Eight Situational Awareness Tools Your Network Is Not Safe Without

White Paper Published By: McAfee

Type:  White Paper
Length:  3 pages

With networks sprawling to massive proportions and malicious activity hitting hard, fast, and constantly evolving, situational awareness is more vital than ever in keeping your network secure. Situational awareness refers to the continuous monitoring of your network by analyzing bulk data collected from sources across the board. In other words, it delivers a detailed overview of all areas of your network so you know exactly what’s going on through increased visibility and response capabilities.

In addition to looking at the broad spectrum of telemetry, situational awareness requires effective threat response and prioritization skills, awareness of a wide scope of malicious code behavior, and the aptitude to conduct interactive analyses and investigations to discover meaningful patterns that could signify an intrusion. Effective situational awareness, however, is not built on skills alone. Eight tools are equally as essential for keeping your situational awareness—and your network—alive.
