When it comes to cybersecurity strategy, some organizations understandably may take a reactive approach — addressing a cyberattack or data breach after it happens. A proactive approach, on the other hand, can go a long way toward mitigating the impact of a cyber attack — and shifting toward a proactive posture often doesn’t require much complexity.
The importance of proactive cybersecurity
A proactive cybersecurity approach may seem to be more work upfront, but it is worth it in the long run. Taking proactive cybersecurity measures to prevent cyberattacks and data breaches can save organizations a lot of headaches—and money—down the line. A 2020 report found that cybersecurity professionals who took a proactive approach were significantly more satisfied with the impact of their efforts than those who did not.
IronNet’s Collective Defense platform, consisting of IronDefense and IronDome, enables companies to execute a robust, proactive cybersecurity strategy. The platform leverages network detection and response (NDR) powered by behavioral analytics and crowdsourced attack intelligence to secure your enterprise network.
A proactive Collective Defense approach also helps to alleviate the severe cyber talent shortage currently facing the cybersecurity field. IronNet’s Collective Defense strategy has demonstrated up to 340% more efficiency and 23% time savings in real-world security operations center (SOC) environments.
