  3. Network Detection and Response Report



A Survey Report by Cybersecurity Insiders

Recent high-profile incidents at companies like SolarWinds, Microsoft, T-Mobile, Facebook, Colonial Pipeline, JBS and Acer highlight the significant harm caused by advanced cyberattacks. These types of attacks can successfully circumvent endpoint and perimeter defenses, remain hidden and active in networks for a long time, and are capable of causing extensive damage.

Network Detection and Response (NDR) solutions are designed specifically to detect and respond to advanced cyber threats. NDR is a solution that combines the signature-based threat detection capabilities of IDS/IPS with Network Traffic Analysis, which detects unknown or hidden threats through the identification of behavioral anomalies in network traffic.

But how familiar are security professionals with NDR? How many have or plan to deploy an NDR solution? What features and capabilities do they expect in an NDR solution? And what concerns are holding some back from adopting NDR?

This report presents the results of an NDR survey of network security professionals conducted by Cybersecurity Insiders in September 2021:

  • The findings include trends in NDR usage, threat detection & response priorities, NDR advantage over IDS/IPS, NDR solution capabilities, and adoption barriers.
  • Security managers will find this survey report useful in assessing their own cybersecurity strategies and security product vendors will get insights to align roadmaps with evolving customer needs and concerns.
