The pandemic has changed the way businesses operate, and one of these changes is that companies across the globe are adopting a more flexible work style. With parts of the workforce still working from home, it becomes important to safeguard our office networks completely.
While this flexibility is a boon for most employees, when we look at it from a cybersecurity architecture point of view, this could be looked at as a liability. It’s not enough to just blindly monitor our office/enterprise networks’ traffic; the monitoring needs to be done intelligently, keeping in mind the overall goal of thwarting cyberattacks.
Internal and external attacks can be challenging to uncover without the right monitoring solutions. Traditional SIEM (Security Incident & Event Management) solutions need to be augmented with user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) in order to effectively detect and investigate anomalies.
