A security stack is a collection of resources a company uses to protect itself from cybersecurity incidents. When incidents do occur, companies often believe the solution is to increase tools in their stack. However, this may not always be the best use of the stack. In many cases, more tools can mean more work for cybersecurity analysts who are already addressing thousands of possible threats every day. Companies can simplify their security stack by eliminating redundant tools or ones that rely too heavily on manual monitoring, to improve efficiency. It’s not about having every new tool or service in your security stack — it’s about how you use them.
