MixMode’s Head of Sales and Alliances, Geoff Coulehan, discusses the data retention cost and challenges that arise when legacy cybersecurity platforms require historical data to be organized in a proprietary format for after-the-fact investigation processes.
Data Storage Cost
Managing a relatively small, stable data store is one thing, but dynamic companies face immense challenges when those circumstances change. Data growth can become unwieldy to safeguard when it has to be carefully prepared through a series of time-consuming, manual processes before the security software can evaluate it.
Within the first 24 hours after deployment, MixMode had enabled the government entity to regain control over the security environment and network data infrastructure. No longer limited to log data analysis, they were able to identify and address real-time threats as well as network and operational configuration challenges.
