2020 Market Guide for Network Detection and Response
Network detection and response (formerly known as network traffic analysis) vendors are adding more automated and manual response features to their solutions. Here, we provide an overview of the market and highlight some of the key vendors to be considered by security and risk management leaders.
Applying machine learning and other analytical techniques to network traffic is helping enterprises detect suspicious traffic that other security tools are missing.
Network detection and response (NDR) remains a crowded market with a low barrier to entry, as many vendors can apply common analytical techniques to traffic monitored from a SPAN port. Customer references, from a broad set of vendors, are generally satisfied with their tools.
Response capabilities fall into two categories: manual and automatic. Vendors have been actively enhancing their manual (threat hunting and incident response) features, and have been adding partners to broaden their automatic response functionality.
To improve infrastructure security and the detection of suspicious network traffic, security and risk management leaders should:
- Implement behavioral-based NDR tools to complement signature-based detection solutions.
- Include NDR-as-a-feature solutions in their evaluations, if they are available from their current security information and event management (SIEM), firewall or other security vendors.
- Decide early on in the evaluation process if they desire automated response versus manual response capabilities. A clearly defined response strategy is valuable in selecting a shortlist of NDR vendors.
