What does Probability Theory have to do with Cyber Security? It turns out, a lot.
Cyber security attacks are increasing in frequency, each one becoming more potentially harmful than the last. Traditional methods of threat prediction and mitigating risks cannot keep pace with the increased sophistication of attacks, requiring a fundamental shift in security technology. Respond Analyst leverages Probability Theory and advanced algorithms to analyze all relevant cyber observables, ultimately making fully contextualized and informed decisions at the scale, speed and consistency no human can match.
