An important benefit of deploying a cybersecurity platform is expanded visibility. Digital transformations often mean that organizations have an extremely diverse digital makeup that results in the need to support users, cloud deployments, networks, and devices in many places across different operating systems and environments.
Security platforms provide rich data gathering capabilities for visibility across all vectors: cloud, endpoint, servers, email, network, mobile, web, and IOT. They should integrate with partner products, which supplement their capabilities, and fit within the enterprise’s existing IT ecosystem and workflow. That may include SIEM/SOAR, identity and access management, vulnerability assessment, patch management, IT ticketing systems, threat intel, and more.
With expanded visibility and consolidated security functions, a cybersecurity platform can help organizations to better understand, communicate, and manage cyber risk.
