How Lumu Illuminates the Current Threat, Compromises Landscape



Effectively battling threats requires actionable intelligence, something many organizations lack today. Typically, compromises or threats are only discovered sometime after an incident occurs, turning what should have been a defense into incident response. That lack of quick discovery potentially creates dark areas in IT, where lateral attacks, data exfiltration and other compromises can go on for days, weeks or even months.


What’s more, the damage that occurs between an active threat and its discovery can be business-ending, especially for small- and medium-size enterprises. According to IBM, the average cost of a data breach in 2020 was $3.86 million, and the average lifecycle of a breach was 280 days from identification to containment. Simply put, the high costs of undetected compromises and breaches are things that most organizations cannot withstand.


Miami, Florida-based Lumu aims to put an end to that lack of threat discovery with an innovative platform that constantly monitors IT infrastructures for compromises, allowing action to be taken quickly. Lumu’s mantra is one of providing cybersecurity professionals with actionable information about compromises, while also identifying the so-called dark areas of IT to help IT staffers harden their defenses.
