Au­to­mated threat ver­i­fi­ca­tion re­duces time- at- risk

OffComm News - - CYBER SECURITY NEWS -

A cy­ber se­cu­rity spe­cial­ist, to in­tel­li­gence agen­cies in some of the world’s most de­mand­ing mis­sion crit­i­cal en­vi­ron­ments, has in­tro­duced the first ven­dor- ag­nos­tic, ma­chine learn­ing- based Au­to­mated Threat Ver­i­fi­ca­tion ( ATV) tech­nol­ogy. Hunts­man’s ATV au­to­mat­i­cally ver­i­fies whether re­ported threats are real, if they pose an un­ac­cept­able risk to the or­ga­ni­za­tion, and what op­tions are avail­able for their mit­i­ga­tion, in sec­onds.

There is still a ten­dency to man­u­ally process ma­chine- gen­er­ated in­for­ma­tion, and this can hin­der se­cu­rity spe­cial­ists work­ing against the clock try­ing to iso­late the real threats from the noise. By elim­i­nat­ing false alarms, and ver­i­fy­ing the threats that mat­ter, Hunts­man ATV bridges the gap be­tween de­tec­tion and re­sponse by in­stantly send­ing high pri­or­ity in­for­ma­tion to se­cu­rity an­a­lysts for their im­me­di­ate at­ten­tion.

Rapid threat con­tain­ment

In Novem­ber 2015, Cisco an­nounced the in­te­gra­tion of its pxGrid tech­nol­ogy with the Hunts­man An­a­lyst Por­tal ® . pxGrid pro­vides a suite of con­text shar­ing and net­work con­trol ca­pa­bil­i­ties that al­low Cisco ecosys­tem part­ners to ex­tend their reach into the net­work in­fra­struc­ture and take “Rapid Threat Con­tain­ment” ac­tions. “This is the cy­ber se­cu­rity in­dus­try’s first ma­chine- based threat ver­i­fi­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy, and it’s much- needed. De­tec­tion tech­nolo­gies and ser­vices are be­com­ing more and more ef­fec­tive at gen­er­at­ing alerts for wide rang­ing po­ten­tial threats, but this has re­sulted in in­creas­ing an­a­lyst over­head and de­lays from threat de­tec­tion to in­ci­dent re­sponse. There needed to be a way to au­to­mate an­a­lyst work­flows so they can fo­cus on what truly threat­ens the or­ga­ni­za­tion,” com­mented Richard By­field, founder and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Datacom TSS.
