Threat management is a practice of using early detection systems, security and event management systems and tools for proactive monitoring and counteracting threats in a company network. Implementation of these systems alongside a set of good practices and user training comprise a company’s cybersecurity strategy.
Many threat management tools form Unified Threat Management Solutions. These make it possible to address many types of threats from a single point, which reduces the overall effort related to managing the company’s network security. UTM solutions are complemented by firewalls, antivirus software and disc encryption.
