a result, some threats are left unaddressed.  In smaller companies, it often comes down to the fact that the company simply doesn’t know what to do about the intruder, so they end up “hoping for the best.”  Hope is not a strategy!

Your Incident Response Team

Properly responding to any potential threat to your network and data requires having the right technology in place scanning and logging your network for potential exploits, and then having trained and seasoned experts constantly evaluating your network activity logs to find signs of lurking intruders. The right team will then take immediate remedial action to prevent those lurkers from becoming exploiters who steal and damage your valuable business data.
