Why NDR is Important: Encrypted Traffic is Sneaking Past Traditional Security

Since 2021, over 90% of all internet traffic has become encrypted and this is posing a massive threat to networks all around the globe. Traditional security approaches aren’t holding up anymore and cyberattacks have skyrocketed within just the last year – 2021 had 1.5 times as many ransomware attacks as 2020 and there were over 230 million ransomware attacks in the first half of 2022 alone. Encrypted traffic is very difficult and time consuming for systems to decrypt and comb through for threats, letting attackers slip past with ease. Let’s examine how NDR may be the solution you are looking for.


Network detection and response systems, or NDR systems, are able to use AI to find threats without needing to decrypt any incoming traffic. This is accomplished by the AI creating a fingerprint of assets and behavior patterns and comparing that to incoming traffic.
