Security Analytics for Threat Detection and Breach Resolution in 2019: EMA Top 3 Report and Decision Guide
This report is a time-saving guide. It is designed to help decision-makers who have identified problematic security use cases to select analytics tools that best address those use cases to aid in narrowing selection choices for proof of concept testing or other interviews.
If the security team has invested in the proper tools and still is not able to render a solid defense, and reaches a point where they have been able to break down data silos and address the political silos that impede information flow and cooperation, then this report can aid in choosing a vendor to take the security practice to the next level.
How to use this document:
It is important to recognize that every organization is different, with a unique set of IT and business requirements. As such, EMA strongly recommends that when using this guide to create a shortlist, each organization conduct its own evaluation to confirm that other aspects of the solutions will best match its business needs or that the disclosed use cases also meet other requirements, like business workflows and full reporting necessities. This guide will assist with the process by providing information on key use cases common to many prospective buyers to review during the selection process, and an associated shortlist of vendors with solutions that meet them.
For each use case, EMA provides the following sections offering insights for use in the platform selection process:
• Quick Take - This is an overview of the use case, why it is important, and how the solutions address it.
• Buyer's Note - Key considerations prospective buyers should be aware of, and questions they should ask during the evaluation process.
• Top 3 Solution Providers - By identifying and recognizing the most innovative vendor solutions that address the greatest business priorities for secure access enablement, the table in this section provides a brief overview of each platform and the respective capabilities. Within the Top 3, the solutions are listed alphabetically by vendor, so the order in which they appear is not an indication of EMA's preference. It is highly recommended that organizations seeking to adopt solutions addressing a particular priority investigate each of the corresponding Top 3 vendors to determine which best meet their full and unique requirements.
