Michelle McLean, VP of Marketing at Salt Security, explains how malicious traffic is defined and what characteristics it may have. Salt Security’s platform looks across millions of users and API calls and builds a baseline of what is normal for any given environment. Potentially malicious traffic is defined as different from normal traffic but McLean notes that you can’t decide if it is malicious straight away. Malicious activity is defined by the pattern of activity over time. McLean explains how malicious traffic can be defined and it is recognised by the Salt Security platform.
