Making the budget case for improved network detection and response (NDR) isn't always straightforward, but it's worth the effort to help C-suites recognize the business benefits of spending now to make sure they save money, time, and enterprise reputation.
Building a budget case for NDR
NDR solutions offer significant benefits for IT teams. From context-rich threat detection to machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled behavior monitoring, advanced NDR tools make it possible for IT teams to even the cybersecurity playing field and get ahead of potential threats.
C-suite executives, meanwhile, may hesitate to green-light new spending without context around how these tools can help drive cost savings, both immediately and over time.
As a result, it's critical for IT professionals to make a budget case that resonates with C-suite priorities. For example, the context-rich nature of NDR results can help pinpoint threats before they gain network footholds, in turn reducing total spend on detection and remediation. Alert prioritization and false-positive detection, on the other hand, mean less time—and money—wasted on unproductive protective tasks.
