How to Get the Most Out of Your Existing Cybersecurity Tools

The fact that government agencies, with all their layers of security, have been victim to recent data breaches has scared many business enterprises into taking a closer look at their existing cybersecurity tools. While an audit is never a bad idea, it can be easy to overreact and want to replace your existing setup completely. However, it is also a little irrational to “jump the gun” and completely replace your current security methods.


As the world becomes more populated with hackers and the amount of security breaches continues to increase, the market for cybersecurity solutions has exploded. Projections by MarketsandMarkets project that the industry will reach a 170.21 billion dollar value by the year 2020. As the amount of suppliers begins to increase, many organizations will likely find interest in new solutions, when in reality the existing tools they have are not the issue.


The problem is not in the tools themselves, but actually how the tools are being used. If you are a member of a SecOps team, ask yourself how much time is spent each day bringing in information and investigating said information.


Inefficiency most likely doesn’t stem from your cybersecurity solution, but rather the ones operating it. Operators may hint that issues are originating from the system, but centralizing information and seamlessly integrating into threat intelligence, and incident response management may be a more efficient route. Streamlining the workflow in this manner allows team members to more quickly review data, rather than waste time searching for it. The amount of time saved will enable analysts to spend more of their time hunting for new threats and create new mitigation techniques.


It can be very tempting to blame the current tools in use and replace them, but the truth is that does not solve the problem. However, if you are finding that your team is spending the majority of their days on repetitive, low-complexity tasks, new solutions aren’t necessarily the answer.
