Traditional security technologies can’t detect the bug, but high-performance analytics can
Sometimes, when you look at a problem in retrospect, you see that it could have been avoided or at least minimized. Heartbleed is a great example of that. You see, many security operations centers and security firms rely on “cyber-in-a-box” solutions for their cybersecurity. Not good – and now they know that.
Heartbleed has been around for years. Why haven’t these guys detected the anomalous behaviors? It’s because the rules-based system they use couldn’t have seen Heartbleed or any low and slow signal – unless it already knew to look for it.
