Together, the companies are helping customers improve their security operation efficiency with fewer false positives while enhancing their security posture with fewer false negatives.

"Enterprises can benefit from a layered security strategy," stated Tom Raimondi, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, NETSCOUT. "Once informed by Arbor Sightline DDoS incident reports and Omnis AED network edge attack detection, Cortex XSOAR can make enforcement policy changes through any device within the environment to give security teams the flexibility they need.
