To detect suspicious network activity, NDR systems employ a combination of non-signature-based sophisticated analytical approaches such as machine learning. This allows teams to respond to unusual or malicious traffic and threats that are missed by other security technologies. In addition to raising alarms, NDR solutions should have incident response features. This might include things like automatically updating firewall rules to prevent suspicious traffic or offering incident investigation and threat hunting features.
Need of an NDR solution?
Networks are expanding into the cloud, and their size and complexity are increasing over time. This has resulted in an unprecedented amount of data crossing the dispersed network, providing an ideal hiding place for malicious actors. NDR solutions address this issue by gathering data from network devices and using analytical techniques such as machine learning to spot risks that other tools overlook.
To safeguard the organization from cyber-attacks, deep network visibility and sophisticated threat prevention and detection capabilities are required. Traditional signature-based detection systems are frequently unsuccessful against current threats, leading to a false sense of security inside the business. NDR solutions give enterprises with an extra layer of network-level security and threat prevention capabilities.
NDR solutions generate a baseline of normal network behavior by continuously monitoring and analyzing raw enterprise network traffic. NDR tools alert security teams to the possible presence of threats in their environment, when they detect suspicious network traffic patterns vary from this baseline.
