Nowadays security companies have to compete not only with other vendors, but also with sophisticated cyber gangs. If you will fail to detect and patch security vulnerabilities in a timely manner – Black Hats will do it for you, but for their own ends.
Continuous monitoring is becoming a very popular term, both among security vendors and CISOs. In a constantly changing and hostile network environment where new zero-day exploits appear almost every couple of days, continuous monitoring of your organization’s infrastructure is vitally important. The main role of continuous monitoring is to keep your security team constantly aware of newly detected vulnerabilities, weaknesses, missing patches and configuration flaws that appear to be exploitable.
