Cyber Breaches Are On The Rise
Organizations of all sizes continue to experience data breaches and 2017 has been called the year of the data breach. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) there were 1,253 publicly reported data breaches in 2017 and 1,093 in 2016. Many high-profile data breaches were seen in 2017 with organizations like Verizon, Tio Networks (a Pay Pal company) and Equifax, as well many other breaches against small & mid-sized organizations. These organizations had cyber security professionals on staff and a multitude of security products such as Firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems, Security Information Event Managers (SIEM), Malware Sandboxes and more.
So why are organizations still getting breached? At Aella Data, we believe it is because of complex environments with blind spots, disparate tools and alert overflow. Today’s environments consist of physical, virtualized, containerized in public, private and hybrid clouds that create huge coverage challenges and an unmanageable amount of alert noise. In this state, it is extremely difficult for security teams to efficiently respond to threats and identify the critical ones before data is stolen or damage is done.

The Aella Data Solution
We believe the solution to this problem is to deploy a single technology that can be deployed across all environments to provide pervasive visibility. The technology should collect, inspect and correlate all types of data, such as network traffic, logs, server commands, processes, applications, users, files, etc. The solution should be full stack, yet open, extensible, scalable and intelligent, and provide automation so that security staff can operate more efficiently. Lastly and most importantly, at Aella Data, we believe that cyber security solutions should reduce the industry average of 200 days to detect a breach to minutes to mitigate the potential of data exfiltration or any other damages.
