No matter what industry you are in – government, banking, retail, etc. – the reality is anyone can be a target in today’s rapidly evolving global cyber threat landscape. Protecting against these threats requires broad and deep visibility across the entire IT environment.
Threats and risks take many forms and attackers use multiple angles. Existing log and machine data provides evidence as to nefarious activity. When a next-generation security intelligence platform unifies the right tools, threats and risks are exposed like never before and enterprises have the ability to secure their networks and comply with regulatory requirements.
In this slideshow, Chris Petersen, CTO and co-founder of LogRhythm, shares six aspects of a security intelligence platform solution that are critical to security threat detection and response.
Click through for six features of a security intelligence platform solution that are critical to security threat detection and response, as identified by Chris Petersen, CTO and co-founder of LogRhythm.
Real-time visibility into a company’s security posture, based on an analysis of a wide variety of security information, exposes threats and in-progress incidents impacting the organization.
A next-generation SIEM analyzes current activity against established baselines, spotting behavioral anomalies that might pose a risk to the organization.
Once individual events are identified as suspicious, a next-gen SIEM platform will look at other data related to network activity and analyze multiple network “dimensions,” exposing advanced threats that may go undetected by traditional defenses.
Once an anomaly has been detected, a next-gen SIEM platform notifies appropriate personnel so an event can be analyzed, and if necessary, action can be taken.
After an alert has been raised, a next-gen SIEM platform can help the user determine its validity by correlating forensic log data from the affected systems.
Many industries have regulatory requirements for log data collection. Not only can a next-gen SIEM product meet the necessary requirements, it can also automate the compliance assurance process.
