Manage Cybersecurity Risk

Discover the financial consequences of risk acceptance

Does your business struggle with multiple security tools? Do you have the solutions in place to manage and measure them?

Security is a moving target which makes it tough to understand which control metrics – especially if you’re using disparate security tools – to monitor so you have the most accurate view of your security posture.

By consolidating visibility, you’ll increase cyber awareness so you can take informed action to reduce risk.

The number of security tools to manage is overwhelming

Security teams from large enterprises now have 76 security tools to manage and those with 10,000 or more employees on average, 96 tools. 1 This results in limited visibility into your security program’s effectiveness and vulnerability to threats.

Security leaders are losing confidence in visibility

Only 40% of security leaders are confident in their visibility to understand if their security controls are working as intended.2 This has big consequences: 82% of security leaders have been surprised by a security event which evaded a control that they thought was in place.3

Using multiple security tools means threats can be missed if you don’t optimize them with the latest detection engineering. MDR integrates with your tools to provide total threat detection coverage.
