GettyImages-1279251103It’s noisy out there. Hundreds of TV shows that your friends insist you “HAVE to watch,” a concerning number of crime-related podcasts (seriously, why are there so many?), and seemingly non-stop communication with one another – text, email, social media, carrier pigeon.… There are only so many hours in the day, and a lot of things fighting for your time and attention. It can be difficult to cut through the noise and see clearly what should be prioritized, both in your personal life and at work. The cybersecurity space is noisy, too.

Millions of events happen behind the scenes of an organization every day, and security teams need to identify and research the most important cyber threats at any given time. But which threats are the most serious? And where are they all coming from?

There is a plethora of cybersecurity tools designed to cut through this noise and to address these cyber threats. ESG (Enterprise Strategy Group) has validated the economic value of several of these solutions. The ESG Economic Validation process takes into consideration analyses of the market and industry, both quantitative and qualitative research, customer proof points, and more, before coming to a conclusion about the solution.

Here are a few ESG Economic Validations of cybersecurity solutions that help organizations to cut through the noise and focus on what’s most important: protecting their environments.

  • Google Chronicle Security Analytics: ESG validated significant economic savings for organizations that leverage Chronicle’s pricing model and Google Cloud Platform’s economies of scale.
  • Gigamon Network Visibility: ESG validated Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric and discovered favorable results in the areas of digital transformation, reduction in tooling costs, reduction in the time needed to analyze traffic for security, and reduction in complexity.
  • Trend Micro XDR: Evaluated for security effectiveness, business enablement, and cost reduction, ESG validated that Trend Micro Vision One with XDR makes it easier for organizations to identify which threats are most concerning so that they can allocate their resources and focus accordingly.
  • Anomali Threat Intelligence Platform: ESG completed a quantitative economic validation and modeled analysis on the Anomali suite of products and found that it lowers operational cost of SecOps, improves security effectiveness, reduces risk to the organization, and improves SecOps productivity and satisfaction.
