-28% are implementing more probes and/or data collectors around the network. Security data collection is no longer limited to the perimeter, it is now done at major peering points throughout the internal network as well. This will likely increase as enterprises implement SDN. This means more data to collect, process, and store so CISOs must continue down this road with eyes wide open.
When you see this data, it's easy to understand why the security analytics market is growing as vendors like 21CT, Cybereason, Cyphort, ISC8, Leidos, Narus and Vectra Networks jump in to the pool. Cisco is approaching this market with a managed service while Dell SecureWorks, Symantec, and Verizon work with customers to add security analytics to managed services contracts.
While I've been writing about this market for a while, it is still extremely early. Stay tuned, lots more ahead!
