Advanced attacks leverage multiple attack vectors, requiring individual, core security controls to work together to detect and prevent advanced attacks. This extends beyond traditional security operations tools (e.g., SIEM, SOAR, EDR, and XDR) to core network, cloud, endpoint, and identity controls.
