Security analytics scores high in value, low in penetration
Security analytics had the highest perceived value compared to its cost, according to a survey of information security professionals released Monday. But it scored next to last in penetration.
It’s a very new technology, explained David Monahan, research director at Enterprise Management Associates, the research firm that did the study.
However, there have been significant advancements in both machine-learning algorithms and analysis techniques over the past two or three years, he said.
The survey covered 18 emerging securities technologies, and advanced threat analytics tied for first place with cloud data encryption and threat intelligence feeds.
