The report points out that the volume of alerts is huge, and it typically takes a human analyst to determine whether or not the alert actually signifies an infected device. Treating every alert as an infection would be ridiculous, but taking time for analysis gives the bad guys time to act. Worse, by the time analysis is complete the infection may have moved on. In particular, it may be using a completely different URL to get instructions and exfiltrate data.
