Over the past years, Cybersecurity has evolved from a technical challenge for the IT Security Division of businesses to a major concern for business leaders. Cybersecurity incidents cause massive damage to organizations from small businesses to global leaders. Understanding the current status of attacks across the entire IT landscape of businesses and being able to rapidly identify and respond immediately is essential to mitigate the potential damage they can cause. On the other hand, the evolution of IT infrastructures from central, on premises data centers to hybrid IT environments running both on premises and in multi-cloud environments increases the complexity of gathering and processing the relevant data. DevOps environments also add a new element of volatility to the IT infrastructures. In addition, containerized environments – specifically if run in multi-cloud and hybrid scenarios – add to the complexity, where even critical business workloads are run in a very agile manner.
