A detect-and-react cybersecurity strategy shouldn't replace prevention

'Detect and react' won't win games when you can't stop the run
Don't ignore breach prevention in favor of a strategy of detection and reaction just because everyone thinks a breach is inevitable.

The hottest cybersecurity products and services use words such as DETECTION and to a lesser extent PROTECTION, because they can in fact deliver some of each. But PREVENTION is very different. In football, you can say you PREVENTED the opposing team from scoring a touchdown. You didn’t PROTECT them from scoring a touchdown, and you certainly didn’t DETECT them from scoring one. PREVENTION is a strong word, whatever was about to occur simply didn’t. You PREVENTED it from occurring. DETECTION is not so strong. Your alarms could have DETECTED someone entering your home, but by the time the police came, the burglars and your valuables are long gone.

The prevention is not popular in XXI century. Most people prefer easy convenience over the knowledgeable peace of mind. The AV vendors simply adjusted their products to the point of view of masses.:coffee:
With some initial effort, one can have a great prevention type of security and peace of mind afterward.
The problem is the initial effort.:)

Andy, that is the key. It does take some effort. But it takes a lot less effort then the cure of not doing it.
