Incident responders overwhelmed by false-positive security alerts; waste hours daily investigating false-positives, survey report reveals

MDR incident responders are wasting an enormous number of hours and resources processing useless security alerts – a problem that impacts staffing, operational business models and security effectiveness. Additionally, incident responders often cope with this problem by reducing the sensitivity of security equipment or ignoring alerts altogether – thus leaving their organizations more vulnerable and susceptible to attacks.
