Network Visibility An Essential Toolbox for Responding to Incidents and Hunting Threats
Updated: Oct 1
In an age where cyber threats are both sophisticated and relentless, having the upper hand in the realm of network security is no longer optional—it's imperative. Enter the dynamic duo of incident response and threat hunting, powered by the unparalleled capabilities of network visibility. In this blog, we will delve into the critical role of network visibility in incident response and threat hunting, while showcasing how Network Critical's Visibility Solution leads the charge in transforming networks into fortresses of proactive defense.
The Synergy Between Network Visibility, Incident Response, and Threat Hunting
Incident Response Supercharged: Swift incident response relies on real-time insights into network activities. Network visibility provides a live feed of network traffic, enabling security teams to detect anomalies, isolate compromised segments, and minimize response time.
Forensic Prowess: When a security breach occurs, understanding its scope and impact is crucial. Network visibility allows for retrospective analysis, offering a comprehensive view of the attack's footprint, and aiding in understanding the attacker's tactics, techniques, and procedures.
Proactive Threat Hunting: Rather than waiting for incidents, threat hunting involves actively seeking out hidden threats. Network visibility acts as a treasure map, guiding threat hunters to potential indicators of compromise that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Behavioral Analysis: Network visibility provides an opportunity to establish baseline behaviors for the network. Deviations from these norms can flag potential threats, aiding in both response and threat-hunting activities.
