Security analysts and incident responders in many organizations rely on a SIEM – a Security Information and Event Management platform – to gain insight into critical security events that may be occurring in the network. While the SIEM can be an effective tool, it also creates productivity challenges for overworked security teams, as well as security challenges for CISOs (pronounced see-so’s) that expect their SIEM to strengthen their security posture. Let’s look closer at each of these problems.
The first is a productivity problem, relating to the quantity of information generated by the SIEM. Security teams are often overwhelmed by the number of alerts they need to sort through each day to determine which events are related, and which events pose a potential risk to the organization. It’s an inefficient, time-consuming process that drains staff productivity. The second is a security problem. Even after analysts filter out the noise and low level alerts from the SIEM, what’s left are essentially symptoms of a security problem, but no real insight into the threat itself. That’s because traditional SIEMs are ineffective in providing automated detection of advanced threats.
Cyphort is solving the productivity problem AND the security problem with an innovative software platform called the Anti-SIEM. It provides everything you want in a SIEM. And less. That means less cost, less noise, less complexity, and less wasted time. The Anti-SIEM platform integrates advanced threat detection, comprehensive threat analytics, and one-touch threat mitigation into an open, scalable platform that significantly accelerates incident response and strengthens the security posture of organizations.
Here’s how it works. The Anti-SIEM is built on a foundation of advanced threat detection technology, something you won’t find in any traditional SIEM. Certified by ICSA Labs, the Anti-SIEM’s detection fabric uses machine learning and behavioral analysis technologies to continuously detect advanced threats within web, email traffic, and lateral spread traffic. These threats often bypass the first line of security defense, gain access to internal resources, and go undetected for weeks or months. By focusing first on detecting those threats, the Anti-SIEM eliminates wasted time and guesswork by security teams. Once a threat is discovered, the Anti-SIEM employs a powerful security analytics engine that correlates this threat information with log, event, and identity data from other sources. It then consolidates all relevant threat and event data from multiple sources into a timeline view of the complete security incident. This near real-time process is often completed within 15 seconds. Without the Anti-SIEM, it would be a manual process that could take hours. To further strengthen security and boost productivity, the Anti-SIEM also includes one-touch threat mitigation. The open architecture of the Anti-SIEM enables it to work seamlessly with existing tools. For example, it can automatically update rules in security devices to strengthen them to block similar threats in the future. Likewise, the Anti-SIEM can work with NAC tools to isolate or restrict the movement of an infected endpoint device until deeper forensics can be performed. This automation enables incident responders to focus on more critical security issues. The Anti-SIEM is a powerful, highly scalable solution that puts the “S” back into SIEM and resolves the productivity and security problems caused by traditional SIEMs.
Cyphort has essentially reinvented what the SIEM should be. It’s also worth noting that Cyphort’s Anti-SIEM can often provide significant, measurable time and cost savings in 3 ways:
– Lower-cost software pricing model
– Faster deployment and time-to-value
– Improved analyst productivity and accelerated incident response.
