Now Available - Forrester Report: The Total Economic Impact™ Of The CyCognito Platform
A proactive security approach is the practice of taking measures to predict and prevent a breach before it ever happens. Proactive security teams fix security gaps before they can be exploited and mitigate their highest risks to stay ahead of potential attackers. Meanwhile, a reactive approach involves detecting incidents in-process or after the fact and responding, for example by implementing security solutions in response to a breach that already occured. Proactive security emphasizes prediction and prevention over detection and response.
