Threat visibility has always been an unruly challenge. Security teams find themselves inundated with alerts, many of which are false alarms. The irony is that, even as defenders can see more information about threats than ever before, attackers can slip right by because of all the noise.
And the attackers know this, so they create even more noise.
The key to addressing this challenge is not to turn off the noise but to parse out the signal by correlating data points into actionable information. This allows defenders to spend their limited time following up on potential threats that will be destructive if they turn out to be real.
