TThough several vendors offer DRP services, each approaches the domain with a unique perspective. Despite these differences, an organization's DRP service is capable of providing effective threat detection, analysis, and remediation with the following capabilities:
1. Automation and ease of management - effective DRPS should not cause additional stress over the amount of time and effort it takes to manage. DRPS should take tasks off of security teams to-do list, and not add them. Look for components like Cloud and mobile app functionality, integration with the most commonly used security tools and managed service support to ensure that a security team isn’t bogged down with intensive management efforts. Automated remediation and takedown are essential as well to reduce the impact of threats.
2. AI-based tools - To streamline the analysis of data produced by platforms like mobile app stores, social media platforms, and GitHub, AI capabilities are necessary. They quickly identify risky content by searching through millions of posts, images, and information available on public platforms — no matter how complicated those threats may be. Without AI to support a DRP service, organizations can be exposed to targeted cyberattacks, data loss, phishing scams, compliance violations or account takeovers.
3. Global threat intelligence and research - Favor DRP services that offer social and digital channel threat intelligence. Access to advisories, breaking news, and vulnerability chatter from these data sources can help organizations better prioritize threats and vulnerability management as threat conditions evolve.
