Why Does Machine Learning Matter for MDR?
Central to “pure-play” MDR technology is the ingestion of data – logs from endpoints, network technology, security technology, and more. Machine learning allows us to continuously improve in identifying new factors that indicate compromise earlier on, because it can process more data than a human can, and it can do so faster. It’s great at uncovering patterns within potentially relevant indicators.
Of course, that also means improved performance and results, such (Read more…)
