As cyber threats grow in sophistication, traditional defenses prove increasingly inadequate. This has elevated the role of specialized incident response teams, who rely on cutting-edge monitoring and analytics. More than just diagnostic tools, they serve as intelligence assets, offering unparalleled insights into attack patterns and tactics. This shift to data-rich telemetry is reshaping our strategic approach to cybersecurity, moving from mere reaction to proactive defense and predictive analytics. The evolution of NDR technology marks a turning point, promising a future where defenders regain the upper hand in cybersecurity.
