Detection engineers design and build security systems that constantly evolve to defend against current threats. Two common defenses include securing networks via configuration changes GPO, basic firewalls, etc. and deploying active prevention security suites advanced firewalls, antivirus, etc. Because security professionals recognize that no system can perfectly keep out attackers, the other option is to detect malicious behaviors – in network traffic and/or on a host – that bypassed the other security controls.
