Advanced attacks are designed to evade traditional preventative and detection techniques. Network traffic analysis solutions (which can also be referred to as network detection and response) provide a sound method for identifying threats traversing through the network as well as through cloud traffic. One key attribute of network traffic analysis solutions is the coverage across all ports and protocols to ensure full visibility.
There are a multitude of detection techniques that network traffic analysis solutions leverage, including supervised and unsupervised machine-learning techniques, deep packet and deep session inspection, malware detection, sandboxing, asset inventory, and more.
