Security teams are still struggling to cut down the time attackers spend infiltrating enterprise networks, with hackers routinely dwelling inside compromised networks for 100 days or more.
A survey conducted by Attivo Networks found that 64% of respondents felt that 100 days of dwell time — the timespan between an attacker entering a network and the organisation detecting them — seemed accurate or was too low.
In addition, 22% of respondents stated that they are not tracking dwell time statistics at all, up 7% from last year.
The survey also found that user networks and endpoints are the top concerns for 65% of respondents. Securing the cloud is also a high priority concern among 63% of respondents.
