Security, at its core, is a data problem. As data volumes grow exponentially (to the tune of 28% CAGR), organisations struggle to collect, enrich and correlate their security data.

As a result, today’s data onboarding processes involve countless log formats and ingestion methods, resulting in deployment delays, cost overruns and employee burnout. Gaining complete visibility of your data across your environments, no matter where it lies, is critical for security teams to stay ahead of modern threats.
