Enrichment is a major part of a security data lifecycle and can take on many forms: adding GeoIP locations for all IP addresses in a log, attaching asset inventory data via user or hostname lookups, or extending alerts with magic score to bump it up the triaging queue. The goal is always to make the data more actionable by providing a better ground for decision making.
