Network Traffic Analysis (NTA): A Cybersecurity ‘Quick Win’

February 27, 2020

According to research from ESG and the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), 91% of cybersecurity professionals believe that most organizations are either extremely or somewhat vulnerable to a significant cyber-attack or data breach.1 This level of cyber-risk demands immediate attention and action from CISOs, CIOs, and business executives. As a result, 62% of organizations plan to increase cybersecurity spending in 2020.2 Here’s the problem: Increasing security budgets alone isn’t enough.
