Why NDR is so important
Networks are the foundation of today’s connected world, making them a prime target of cyber attackers looking to cause disruption. The high volume of data traveling across these networks makes it easy for attackers to hide their tracks. IBM Security® QRadar® Network Detection and Response (NDR) helps security teams by analyzing network activity in real time. It combines depth and breadth of visibility with high-quality data and analytics to fuel actionable insights and response.
How it’s used
Gain visibility into unusual activity
Given the high volume of data traveling across your network, it’s easy for threats to go unnoticed. Detect reconnaissance, pivoting and transfers between devices — which are indicative of malicious lateral movement — in real time.
Reduce dwell time with quick detection
Attackers are patient, often exfiltrating data in small, infrequent batches. Uncover sensitive data moving across your network in real time by way of emails, chat messages, file uploads and downloads or social media.
Automatically update assets to stay ahead of attackers
Discover new devices as they connect to your network. Continuously profile assets based on attributes and behavior to uncover threats, compromised devices and shadow IT.
Shift from reactive to proactive
Query historical network activity to search for past activity, discover unusual behavior, and identify the assets involved to help prevent similar attacks in the future.
Deeper understanding of system traffic
Threats hide within the volume of normal traffic on your network. Dive deeper into your network content to determine what is really occurring.
Increased visibility of data
Every organization has a wealth of critical data that must be protected. QRadar NDR can help you know what that data is, who is accessing it, and where it is moving.
Capture of the insights you need
Being able to quickly sift through a flood of daily security log data and continuously capture key data makes it easier to analyze what is happening across organizations.
Mohawk College improves visibility and detection
Visibility is critical to improving network detection and response. The college chose IBM Security® QRadar® SIEM to help it gain visibility into its environment to detect, investigate and respond to cybersecurity breaches.
