The cybersecurity industry keeps us all on our toes trying to follow up with solutions and breakthrough technologies – not only in advanced security capabilities, but also with state of the art methods of management and integration with other network security elements.
You want your security elements to play together in a well synchronized manner. You wouldn’t want to have to intervene to frequently make manual adjustments, would you?
So let’s talk about synchronization:
As security threats’ sophistication and duration evolves, protection systems are required to be constantly updated. Moreover, security controls need to be fully synchronized to ensure seamless security in the event of attack, combining on-premise and in the cloud mitigation vs. various attack types.
Once an attack is discovered, the right solution synchronizes all mitigation systems (on-premise and in the cloud) with security intelligence in real time. Consequently, the best approach is to select components that can work together as a truly integrated single system, pushing the attack back and letting legitimate traffic through.
Synchronization is essential to the successful mitigation of complex and multi-vector attacks or volumetric attacks, with zero latency impact.
