Time is money when it comes to detecting cyberattacks. The average cost of a data breach now exceeds $4 million, but organizations that can rapidly detect and respond to threats can minimize potential damages and cut their remediation costs by half or more.
In our last post, we discussed how file integrity monitoring (FIM) solutions contribute to the rapid detection of cyber threats. FIM solutions alert you when changes to critical system files indicate that a network intrusion might be under way. Because most cyber exploits involve some sort of data or file manipulation, FIM serves as an effective early warning system.
