While perimeter controls like intrusion detection provide protection and visibility north-south, most enterprises are left blind to insiders, rogues, and low-and-slow attacks. No east-west visibility means that once a host has been compromised, the internal activities are hard to detect, diagnose, or root cause—and thanks to rapidly evolving threats, compromise isn't a question of if but of when.
Modern SOCs meet that challenge by proactively detecting and hunting attackers. They use advanced behavioral analytics and context-rich investigative workflows for effective threat hunting, efficient forensics, and ongoing hygiene to patrol and harden the attack surface. NDR security solutions help SOC teams reclaim the advantage over sophisticated attackers.
