IDC recently released its Worldwide Network Intelligence and Threat Analytics Market Shares, 2019: How the Network is Used to Unmatched Adversary (doc # US46351020, December 2020), which highlights the rise of Network Intelligence and Threat Analytics (NITA). In the report, IDC details the fast growth of NITA solutions — projected to reach nearly $1.3B worldwide at a 24% year-over-year growth rate — and takes a look at how products such as IronNet’s IronDefense Network Detection and Response and IronDome Collective Defense solutions represent an important new category of cyber defenses. The goal of these advancements is to level the playing field for enterprise security teams tasked with defending against advanced, stealthy cyber threats. 

With the recent SUNBURST hack and the subsequent knowledge of the numerous enterprises and government agencies affected by the attack, it is clear that the network continues to play an important role in any organization’s cyber defenses. The ability to identify suspicious activity using advanced and scalable behavioral analysis on network traffic, and the ability to discern what is malicious from what is merely anomalous through the use of an Expert System, is critical for modernizing cyber defense against SUNBURST and similar types of threats. Equally important is the ability to share machine-based and human-readable behavioral threat insights in near real-time across a community of peers in a Collective Defense formation to leverage defensive economies of scale across a supply chain, business ecosystems, region, or nation against the numerous adversaries (e.g., such as Russian groups) that often work together to target governments and enterprises.

IronNet Cybersecurity offers its IronDefense network behavior and response solution…but it is IronNet’s IronDome solution that is a differentiator.
