USE INTELLIGENCE TO ACCELERATE SECURITY OPERATIONS AND INTEGRATE DEFENSES
PROTECTING YOUR BUSINESS, EMPLOYEES AND CUSTOMERS IS GETTING MORE COMPLEX, NOT LESS
Defense-in-depth has created a massive amount of data and a massive management challenge. Faced with resource constraints and hiring challenges, security teams are falling behind. A different approach is needed to protect your business, employees and customers — one based on applying context, prioritization and automation to threat intelligence to accelerate security operations.
LIMITED HUMAN RESOURCES
DATA & NOISE
CONTEXT IS KEY — CORRELATE INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL DATA
To streamline a threat operations and management program and accelerate security operations, large amounts of unmanageable threat data must be contextualized, answering questions like: Who, What, Where, When, How and Why?
Managing context is a key first step to evolve your security posture from one that is reactive and defensive, to one that is proactive when augmented and prioritized using external cyber threat intelligence. In order to begin the process, data must be organized into actionable information about the adversaries, the indicators of compromise that identify them, their tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), and the events that occur external and internal to your network.
PRIORITIZE THREAT INTELLIGENCE FOR YOUR SPECIFIC ENVIRONMENT
Not all cyber threat intelligence is created equal. Given vast amounts of contextualized threat data from internal and external sources, the challenge is to make sure that it is accurate (A), relevant (R) to your business, and timely (T) enough to take meaningful action upon it. You need control to define these parameters. After all, who understands your environment and risk profile better — a vendor or yourself? The A.R.T. of cyber threat intelligence is to prioritize and best match the needs of your specific environment by combining automation with expert human analysis.
ACCELERATE DETECTION AND RESPONSE
Prioritized cyber threat intelligence filters out noise and reduces false positives so your resources won’t waste time and chase ghosts. Now you need the ability to automate previously manual tasks and accelerate detection and response. Applying only the relevant, high-priority threat intelligence automatically to your specific environment allows your existing security technologies to perform more efficiently and effectively. With a single source of truth automatically shared across your infrastructure, you gain greater situational understanding, better decision making and strong security processes.
A PLATFORM FOR THREAT OPERATIONS AND MANAGEMENT
Your ability to accelerate security operations through a streamlined threat operations and management program hinges on the tool that brings it all together. That platform must be able to help you aggregate, operationalize and act upon the most relevant threats facing your organization. Threat operations is achieved when you have the ability to rapidly bring together internal threat intelligence, event data and alerts with external threat intelligence and adversary information to provide context, prioritization and automation that strengthens the configuration and policies of your security infrastructure and accelerates detection and response.
