Today’s vendor-driven approach to cybersecurity, which continues to add more and more layers, is not sustainable. With a mathematical certainty, every security model will inevitably fail at least once, regardless of the defense and technology sophistication involved.
Although they have invested in the latest technology, organizations – still – cannot detect cyber threats during the early stages of the attack lifecycle. The average time to detect and react to cyber breaches today is 240 days. More than ever, businesses need to radically change their mindset and focus on identifying early in the attack lifecycle, thus reacting with the most efficient response strategy. And to do so, they need to analyze extremely valuable security-related data and metadata that remain unused, fragmented, isolated and mostly static.
Collecting and analyzing data is crucial for a business-driven cybersecurity model that integrates people, processes and technologies into a comprehensive security program. Enterprises need to protect their continuously changing infrastructure against a constantly moving threat. This is where OBRELA comes in. “We make sure our customers can focus on what they do best, their core business, by leveraging our expertise and HPE Security ArcSight to address their information security needs,” says Patsis. “Security is our core business.”
HPE Security ArcSight has been the SIEM solution of choice for OBRELA since the beginning. One of OBRELA’s primary selection criteria was interoperability. Other key factors included scalability, ease of integration, and raw power. The open architecture of HPE Security ArcSight ESM enables OBRELA to connect its existing data stores, analytics platforms, and other security technologies directly into the SOC “allowing us to confidently offer highly reliable service agreements,” Patsis remarks.
